Bluetooth and Wi-Fi combined on Killer Gaming card

Killer Gaming, the network card maker specializing in traffic management technology that prioritizes games before other traffic, has introduced the Killer Wireless-N 1202 module. The successor to the Killer 1102 includes Bluetooth 4.0 onboard, saving notebook makers space by not having to include Bluetooth through a sperate module.

The Wireless-N 1202 matches the Wi-Fi capabilities of the 1102, being a half-size mini-PCIe card with dual antennas, dual bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz), dual-stream MIMO, 802.11n a/b/g/n, and automatic traffic prioritization. The addition of Bluetooth 4.0 to the board lets major OEM notebook use the extra room it would have used on a Bluetooth module on other extras, such as an extra drive.

Qualcomm Atheros (the parent company of Killer Gaming) also announced a wired Ethernet version called the Killer E2200, to be included in gaming motherboards. Both the Killer E2200 and the Wireless-N 1202 are said to be used by currently unnamed companies in the near future, though additional details have yet to arrive. [via The Verge]
