2.9X Faster, 3.5X Lower Latency

Unlike traditional memory designs where signals are often distorted by electromagnetic signals from other components, the X99A’s design utilizes DDR4 Boost technology with fully isolated memory circuitry to ensure signal purity. Killer DoubleShot-X3 Pro allows the two Killer Ethernet connectors and Wi-Fi adapter to work in tandem for the highest speeds around (up to 2.867 Gbps) whether you’re using a wired or wireless connection. The Killer Network Manager allows users to customize which applications receive the most bandwidth, so you can prioritize your favorite games over other programs.
