This is interesting. I am wondering where Killer is putting there singular processor, and wondering if this will add to two things. The first of course is if there is an extra processor built in to the board what are the heat consequences. The second is a bus related question, which bus will the NIC run on or in, and being separate if this is so as it is in there stock units what bus does this impact (PCI/Serial/PCI-Express/etc). I have looked at the Killer NIC units for a couple of years now, sometimes I have been tempted to get one, but justifying the cost for an UBER NIC card has not as of yet won out over other things.
