LK Bhupathi, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Aquantia: “We
listened to feedback from the gaming community – they want easy access
to high-performance Multi-Gig Ethernet hardware at competitive price
points. Amazon provides us with the customer-focused approach that
gamers and PC enthusiasts demand. Aquantia decided to kick off our
Amazon presence with a special gaming edition of our 10G AQtion Ethernet
Adapter combined with the beta version of Aquantia’s prioritization
software so users can tightly control latency and lag.”

According to Jon Peddie Research’s most recent worldwide report on
prebuilt and DIY gaming focused PCs – including upgrades and accessories
– the market exceeded $30 billion for the first time in 2017.1
At the same time sales of PC games made up 28% of the overall global
games market value of $116 billion.2 Selecting Amazon to
reach this potentially lucrative market in North America was a simple
choice. Amazon is responsible for 44% of all US e-commerce sales – or
about 4% of all US retail sales. The most sales on Amazon – more than $8
billion – are created through the company’s consumer electronics
division, which includes PCs and computer components.3

The combination of the gamer edition AQN-107 with the new Aquantia
software will allow gamers to prioritize gameplay over other LAN
activity. The reduction in lag and latency provides the reaction time
advantage which can mean the difference between living on to play more
and a “Game Over” situation. Twitch streamers, in particular, will
benefit from dynamically controlling both the upload and download speeds
through the prioritization interface.

About the Gamer Edition AQtion AQN-107

The Gamer Edition AQtion AQN-107 in classic black supports 10GBASE-T
Ethernet in compliance with the IEEE 802.3an standard. It is also
