And WiFi is still a problem.
We reported on the 5GHz WiFi problem on August 7, but another problem has also emerged: performance.
Clocks down powerful machines to 400MHz
The problem causes the CPU to be held back after a recent firmware update. Microsoft has now confirmed the CPU issue and is working to correct the error in another update.
The problem is that Surface Book 2, and Surface Pro 6, the company's newest and fastest products, are far from as fast as they should be; Some customers report forced shutdowns down to 400MHz. One possible reason is that the Intel CPUs in these models think they are too hot and therefore clock down to protect the hardware.
