    New Surface Pro 3 Firmware Update - June 6th, 2017


    The following updates via Windows Update are available for all Surface Pro 3 devices:

    Supported Operating System: Windows 10 , Windows 8.1

    Today we’ve released updated drivers for the Surface Pro 3. This update includes new drivers for Surface Pro Embedded Controller Firmware and Surface Pro UEFI that improve battery life during sleep and PXE performance on IPv6.

    These updates are available in MSI and ZIP format from the Surface Pro 3 Drivers and Firmware page in the Microsoft Download Center. Click Download to download the following files.

    • SurfacePro3_Win10_14393_1702002_0.msi
    • SurfacePro3_Win10_14393_1702002_0.zip
    • SurfacePro3_Win10_10586_1702002_0.msi
    • SurfacePro3_Win10_10586_1702002_0.zip
    • SurfacePro3_Win8x_9600_1702002_0.msi
    • SurfacePro3_Win8x_9600_1702002_1.zip

    Note: In the name of each of these files you will find a Windows build number, this number indicates the minimum supported build required to install the drivers and firmware contained within. For example, to install the drivers contained in SurfacePro3_Win10_14393_1702002_0.msi, you must have Windows 10 Version 1607, the Anniversary Update, or newer installed on your Surface Pro 3. You can find a list of the build numbers for each version of Windows 10 in Windows 10 release information.

    Note: Some earlier releases of Surface driver and firmware for Windows 10 do not contain a minimum build number in the file name. These files have a minimum supported build of Build 10240, Windows 10 Version 1507, RTM.

    Hmmm.... My update history shows the following, so it's possible these updates came out earlier and the legend in the Updates window simply shows the date of capture not the date of release:

    Notice that on my SP3, the release numbers for the two most recent firmware updates are identical to the ones showing in your post. But notice further that my install dates are back in May, well before June 6. Interesting, eh?
    Thanks for the heads-up nonetheless!

    PS: Upon further reflection, I now understand that because my SP3 is on the Insider Preview for Current Branch, I probably got the firmware updates before they were released to the general user base outside that preview program. Now, it all makes sense. I leave my original post unaltered to inform other readers that Insider Preview users may see firmware release dates that differ from official, general release dates. I didn't know that, so I assume others may be likewise unaware of that distinction. Hope that's OK.
