Release notes:

AMD Catalyst 11.1a hotfix for AMD Radeon HD 6900 and AMD Radeon HD 6800 series graphics cards installed in a Windows 7 based system.

AMD Catalyst Driver 11.1a Hotfix Features:

* Performance improvements for AMD Radeon™ HD 6900 & AMD Radeon HD 6800 series graphics cards
* AMD Catalyst Control Center – New Tessellation controls
o Gives users control over the tessellation levels used in applications
* AMD Catalyst AI Texture Filtering updates
o The High Quality setting remains unchanged: This setting provides reference quality filtering from AMD hardware
o The Quality setting now matches the High Quality setting in all respects but one: it enables an optimization that limits tri-linear anisotropic filtering to areas surrounding texture mipmap level transitions, while doing bilinear anisotropic filtering elsewhere. This optimization offers a way to adjust filtering performance without visibly affecting image quality
o The Performance setting has also been updated. It now provides a smooth filtering option that is designed to eliminate most shimmering while preserving the detail provided by anisotropic filtering.

Note: Before proceeding with your driver installation we suggest you make sure you are installing the latest version available and for the appropriate model/revision and Operating System. We strongly suggest following 'readme' instructions for installing drivers when available. Often restarting your system will be necessary for the new driver to become active and start functioning properly.
