Bigfoot introduced its second-generation gaming network card, the Killer Xeno, almost exactly seven months ago. While Bigfoot scored distribution deals with vendors of pre-built gaming PC systems, it also planned to distribute retail cards through EVGA for $130 a pop.
Today, the EVGA Killer Xeno Pro can be bought for $99.99 at Newegg, and Bigfoot says you can look forward to a similar product from another company—VisionTek. Bigfoot and VisionTek have partnered up to distribute the Killer Xeno Pro in North America, Europe, and Asia.
You might already know VisionTek for its line of AMD-based graphics cards and TV tuners, but the firm also offers power supplies, mice, and a keyboard with an iPod dock. VisionTek's version of the Killer Xeno Pro looks a lot like the EVGA card, with a short circuit board, PCI Express x1 interface, and audio ports for a stereo headset. (Aside from accelerating network transfers and purportedly lowering pings, the Xeno also offloads voice communication.)
