"Killer Xeno Pro provides a clear performance benefit if the user encounters a heavy online gaming load, like multiple enemies or friends in the same area. If the user wants to download or upload files while gaming with no impact on performance, the Killer Xeno Pro excels at this task as well. Finally, if the user communicates with a voice chat program while gaming, Killer Technology and its Hardware Bandwidth Control provide a clear advantage to the gamer."
