never used or seen one so none of this is from experience but

their description of how it works makes sense....in short...the nic has it's own ram and processor which allow the contraption to bypass the normal windows processes involved in pushing data in and out of the nic card (sort of like how a graphics card makes graphics better than onboard)... it also (by their description) will give packet priority to the gaming packets so your message to shoot will take precedence over a Google ad (in theory)....so basically what it's doing is taking the network packet shaping away from the cpu and also adding preferential packet treatment... it's also pretty nifty looking...

this isn't to say that you should run out and buy the thing...but i do see where it could work
