Snake oil?

I'm pretty sure people still remember the Killer NIC from Rivet Networks. Everyone I know was calling it snake oil that Killer quickly went bankrupt and was bought by Atheros who only used the brand to make run-of-the-mill cards with existing chips, only with custom firmware and drivers, and then resold the brand to Intel lately. Surely this is no different?
