surface-3-1The Surface 3 tablet was announced a couple of months ago, and given that this is an Intel-powered Surface tablet unlike previous non-Pro variants that ran on ARM, this also meant that users could install the full version of Windows. However those who were eager to install Windows 10 were told to hold off due to the lack of drivers.

The good news is that it looks like those drivers are here and Surface 3 owners who want to take the Windows 10 Preview for a spin can now do so safely. According to an update on the Microsoft Community page (via WinBeta), it looks like the pre-release drivers for Windows 10 on the Surface 3 have been released.

Users are advised to visit Windows Update in order to install them. “There is a pre-release Windows 10 driver set for Surface 3 published to Windows Update.  If you have installed Windows 10 on your Surface 3, please visit Windows Update and install these drivers. Prior to 5/13/2015 the user experience was not optimum, but the pre-release drivers should greatly improve the experience.”

It should note that these are pre-release drivers so it does not necessarily guarantee that it will work out great, but hopefully they should run without any issue. If you do run into some issues, do let us know in the comments below.
