• Very fast TCP throughput at close range


  • Much higher latency and jitter than the Killer Wireless-N 1202
  • Supports only two spatial streams

At A Glance

Intel makes a high-quality wireless adapter, but if you require low latency, Qualcomm's Killer NIC line of Wi-Fi adapters are the better bet.
