Preview drivers make Windows 10 on Surface 3 much more stable

Not long ago we warned against trying out Windows 10 on your brand new Surface 3, but thanks to some driver updates the latest OS from Microsoft is much more usable and stable on the new tablet.

Last week, we decide to try out the latest build of Windows 10 Insider Preview on Microsoft’s brand new Surface 3. Unfortunately the system hanged quite often and the screen could occasionally become unresponsive and in need of a reboot. Some of those problems were due to the fact that there weren’t any drivers available for the new Intel Atom chip that’s inside the Surface 3.

Luckily, preview drivers are now available and can be downloaded through Windows Update, if you’re already on build 10074. If not, you’ll need to update the system as soon as the OS finishes installing and hopefully trying out Windows 10 on the new tablet becomes a bit less of a hassle.

Of course, it’s worth remembering that these are preview drivers on a preview operating system – bugs will, by definition, crop up. So if you’re not comfortable with such an experience you may want to stay away from Windows 10 for a bit longer.
