  8. Surface Duo begins receiving its first firmware update for 2021 Microsoft is rolling out a new firmware update for the Surface Duo, making it the first update in over two months.

  14. Battery issues strike Surface users once again, with new Surface Pro 5 and 6 tablets affected Users are reporting that their older Surface Pro models are no longer living up to their initial battery life expectations. Surface users are of course not new to battery life issues; with Surface Pro 3 users in 2014 famously plagued with battery problems, that despite firmware update after firmware update, were never truly resolved. It appears that the same issues have been carried through to the Surface Pro 5 and 6. On this occasion, a raft of users are compla
  15. Many years ago, when the Surface brand was just getting started, Microsoft was using Intel and ARM-based chips for its products. While the long-term winner was Intel, as they have been supplying the chips for all Surface devices for the past couple of years, that may change, starting this fall. This fall, it is expected that Microsoft will host an event with Surface at the focus. The company will announce updates to its products but the bigger changes may be under the hood, rather than physical appearance. In previous years, we had seen Microsoft make bets on upcoming In
  16. Surface goes back to its roots with $10,000 desk Microsoft’s Surface Hub has been an unexpected success in boardrooms around the world, selling so fast that Microsoft even ran into production problems and shortages. With the introduction of the Surface Hub 2S, Microsoft expanded on this success by partnering with office furniture specialist Steel Case to release a special stand for the device. The stand enables, amongst other things, the ability to move the Surface Hub on wheels between meeting rooms. It also offers an integrated battery so that the device does not have to be
  17.

  21. One of the criticisms around Microsoft's Surface lineup is that it's been slow to adopt new technologies, whether it's the latest CPUs or the latest ports. With this year's lineup, the firm finally included USB Type-C on its Surface Pro 7 and Laptop 3; however, there's still no Thunderbolt 3. Thunderbolt 3 is an Intel technology that offers 40Gbps data transfer speeds, and you can use it for things like connecting an external GPU or setting up multiple 4K monitors. Every OEM except for Microsoft has adopted it in their premium PCs, and some of them have even started including it in
  22. Surface support shrivels as battery, driver, update problems persist A wide range of problems, from hardware to drivers to software, continue to dog Microsoft Surface owners. Is Microsoft doing enough to help? Mark Hachman / IDG As Microsoft approaches another round of Surface announcements, it’s more important than ever that you know how older versions of the hybrid tablet are faring. In short, we’re seeing continued, long-standing problems with batteries, keyboards, drivers, performance throttling – and support has grown long in the tooth, to th
  23. Microsoft bet against Intel with its new Surfaces — and lost The chipmaking king keeps its crown, for now Microsoft’s latest Surface hardware is now out in the world, and it’s clear that the biggest gamble that the company took with this year’s models — a move away from Intel’s market-dominating processors — hasn’t quite panned out. The focus on non-Intel chips was a big part of Microsoft’s 2019 Surface announcement. The company went out of its way to highlight the new, co-engineered Ryzen Surface Edition processor for the 15-inch Surface Laptop 3, which was
  24. For months, Microsoft has been blocking the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, or version 1903, on its own Surface Book 2 PCs. The reason was due to a known issue where the dedicated GPU driver would disappear from the Device Manager, leaving users to Intel's integrated graphics. After the PC was blocked from installing the update since July, and it's been broken since May, it's finally getting fixed. Microsoft is pushing out a series of firmware updates that will fix that issue, among a couple of others. Here's the full changelog: Windows Update Histor
  25. Microsoft's recently-announced Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 are set to be officially available starting tomorrow, but the company is already pushing out firmware updates ahead of the launch. Both devices are receiving both firmware and driver updates to improve the overall experience. The updates are available for users running Windows 10 version 1809 or later, which shouldn't really matter since the new Surface devices all ship with version 1903.
