The new VisionTek Killer HD 5770 pairs the video card enthusiasts at VisionTek with the networking masterminds at Bigfoot Networks. In reality, what it does is give users looking to upgrade both their graphics cards and their network cards a way to do so in one easy step.
The AMD Radeon 5770 GPU comes with 1GB of GDDR5 and gives gamers two DVI-I ports and one HDMI. The KillerNIC offers users an Ethernet jack right next to the video ports, with an onboard processor running at 400MHz to analyze, prioritize and route your Internet traffic.
Designed to boost your games while keeping latency to a minimum, the VisionTek Killer HD 5770 is due out in two weeks, with an expected $200 cost. While that $199.99 is enough to buy a single HD 6850, it’s still ten dollars cheaper than buying a 5770 and a Killer 2100 network card separately.
