Microsoft has rolled out a new cumulative firmware and drivers pack developed for its Surface Book devices, namely the August 2018 version, which includes several changes that improve the unit’s overall security, stability, and graphics performance.
To be clear, the producer improves stability by installing new version for the Intel Camera, Graphics, Display Audio, HIDClass, SST, Serial IO, ME, CSI2, and Signal Processor 2500 drivers, Surface ME Firmware, and Microsoft Camera and Control Logic files.
In addition to that, the current update also improves graphics performance via the 188.8.131.5240 NVIDIA Graphics package, and improves system security through the 91.2289.769.0 Surface UEFI Firmware (includes Microsoft Security Advisory 180012 and 180013, as well).
When it comes to installation, save the downloadable file on your Surface unit, install all drivers included, and follow all instructions displayed on the screen for a complete and successful installation.
Still, don’t forget that this package is only compatible with Microsoft’s Windows 10 platform. Also, after applying the present release, it would be a good idea to reboot your tablet manually (if not requested automatically), to ensure all changes take effect properly.
With this in mind, download Microsoft Surface Book Firmware August 2018, install it, and check our website as often as possible, as we’ll keep you posted when a newer update is available.
However, if you choose the Windows Update Service, you’ll have to wait in line for your Surface unit to receive this update package. Through this service, all updates are provided to customers in stages; thus, you might not receive it right now.
