You read it right, folks. Killer NIC maker Bigfoot Networks is rolling out a line of wireless cards! Announced today, the Killer Wireless-N series is a half-size mini-PCIe 802.11/a/b/g/n wireless adapter suitable for replacing existing cards or being installed by an OEM.
The Killer Wireless-N series leverages the Killer technology in a new form, Killer Wireless.
