I'm pretty sure the main selling point for Killer NIC cards has always been the ridiculous heatsink. I don't foresee the K1 selling as well.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Good to see Falcon Northwest staying strong by providing top notch products in it's PC's. I thought the main selling point was that the NPU takes the load of the CPU for faster online gaming.
