The original Surface Studio has a new firmware update available. The update addresses a bugcheck that occurs when devices resume from hibernation and also improves system stability. As is the case with normal firmware updates, it doesn't include any new features.
The Surface Studio originally launched in 2016. Featuring a gigantic floating display and an all-in-one form factor, the Surface Studio turns heads. It's since been succeeded by the Surface Studio 2 that has a better GPU and other improvements, but it's still a beautiful piece of hardware.
Here's everything that's new in the latest Surface Studio firmware update (opens in new tab):

To receive this firmware update, your Surface Studio needs to be running Windows 10 version 1903 or newer. The update started rolling out gradually on January 8, so you might not see it yet.
It's been some time since we've seen an update to the Surface Studio. In our piece on what we want to see from Surface in 2021, we discuss the possibility of a Surface Studio 3. In the meantime, Microsoft announced the Surface Pro 7+.
The ultimate desktop PC
There's nothing like it.
Featuring an NVIDIA GTX 1070 GPU and brighter display, the Surface Studio 2 now performs as you would expect. The one-of-a-kind display and PC experience are pricey, but Surface Studio 2 is still incomparable to any other computer in the world.

If only they could issue a firmware update that would address the phantom touch issue on my Gen1 Surface Studio, so that I could enable the touchscreen again. Really crossing my fingers that we will see a Gen3 Surface Studio this year.
