Usually, I report on firmware updates at the end of the week during my Weekly News Roundups but I happened to have a few extra minutes this morning, so I thought I’d let you know that Microsoft recently released some firmware updates.
This month, the updates were only for the Surface Pro 2 and Surface Pro 3. None of the other models got an update during this monthly patch cycle. The updates for both models were released a couple of days ago (the 18th) so if you haven’t been prompted to install them yet, you will be soon.
August 2015 Firmware for Surface Pro 2 and 3: What’s Included?
The update this month was pretty simple and only included one driver listed as Intel Corporation driver update for Intel(R) HD Graphics Family. It bumps the HD Graphics driver to version 10.18.15.4256.
That’s it. Just the one driver.
Microsoft says it will improve graphic stability and performance if you’re running Windows 10.
So now you know….
