SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI), today announced the availability of its Killer DoubleShot offering on high performance gaming laptops from MSI Computer. Killer DoubleShot encompasses a melding of Killer's Ethernet and wireless networking solutions that features a newly designed unified user interface for streamlined user control. Designed to provide the lowest-latency, highest-performance Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections for online games, video and voice, the MSI GT70 is the first product equipped with Killer Technology's award-winning Wi-Fi and Ethernet hardware with unified Killer Network Manager software.

"The industry has come to know Killer technology as the choice solution to intelligently manage network traffic and optimize a user's online experience," said Michael Cubbage, director of business development for the networking business unit of Qualcomm Atheros. "With MSI's integration of our new Killer DoubleShot Wi-Fi and Ethernet solution, we are able to offer laptop gamers the chance to have the highest-performance connection to their online games, regardless of what type of Internet connection they use."

MSI is the first computer manufacturer to ship Killer's award-winning Ethernet and wireless hardware on the same system with a unified driver architecture and a customized version of Killer Network Manager that controls both the Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections. Killer DoubleShot consists of the Killer Wireless-N 1202 high performance 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi module with Bluetooth and the Killer E2200 high performance gigabit Ethernet controller. The Wireless-N 1202 module and the E2200 controller both ship with the Killer Network Manager software, offering Advanced Stream Detect to identify and intelligently prioritize all network traffic. Visual Bandwidth Control is also featured, allowing users to see the amount of bandwidth being used by each application and manually control or block them to suit their online needs.
