Microsoft has just released this month’s firmware updates for the Surface Book and the Surface Pro 4, the company’s latest members of the Surface family rolled out in October 2015.
First and foremost, the Surface Book. According to the Surface update history page, this new firmware version updates Microsoft’s drivers for Surface System Aggregator firmware and Surface UEFI, as well as Intel’s drivers for the HD Graphics 520 board and Intel Display Audio.
“Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 driver update (v126.96.36.19909) improves the overall stability of the graphics driver, resolves screen flickering in several popular applications, and cases where the display does not reinitialize correctly after the device resumes from sleep or hibernation,” Microsoft explains.
For those owning a Surface Book with an Nvidia graphics card, there’s also an update for you too, and so is a large collection of Intel drivers for the used hardware, such as the AVStream Camera 2500, the Control Logic, and the CSI2 Host Controller.
What’s also very important is that this new firmware version also brings improvements to Windows Hello, Redmond’s new biometric authentication system that’s exclusively available on Windows 10.
