UR28M Latency and Driver Version

I’m experiencing an unusable amount of latency of aprox 1/8 note with my UR28M and Ableton Live using the External Instrument plugin. Lowering the UR28M buffer did not make any noticeable difference apart from the lowest setting where it was crackling but still had about the same amount of unusable latency.

I am running Windows 10 and the latest v2.11 UR28M firmware. What is puzzling is that the latest UR Tools download is dated March 28, 2019 and yet somehow contains an older driver [Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver V1.10.3] even though the newer driver [Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver V1.10.4] is dated before that as January 29, 2019. So do I follow the date or the version number? Currently I have USB Driver V1.10.3 installed as that is dated March 2019.
