New firmware updates for Surface Studio and Surface Studio 2 improve pen latency

Microsoft has released new firmware updates for its Surface Studio and Surface Studio 2 all-in-one PCs. The updates include new NVIDIA drivers that should improve Surface Pen latency and general reliability.

Here’s what’s new for Surface Studio 2 PCs with NVIDIA GTX 1060 and 1070 GPUs:

  • NVIDIA – Display – 26.21.14.3140 improves Pen latency, and improves device stability with updated NVIDIA driver support.

Here’s what’s new for the original Surface Studio with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M and GTX 980M GPUs:

  • NVIDIA – Display – 26.21.14.3140 improves Pen latency and reliability.
  • Surface – Human Interface Device – 23.608.139.0 improves Pen latency and reliability.

Surface firmware updates usually roll out gradually, so don’t worry if you don’t see the new bits immediately in Windows Update. The Surface Studio 2 will celebrate its first anniversary on October 2, which will be the day of Microsoft’s upcoming Surface event in New York City. It remains to be seen if we’ll see the company unveil a Surface Studio 3 on this occasion, but the all-in-one PC could certainly use a minor spec bump.
