    @Killer_Networking Sorry to hijack this thread, that odd issue with KCC running at startup has gone away completely. I uninstalled it using Revo and ran Killer remover app followed by a reboot. Afterwards installed KCC and no problems whatsoever.
    Did you guys tweak the power saving profile because even 5GHz consumes less power, the power drain is similar to 2.4GHz band. I have 30 mins of extra battery runtimes.

    This release tweaked the prioritization engine. I can't think of any direct reason why that would affect power consumption, but hey, what's good is good! ;)

    The beta version uses the dynamic bandwidth feature. Its primary purpose is to test and garner feedback for that feature and, when it is tweaked or updated, it will be for that reason, so its version numbers and release dates will reflect that more than any relation to the primary release branch.

    I'm here most days, Monday thru Friday. ;)

    (Edited to correct where I misspoke about the beta)

    The 1550 will be in Alienware machines very soon, and MSI and other vendors shortly thereafter.

    So when Killer 1550 comes out, will 1535 stop receiving new features and optimisation to favor 1550?
    @Papusan That means 17 r4,15 r3, MSI GT73/83VR will be in EOL list very soon.

    Always like this. All depends on how diffrent New vs. old Killer cards will become. A major change is the worst. Then will old tech become more and more abandoned. They can say no it won't happen, but the history say otherwise.

    The problem with Intel is they're shipping data collection executable that is buried in C:\Program Files\Intel\Intel Telemetry 2.0 or even in Program Data as well.
    Oh well, that means Killer 1535 will be 100% operational on Linux. Hahaa. Linux simply loves hardware so do I.

    My internet connection is fiber (AT&T). I had been just using the Killer driver, without the KCC until recently After installing the KCC, I noticed that download/upload rates (as measured in KCC or at DSLReports using Chrome) were consistently in the 85-96 Mbps range. So I uninstalled all, and reinstalled just the Killer driver, and rates measured by DSLReports are now in the 350 Mbps range. I suspect that there was some setting in KCC that I didn't optimize, but do you have an explanation?
    Best,

    Joe
