Qualcomm Atheros Announces New Killer Networking Controllers
The new Wireless-N 1202 is essentially the same as the 1102 model, only now it comes with Bluetooth 4.0 support baked in. Otherwise, it retains the same dual-band MIMO design in a half-mini PCI-E card form factor. According to The Verge, the Wireless-N 1202 will be offered as an upgrade option for a "major laptop OEM" in May.
On the wired side of the LAN party, the Killer E2200 gigabit Ethernet controller will wiggle its way onto high-performance gaming motherboards and offer the same features as the Wireless-N 1202 but in a non-wireless package. This one's available now, Qualcomm Atheros says.
