One other problem I have with the term "gaming adapter" is the overuse
by the marketeers of the term "gaming".   So we have gaming systems,
keyboards, monitors, mice, chairs and probably coffee cups.  The
original meaning of "to game" is "manipulate (a situation), typically in
a way that is unfair or unscrupulous."   Perhaps the term when used by
marketers, is apt.

Reminds me of the overuse of "turbo".
