AMD-based Surface Laptop 3 updates improve graphics and stability




It's once again time for a new batch of updates to make their way to Surface devices, specifically the Surface Laptop 3 with AMD chipsets. Microsoft is rolling out a set of driver and firmware updates that improve the overall stability and performance of the device, just a week after similar updates were rolled out to the Intel variants.


As a reminder, AMD processors are found in the consumer variants of the Surface Laptop 3 15-inch, while the 13.5-inch models and business variants of the laptop all use Intel processors. The list of updates includes a new AMD graphics driver and new firmware. Here's the full list:


Windows Update History Name Device Manager Name Update
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. - Display - 26.20.12063.1003 AMD Radeon (TM) Vega 9 Graphics - Display Adapter / AMD Radeon (TM) Vega 11 Graphics – Display adapters Improves system graphics performance, stability, and security.
Surface - HIDClass - Surface TCON device -Human Interface Devices Resolves system bugcheck while resuming from sleep.
Surface - System devices - Surface Integration Service Device - System devices Improves integration between system services and resolves an issue with telemetry reporting.
Surface - Firmware - 16.407.139.0 Surface System Aggregator - Firmware Improves system stability and system telemetry reporting.
Surface – Firmware –1.2746.140.0 Surface UEFI – Firmware Addresses security updates and improves system stability.


If you happen to be using an Intel-based variant of the Surface Laptop 3 and you missed last week's updates, here's what they added:



As usual, the updates require a recent version of Windows 10, specifically the May 2019 Update or newer. They may also be rolling out gradually, so not everyone will see them right away.


The Surface Laptop 3 was the first time Microsoft introduced AMD-based versions of Surface products, but it was only for the 15-inch variant. Microsoft is expected to give consumers the choice between AMD and Intel processors in both 13.5- and 15-inch variants with the Surface Laptop 4, which is reportedly coming in April. The refresh should also feature the latest processors from both companies.
