Windows 11 Kills Killer Networking

If you have "Killer" networking in your PC you should probably hold off on installing Windows 11 until Microsoft straightens out a software conflict. This notification (thanks PC Gamer) states that until a patch is released, systems running Intel's "Killer" networking software under Windows 11 are experiencing slowdowns. The fix is currently expected in a week. Here's the problem:
Compatibility issues have been found between some Intel “Killer” networking software and Windows 11. Devices with the affected software might drop User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packets under certain conditions. This creates performance and other problems for protocols based on UDP. For example, some websites might load slower than others in affected devices, with videos streaming slower in certain resolutions. VPN solutions based on UDP might also be slower.

This is unsurprising considering that Killer driver development has stagnated ever since Intel acquired them (Rivet Networks). They likely just wanted the patents.
