Bigfoot Networks, the makers of the KillerNIC ethernet cards made for gaming, have secured additional financing of $8.75 million for new products.
Bigfoot claims that their cards reduce lag by running off of a dedicated ethernet card instead of on-board the motherboard. We believe, however, that most lag is caused by not having enough bandwidth to go around.
The average connection doesn't even break 10Mbps, which is the max speed of the average ethernet card. We aren't even close to being able to utilize a Gigabit ethernet connection with an ISP.
Bigfoot was able to convince investors, however, and we should expect some new products from them down the line.
