Windows 10 Version 1903 Update Is Disabling GPUs On Some Surface Book Devices… Among Other Issues

Remember when I said that you should likely wait for a bit before installing the latest Windows 10 feature update? Here’s an example why I put out that advice. Microsoft has had to admit on a list that has all the known issues with Windows 10 version 1903 that this update can make the dGPU on Surface Book devices to disappear which forces the Surface Book to run with the slower and less capable integrated graphics.

Now the list that I linked to above is pretty long, which is not at all encouraging if you were thinking of upgrading. Which based on that list alone, is a hell no. Combine that with Microsoft’s recent reputation for putting out feature updates that break your system, and the conclusion is clear. Avoid this update for as long as you can.
