If you have a Surface Pro 3 you will be receiving a new update today to help improve the performance and stability of the Intel HD Graphics 5000 adapter under Windows 10:

The following update will be listed as “Intel Corporation driver update for Intel® HD Graphics Family” when you view your update history.
HD Graphics Family driver update (v10.18.15.4256) improves graphics performance and stability on Windows 10.

Before you go ahead with the update Microsoft warns:

Firmware updates cannot be uninstalled or reverted to an earlier version.

Another graphics adapter update is welcomed and fingers crossed it resolves the issue I’ve had connecting to the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter while using bluetooth. As Microsoft sadly seems uninterested in the issue I’m not going to hold my breath.

UPDATE: This update fixes the above issue with the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter while using bluetooth devices. What I am left with is lag between the Surface screen and the TV of between 0.5 and 1 second.
