GIGABYTE's new LAN Optimizer
According to GIGABYTE, the LAN Optimizer offers intelligent and adaptive network analysis and management for all network traffic types.

The LAN Optimizer is a free software application that works in conjunction with the Realtek 8111E Network LAN Controller to monitor and manage your PC’s network behavior. It has a simple user interface that allows users to select the types of network traffic they want to prioritize, including gaming, media streaming, communications or web browsing data traffic.
