Microsoft releases first driver updates for its new Surface Book 2

Just a couple of days after Microsoft’s 13.5-inch Surface Book 2 started shipping in select markets, the new Surface device has already received some driver updates that should improve reliability and compatibility (via Neowin). As the hybrid laptop actually ships with the Windows 10 Creators Update instead of the more recent Fall Creators Update, two different sets of driver updates are now rolling out to Surface Book 2 owners.

According to the Surface Book 2 update history page, the different updates have started to roll out all devices on November 18. If you’re still running the Creators Update on your Surface Book 2, here is what you should see in Windows Update:
