Speed kills, and speed is also required if you're planning to do any hardcore online gaming. Ping times can mean life and death in an online deathmatch, and TRENDnet is looking out for your head. In a sense, anyway. The company has just shipped their newest wireless adapter, the 450Mbps Wireless N Gaming Adapter. The TEW-687GA networks computers, gaming consoles, televisions, and DVRs to the Internet at up to 450Mbps, with a Gigabit Ethernet port maintain high speeds with wired accessories.


The whole thing is a driver-free ordeal, with three spatial streams per antenna (MIMO) generating a maximum theoretical wireless throughput of 450Mbps. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is also included, and while it's tailored for gaming, it's obviously able to handle any type of wireless activity in the home. It'll sell for $149.99, which ain't cheap, but it's definitely one of the faster solutions out there.

@ that price it better handle 1080p 240hz, and 3D? But I doubt it?

It would really piss people off if they had this setup and then they got Granturismo 5 and the HD 3D looked like crap and kept hanging:P
