Surface Book Picks Up Its Own Massive Set of Updates

Posted on August 25, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface with 6 Comments

Joining most of its other stablemates, Microsoft’s original Surface Book this week picked up its own massive set of firmware updates.

And yes, these are largely related to the Spectre and Meltdown chipset flaws too.

“We released updates for Surface Book devices running Windows 10 Fall Creators Update version 1709 or greater to Windows Update,” Microsoft’s Scott McArthur writes in the Surface Blog for IT Pros. “These updates improve system stability, graphics performance, and resolve potential security vulnerabilities including Microsoft security advisory ADV180012 and ADV180013.”

The following updates are now available for Surface Book:

  • Intel(R) AVStream Camera 2500 v30.15063.6.6082 improves system stability.
  • Intel(R) CSI2 Host Controller v30.15063.6.6082 improves system stability.
  • Intel(R) Display Audio v10.25.0.8 improves system stability.
  • Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 v24.20.100.6136 improves system stability.
  • Intel(R) Imaging Signal Processor 2500 v30.15063.6.6082 improves system stability.
  • Intel(R) Management Engine Interface v11.7.0.1057 improves system stability.
  • Intel(R) Precise Touch Device v1.2.0.100 improves system stability.
  • Intel(R) Serial IO 12C Host Controller v30.100.1725.1 improves system stability.

  • Intel(R) Smart Sound Technology (Intel(R) SST) OED v9.21.0.3347 improves system stability.
  • Microsoft Camera Front v30.15063.6.6082 improves system stability.
  • Microsoft Camera Rear v30.15063.6.6082 improves system stability.
  • Microsoft Control Logic v30.15063.6.6082 improves system stability.
  • Microsoft IR Camera Front v30.15063.6.6082 improves system stability.
  • NVIDIA GeForce GPU v23.21.13.9140 improves graphics performance.
  • Surface Management Engine Firmware v11.8.50.3448 improves system stability.
  • Surface UEFI Firmware v91.2289.769.0 resolves potential security vulnerabilities, including Microsoft Security Advisory 180012 and 180013.

Surface Book owners are no stranger to firmware updates of course, as these machines were the primary issue in Microsoft’s Surfacegate issues. But even in the scope of previous updates, this set is particularly noteworthy. And very similar to recent sets of massive updates for Surface Pro 4 and Surface Laptop, Surface Pro (2017), and Surface Book 2.
