It could be just INF , from my experience with Intel if you didn't notice, every driver they made had an big issue. I will give you couple examples.
The intel Network drivers with Ixxx chipset and Intel® 82579V Gigabit LAN Controller when you used windows 7 , 8.1 , 10 with drivers above 19.1 not included you had spikes in DPC every 5 seconds to 10000+. 19.1 was the only driver which worked. I think they fixed it on driver version 20.3 + or something.
Another example is Intel Rapid Storage, windows 8.1 and windows 10 Rapid Storage higher than 12.9.4.xxx any version 13.x and 14.x has APM issue which causes the Hardisk to park every 5 seconds, destroying any hardisk with APM enabled, for example Samsung HD103SJ and Hitachi 7200 and such.
Both examples you can oversee here as I'm not the only one, and some people had their hardisk DIED , but I was smart and realize the 1 hr after installing windows 10 that this should not be like that, and I was with windows 7 till this time skipping windows 8.1 , and it didn't happen in windows 7 no matter what drivers I've used.
I'm telling you the issues you've might missed or didn't see because you didn't use the same hardware, it doesn't mean it pitch perfect no matter how you see it, INF or any other drivers can be destructive and for my friend uninstalling the intel chipset had a better and faster feeling and he's one friend which hard to show him differences.

DPC Latency problems with Intel 82579LM based Network Controller on Windows 8
Sound ISSUES Windows 10 DPC - Intel LAN drivers
QUOTE " "guys its the intel network driver, anything past 19.1 will cause this issue, i use 18.5 with no issues, install intel driver 18.5 and your dpc latency spikes will go away!"
EDIT : From what I've read it still didn't fixed on the newest drivers (20.3) 20.3 QUOTE "" : :
still not fixed.
if you disable the Intel LAN in Device Manager the problem goes away
I recommend buying a cheap USB adapter to use in the mean time, it fixed the problem here.
Also as a reminder, MANY network adapters are having issues, Intel isnt alone.
I am using a TP LINK with Mediatek drivers for windows 8 and the issue is resolved.
I reinstalled Windows 10 - 5 times before finding out the culprit, HOWEVER the problem didn't show up during my first installations of Windows 10 while I was testing some other softwares and the OS. I think the problem might be related to concurrent connections which I started testing on later installations.
TL:DR It seems to happen when using P2P clients like Bittorrent or while opening many concurrent connections.
Do you need any more examples ?
Intel is really a piece of nothing with drivers, CPUS yes, drivers hell no.
I don't care about Intel network cards, I'm using SolarFlare 6212S and this is the best card anyone possibly have, I'm just hoping and waiting for windows server 2016 which might have included drivers for Windows 10 with RSC support, which will make this card just unbeteable in score of performance and dpc, I can reach over 9.5 Gb speed and the DPC will not even move over 100 . I'm connected using RouterOS as my router and using Optical cables from FiberStore.
I know it seems to you it is just INF drivers, but don't you see that uninstalling both Intel Chipset for both my desktop and laptop fixed the issue ? Maybe it has issue for my chipset P8Z77 ? but if you say it's only INF drivers, why would it cause my chipset to have those weird lags, including my friend with Z87 chipset, is it a problem with the 10.1.1.13 ? So if then it does affect the computer even if it's INF.
One more thing, after I uninstalled the Intel Chipset and reinstalled all drivers again, including the SolarFlare drivers I got new settings which supposed to be there but weren't in the initial install. My friend has the same windows and the same card, we tried to do the same because he did not have the same settings like I have after uninstalling the chipset. but the only difference we did is Roll Back the drivers and not uninstalling, eventually Roll Back didn't restore the settings I have and he doesn't. so Uninstalling those drivers must have an effect even for ALL Hardware. My guess those intel Chipset might fix everyone Rubber Band lag for EVERY SINGLE person on the aspect of drivers. at least using a working safe intel chipset driver for example 10.1.1.7 or something like that. still, not all intel chipset are bad, because on my laptop I'm using the specific for the laptop, even though it's for windows 10 and I'm using windows 8.1Edited by x7007 - 2/16/16 at 12:59am
