Surface Go Review

Microsoft’s 10-inch Surface Go has just received a new driver update, a little more than two months after a first firmware update one that improved system stability (via Neowin). The new drivers should appear as “Surface – System –” in Windows Update, and they should improve Generic IO & Memory Access ahead of the re-release of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

In the release notes, Microsoft says that “ improves display calibration addressing incorrect power setting behaviors associated with Windows 10 October 2018 Update.” That’s all the details we have, though Microsoft also noted that there are no known issues with this driver update.

The Surface Go made a very good impression when it was released back in August, and it’s Microsoft’s most affordable Surface ever. An LTE variant is expected to launch at some point, but Microsoft has yet to share an ETA. For now, though, the Surface Go is available in more markets than the freshly-released Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2, which are currently only available in 10 markets worldwide.
