Either of - ‘Didn’t you know?’ or ‘Haven’t you heard?’ – would be the appropriate response.
Off the top of my heard, ‘have + known’ tends to be reserved for discussion of length of acquaintance, as in ‘I have known Mr X for ‘so many’ years.’ (There's more to this but I'm too lazy to consult the instructive texts)
‘Haven’t you finished yet?’ would appear to be distinctly more impatient.
