How do you get the optional update for the dGPU? It wasn't updated when I did the regular Windows Update check, but the others were. I didn't see any option to check for optional updates in the Windows Update CP...?

I didn't see the GPU update listed in Updates when I downloaded them but when I checked the driver properties it was listed with the new driver version as stated above. I'm still waiting for a fix to turn off Airplane Mode toggle when it's not on.... I know it's meaningless but it bugs me, no pun intended.

I never saw the dGPU option show up within the Windows Updates. I ended up going into the device manager, right clicked on the Display Adapter and selected the "update driver" option.

Did this firmware update do anything for the dock? Mine has gotten more flakey with the new 1.27 Firmware...

**ONGOING**
Dual Mini-DP still does not work

**NEW**
Mini-DP to VGA connection no longer recognized if SB removed from dock and reattached without power cycling dock
USB peripheral can cause monitors to drop out until power cycling dock
