    Hey,

    Can anyone tell me if the latest generation of the surface pen is compatible with a surface 3 pro or surface 3 (atom) please?

    The Surface Pro 4 Pen works with the Surface 3, Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.

    Will the pen work the same way as on the SP4 on a S3? With that I mean: will the eraser function as well? And will I have as many pressure points?

    Just got the SP4 Pen to use on my SP3.
    I followed the instructions @gjblack71 posted installing both MS Surface Pen drivers and Wintab drivers.

    It works and I also now have the pen customization options in the Surface App, but the eraser doesn't work and there is no pressure sensitivity in Photoshop (7.0).
