    Improving SSD performance

    I downloaded the new Magician 4.7, but it does not show a firmware update available. Has anyone tried manually updating their SP3 to EXT43B6Q?

    Surface Docking station issues

    Long shot, but they pushed an update for the dock a while back. Have you tried checking Windows Update while docked? FYI, my miniDP port quit working on both my docks last week (obviously caused by a problem with the SP3 and not the docks themselves). But the most recent firmware update fixed...

    WIFI Speed Issue

    I just had noticed my first WiFi speed issue. Normally maxes my 100/5 Internet over 40Mhz channel in 5Ghz band. I was streaming YouTube and walked between access points. My video stopped and WiFi dropped to ~1Mb down. Tried rebooting my access points, toggling Airplane mode, and moving back to...

    Hyper Tube for Youtube

    Hyper is great. If you have playback problems, you can switch to the YouTube player under Settings->Player (although it can be difficult to skip forward and back accurately using touch because of YouTube's tiny progress bar.)

    Mini display port on docking station

    If you are using a miniDP->HDMI cable, there is another issue to consider. The SP3 port probably supports DP++ (or dual-mode) which electrically turns the port into an HDMI port when you are using a passive HDMI cable. The port on the dock might not support DP++, in which case you will need to...

    External Display? 1440p or 4k? 24" or 27" ? What would you suggest?

    I'd go IPS 4k @ 60Hz. I use the 32" Dell, but the 24" or 27" would be great as well (assuming they support the old MST collage mode that the SP3 requires).

    Mini display port on docking station

    The physical wire routing is longer from the CPU/GPU to the DP port on the dock than the one on the SP3. The signal degrades over distance (plus any electrical interactions between the dock connector and SP3). Try a shorter/better cable (tested to DP1.2 bandwidth). I could not run 4k@60Hz with...

    New Intel HD Driver

    Yes, MST is emulating two separate monitors using two separate DP links. SST is one big monitor on one DP link. The SP3 cannot drive DP at 4k/60 per link, but it can drive two links at 4k/30 (which can be combined to one 4k/60 monitor in MST mode). I think professional MST combiners exist, but...

    New Intel HD Driver

    The SP3 can't drive SST 4k at 60Hz. Only MST works at that refresh. I think some others have created custom timings up to around 50Hz though which wouldn't look too bad. Search around for those settings.

    Are you pointing to the correct subfolder? I think it's x64.

    Sp3 latest update brought problems

    That sucks. Only other thing I can think is the Intel driver: •Intel(R) 8 Series PCI Express Root Port #3 - 9C14 update (v2.0.1151.0) addresses cases when the Wi-Fi adapter is not available upon resuming the system from sleep Maybe try uninstalling this one?

    Ideal Monitors for SP3 - scaling and resolution across sizes

    Agree that keeping monitors the same distance is ideal. Too much work for your eyes to change viewing distance all the time. I don't actually use my SP3 screen for any real work while docked because it's too small to be useful. I meant that when using the SP3 as a standalone tablet you tend to...

    Ideal Monitors for SP3 - scaling and resolution across sizes

    If you want to avoid scaling issues, get a high res screen and keep your scaling the same across all monitors. 4k @ 24-32" will work well, e.g., the Dell UP2414Q. It is 185ppi, which is very close to the SP3's 216ppi. I have the UP3214Q (140ppi) and it works fine using the same scaling as the...

    Max resolution for dual monitors with dock station.

    You have 3 electrical channels, each capable of max 3200 x 2000 @60 Hz. You can use two channels to drive one monitor using MST to drive half the screen with each channel. You have two physical ports (one on the docking station, one on the SP3 device). DP1.2 daisy chaining allows one port to...
