Since the final version of Windows 8 is not yet released the lack of drivers is understandable. This shouldn’t get you worried, though, as Windows 7 drivers will work just well in Windows 8, since both operating systems basically use the same platform. However, you should upgrade to the Windows 8 drivers when they will become available because they will be optimized to deliver better performance and avoid incompatibilities with the newly introduced features.
