May firmware updates for the Surface Pro 2 and 3

Microsoft have released another set of firmware updates for the Surface Pro 2 and for the Surface Pro 3 devices. This time the monthly updates include a new HD Graphics driver that has better performance and improved Miracast (wireless display) support. Hopefully the improved Miracast driver will mean it works better with the beta Xbox One Miracast receiver app, so far I haven’t been able to get my Surface working with the app. Also the audio drivers have been improved.

Both the Surface Pro 2 and 3 get the same update but there are no updates for the Surface 2 this month.

The updates will come down automatically via Windows Update.

May 2015 updates

The following updates will be listed as “System Firmware Update – 5/19/2015” when you view your update history.

Note

When Surface updates are provided via the Windows Update service, they are delivered in stages to Surface customers. As a result, not every Surface will receive the update at the same time, but the update will be delivered to all devices. If you have not received the update, please manually check Windows Update later.

Surface Pro 3 UEFI update (v3.11.850.0) includes changes needed for compatibility with the updated graphics driver.

HD Graphics Family driver update (v10.18.14.4170) improves graphics performance and includes better Miracast (wireless display) support.
