Surface Pro 4 Gets a Minor Firmware Update

Surface Pro 4 owners will want to check Windows Update today: There’s a new firmware update, albeit for something minor.

Here’s what’s new:

Realtek Semiconductor Corp. driver for Realtek High Definition Audio (SST). Realtek High Definition Audio (SST) v6.0.1.7895 – Improves system stability and Cortana performance.

And … that’s it.

This is the first Surface Pro 4 firmware update that Microsoft has issued since August. At that time, Surface Pro 4 received updates to the Surface Management Engine, UEFI, Surface Integration, and Surface Integration Service Device.

    Anyone experience the Surface Pro4 WIFI issues that apparently occur with certain access points?  I purchased a Pro4 black Friday special for my wife, only to later discover an article that indicates it may not be able to work well with our Amplifi LR router.  The reg hack also does not appear to resolve the issue in all cases.  Considering return before opening...

    So, it's not firmware.

    It's a driver.  And an out-of-date one at that - Realtek's most recent version is build 8004.

    I will also say that the mDP ports on my dock appear to have stopped working. The one on the surface is, but I had to move my external display to that port. This is something I saw with the SP3 several times as MS was trying to fix the SP4 during the early days.
