    The problem is now in QA testing and there will be a hotfix driver soon, the nvidia rep said on nvidia forum.

    I found out some crazy thing, I install 11.0.0.1141 on windows 10 x64 1703 , and what I've found out that Intel Technology Access TAP Driver (NDIS 6.30) cut my internet connection from 500mbit/10mbit to max 20mbit ... I was like wtf happened till I uninstalled all the IMEI set and the speed was back again...

    Also another discovery , when you install the Intel Technology Access, what it actually does is set the Windows Timer Resolution max 1.0009 instead letting it go to 15.625 . so it doesn't do nothing but what the game should do when you start to play one or start any audio/playback sound which max it to 0.500 for best performance anyway.

    So IMEI gives nothing but issues. I still can't see any advantage by installing only the IMEI device driver in System Devices, still can't figure which version I should test and what to look for.

    also some info here

    X7007, you about Intel Management Engine ? Just do not install those drivers and disable "Unknown Device" at device manager window.

    Have we reached any consensus on whether MEI brings performance improvements or not?

    It seems to be consensus in several forums that it is not NEEDED for regular home use. But does it actually improve or worsen performance if used? Do we have articles or benchmarks to confirm this? All we see are statements indicating it affects different computer in different ways. Installing it just because it sets the TimerResolution to a lower value IS NOT a performance improvement brought by MEI, this could be done using other tools.

    Try this people go into the bios of your motherboard. Find dram configuration, if you have these options (1) No Power Down (2) PPD (3) APD (4) APD-PPD, (2 3 4) are P.S.M or Power Saving Mode's

    Ita also installs some sort of NIC driver layer, you can uninstall that and disable all ita net access.. but even with that installed it didnt affect my 150mbit net.

    Im keeping basic ITA and MEI installed and so far no issues with either of them since win10 rls..

    Atm at ita 1.9 and imei 11.7?.xx

    So can anyone give me a verdict on whether the 1144 actually does what Snight01 claims?
