Product Overview

Speed, Intelligence and Control

Killer™ Wireless-AC 1550 The first product to come out of Rivet Networks’ new partnership with Intel, the Killer™ Wireless-AC 1550 is the world’s fastest 2x2 11ac wireless networking adapter. The Killer Wireless-AC 1550 has been designed to combine the speed, intelligence, and control of Killer Networking products with the power and performance of the latest Intel wireless chipset. Delivering faster than gigabit Ethernet speeds along with the gaming functionality that gamers love, the Killer 1550 is the ideal wireless networking product for competitive gamers and performance users who demand the most from their computers.

Delivers up to 1.73 Gbps of throughput and is the ideal networking solution for gaming, streaming, and downloading. The Killer 1550 supports advanced 802.11ac Wave 2 features including 160 MHz channel support, and can drive twice the throughput of what standard 2x2 11ac adapters can deliver.

• Gigabit Wi-Fi Speeds: The Killer Wireless-AC 1550, featuring 160 MHz channel support, has a theoretical max throughput speed of 1.73Gbps when connected to a router that supports 160 MHz channels. This is faster than gigabit Ethernet and twice the speed of standard 2x2 11ac products.
• MU-MIMO Support: Killer 1550 includes full MU-MIMO (Multi-User-Multiple Input and Multiple-Output) support, which dramatically increases network efficiency by working with a MU-MIMO enabled access point. MU-MIMO allows wireless access points to support multiple transmissions at the same time, versus a single transmission at a time like normal access points. This creates additional efficiencies that can provide up to 60% faster download speeds, lower latency, and a better overall connection.
• Transmit Beamforming Technology: Killer 1550 also has Transmit Beamforming technology, which allows the Killer Wireless-AC 1550 to share location information directly to your wireless access point so that the access point can better direct its signals to you. This creates stronger wireless signals at all ranges and faster data transfers.
• Complete 802.11ac functionality: Supports dual band (2.4 GHz and 5GHz), IEEE standards-based 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, and includes Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
• Advanced Stream Detect™ 2.0 Technology: Killer 1550’s Advanced Stream Detect 2.0 Technology automatically detects, classifies, and prioritizes critical network traffic for online games, streaming video, and high-quality audio to ensure a smooth and enjoyable gaming and entertainment experience.
• Lag and Latency Reduction™ Technology: The Killer 1550 features Lag and Latency Reduction™ Technology that is designed specifically to improve online gaming and streaming video performance. Through its patented technology, Killer is able to get network packets to your applications much faster than competing products.
• Killer Control Center: Killer’s state of the art interface gives you the visibility and control needed to perfectly manage your PC’s network traffic. The Killer Control Center shows which applications and websites are using your bandwidth, and gives you the ability to optimize performance by adjusting priorities and setting bandwidth limits so that low priority traffic won’t interfere with your games, multimedia applications, or favorite websites. The Killer 1550 debuts a new and improved Killer Control Center that lets users manage priorities by category in addition to specific application or website. The Killer 1550 automatically detects over 500 popular websites and now allows the user to add their own favorite websites to the extensive list of what is already detected.
• Killer DoubleShot™ Pro: The combination of the Killer Wireless-AC 1550 and a Killer Ethernet controller gives users unprecedented speed, intelligence and control of their PC’s networking. Killer DoubleShot Pro automatically picks the fastest network connection (Killer Wireless-AC 1550 or Killer Ethernet) and sends all high priority traffic over that interface and then sends less urgent traffic over the other interface. This ensures the highest priority traffic will always be put on the fastest and most reliable link.

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.

Killer1550 M.2 (22x30) Notebook Wireless Network Card 802.11ac 1750Mbps Mimo + Bluetooth 5 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product ever This does not fit into m2 slots no matter what they try and tell you. I spent 40 minutes attempting to install this. Even went as far as removing my gpu to have move space for installation. In the end I broke my mobo and had to buy a new one. Definitely not recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought to replace a 1535 I wanted a Killer NIC in my desktop PC as planned to make a return to online gaming. As I already own the WRT32X router, a Killer NIC seemed the best choice also. I had a 1535 which was plugged into a Gigabyte M2 to PCIE conveter card, and this worked with no problems, I however wanted more! The 1550 seemed the next logical choice as it is next inline on the upgrade path. It also supported the 160MHZ channels my router supports. Skeptical at first as I know the 1535 boasts extreme range technology, whereas the 1550 doesnt, but at the price Scan offer the 1550 it was a risk I was willing to take. Install was simple and easy, just make sure you download the drivers first! Range is about the same as the 1535 but I now connect at 1.3GBPS to my router. Web pages seem snappier and there are also more options to tweak the NIC in device manager. Overal I would recommend the 1550 as a worthy upgrade to the 1535, or even as a starter wireless NIC for use in a laptop/Desktop. As always the service from Scan was awesome so cannot fault that!

Questions & Answers

Is this the proper Killer 1550 or a 9560 Intel card?

Asked by: USER48383
In terms of 'proper' card, the Killer 1550 is an Intel 9560 (hence the partnership between Rivet networks and Intel) but it has different hardware IDs which then allow for the use of the Killer applications. Using a 'stock' Intel 9560 will not allow for use of the Killer applications. So in answer to your question, it is both.

Use in a desktop machine

HI, I am looking to purchase this for use in a desktop machine. Can you advise of the correct pcie converter card to use with this? I notice you sell a silverstone mini pcie to pcie, but not sure if that would work as this Killer Nic is advertised as M.2 Regards
Asked by: S88urd
Answered my own question :) Purchased the gigabyte m2 to pcie card which works beautifuly
