  4. 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
  5. AMD Ryzen 4000-powered Microsoft Surface device may be coming soon It looks like the Surface Laptop 3 won’t be Redmond’s last AMD machine (Image credit: Future) Microsoft could be gearing up to launch Surface devices equipped with AMD’s newly-launched Ryzen 4000 APUs. Microsoft launched its first AMD-powered Surface device last year in the form the 15-inch variant of the Surface Laptop 3, which packs a custom Ryzen 7 CPU with integrated Ra

  7. Microsoft Release Firmware Updates for Several Surface Models Microsoft has released new firmware updates for several Surface models, including both the first- and the second-generation Surface Laptop.

First and foremost, the Surface Laptop series is getting a new firmware, with both the original version and the model launched last year being provided with this release if they are still running Windows 10 April 2018 Updat
  8. 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
  9. Surface batteries draining 25% in 7 minutes due to new bug Surface users have recently been experiencing battery degradation issues, and the cause is thought to be the latest Windows and firmware updates. Victims of the bug have taken to Microsoft’s community forum to share their experiences. One Surface Laptop 2 user reported significant battery drainage overnight after shutdown: Lately, after I shutdown (full shutdown, not sleep or hibernate) my fully charged Surface Laptop 2 at night, I turn it on in the morning and find that the battery has lost around 2
  10. 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
  11. 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. For the Surface Pro 7, there are five updates, which you can see below: Windows Update History Name D
  12. Microsoft has released a set of driver updates to a few of its older Surface devices, including the Surface Pro, Laptop, and Book lineups. The updates are actually dated for November 5, but they were only added to the update history today, and Microsoft has interestingly labeled them as a gradual roll-out, so you may not have received them just yet. The updates are available on machines running Windows 10 version 1903 or newer, and mostly target issues with wireless connectivity. The Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro (2017), Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 1 and 2, and Surface Book are all
  13. 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
  14. What to expect from Microsoft’s Surface hardware event Surface Pro 7, Surface Laptop 3, and some mysterious new hardware Photo by Tom Warren / The Verge Microsoft is holding a big Surface hardware event in New York City on Wednesday, October 2nd. The company has been teasing this event continually on Twitter, and is even inviting Surface fans to attend. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will be in attendance, alongside Surface chief Panos Panay. It seems like we’re on the cusp of a significant event, perhaps as big or bigger than the Surface 2015
  15. Inside Microsoft’s new custom Surface processors with AMD and Qualcomm Surface Ryzen Edition and SQ1 processors have been co-engineered Microsoft has just announced its new Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro X devices, and neither will come with an Intel processor.

The Surface Laptop 3 has a custom Ryzen Surface Edition processor on the 15-inch model, while the Surface Pro X goes the ARM
  16. Microsoft has some exciting Xbox and Surface hardware coming in 2020 Microsoft had a big year this year in terms of new hardware. It introduced the Surface Pro 7 with Ice Lake processors and a USB Type-C port, the Surface Laptop 3 with a new 15-inch flavor, and the Surface Pro X, its first Windows 10 on ARM PC. While this year's devices are certainly exciting and meaningful improvements over their predecessors, next year's will be even better. Microsoft has pre-announced more hardware for 2020 than it probably ever has in years past. And those are
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. If you shelled out $3,000 to $4,500 for a Surface Studio, you may be a bit disconcerted to discover that many don’t work with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, version 1803. Mice and keyboards keep disconnecting. Gordon Ung/Rob Schultz/IDG Microsoft made Windows 10 version 1803 available for download - and pushed to “seekers” - on April 30. It started sending the OS out to the unprotected masses on May 8. Shortly after, we started hearing complaints from Surface Pro (2017) owners that the upgrade to 1803 froze their machines. By May 11, we figured out that Surface Pro (2017) hardw
