    Intel unlocks its Windows 10 DCH graphics drivers

    This means you can use Intel's generic drivers on your old Skylake laptop, for example.

    My thoughts exactly. I had a Lenovo machine at work recently. Could never upgrade the intel graphics driver. Use to have all sorts of graphical issues. It got so bad I asked for a new machine even though it was only 2 years old. Where as my 5 year old AMD laptop has always taken AMDs latest drivers (well until AMD dropped support for the older tech GPU in my A8-5500 APU but that's another story).

    Can you link the haky way of updating Surface drivers ? I got Surface Pro 3, that is not affected by this change.

    I followed instructions like on this site https://dancharblog.wordpress.com/20...r-oem-laptops/

    but it says it doesn't apply to Surface Pro 3, but most likely it's applicable to 6th gen+ Skylake+ processors (which is on pro 4 and later), best find out what processor is in the pro3 and find the last supported Intel graphics drivers for it and following the same instructions above but using this install package you found.
