Microsoft delivers initial driver/firmware pack for Surface Book 2

Microsoft has released yesterday the initial driver and firmware pack for the Surface Book 2, which was released two weeks ago in 20 markets. As the Surface Book 2 is shipping loaded with the Windows 10 Creators Update, two driver packs are available from the Microsoft Download Center, one for the Creators Update (1703) and another one for the Fall Creators Update (1709).

The two driver packs also include the latest firmware and driver updates released last week, which improve system stability and provide support for Windows Mixed Reality on the Fall Creators Update. More details below:

Specific fixes for Surface Book 2 devices with Windows 10 Version 1703 and above include:

  • Intel(R) HD Graphics 620 (v22.20.16.4840) improves system stability.
  • Surface Dial Filter (v1.19.136.0) improves system stability.
