Surface Firmware Updates

I have an AMD Surface Laptop 3 that I am very happy with. At the time I bought it, I saved several hundred dollars over getting the equivalent Intel one, so it doesn’t bother me that the performance and battery life is worse. The performance is still twice what my base model SB1 was and the quad core really helps keep things moving when I have multiple tabs open. What does bother me (and this complaint carries over from my other Surface products) is how Microsoft pushes firmware and graphics driver updates over Windows Update without any release notes. I haven’t had a problem yet with these updates, but it would be nice to know what version of the AMD driver I am getting so I can choose to defer the update if there are known problems with games or applications I am using. I tried searching for release notes and couldn’t find any.
