According to the company's Value Indicator chart, the update improves reliability and compatibility, with no effect on security, connectivity, performance, or battery life.

A year and a half old now, the Surface Studio is the one consumer PC in Microsoft's hardware lineup that's in dire need of a refresh. It still uses a sixth-generation HQ-series processor, which is designed for high-powered laptops, and Microsoft hasn't even discounted it. You can buy one right now on the Microsoft Store for up to $4,199. Hopefully, the company announces a new model soon.
