Intel has acquired Killer-Branded NIC (network interface card) maker, Rivet Networks. With minimal latency, Killer’s products offer excellent gaming experience and this acquisition will exponentially enrich the network sector. Rivet has been a competitor to Intel in the NIC space for the past 10 years. Now Intel can capitalise on the gaming market. The two firms earlier collaborated a few years ago to develop the Killer Wireless-AC 1550 NIC.
