It does not just seem Intel to go the hardware of the now former competitor, RIVet Networks also provides software that prioritizes traffic. "Since we add Rivet Networks’ software, we will license your software to customers and develop new solutions to improve the PC connection", Write Chris Walker.

Intel and Rivet Networks have worked early together. Approximately at Killer Wireless-AC 1550 or at the Killer AX1650 based on Intel’s Wi-Fi-6 chipset and, among other things, in Dell XPS 13. How much money Intel pays for RIVET Networks is currently not publicly known. And whether the Killer brand remains further, is also unclear.
