    Default AMD 6xxx Series Drivers **Updated 2/10/11**

    For AMD 6xxx Series Only, please update to the following drivers before posting any performance issues.

    Uninstall your current display drivers and install the 11.1a hotfix 1/26/2011

    After installing 11.1a Hotfix download and install AMD Catalyst Application Profile - 11.1 CAP1 2/2/2011
    CAP1 will also enable crossfire for Rift, more info can be found at this thread

    I also highly recommend using Driver Sweeper after you uninstall your video drivers. It's a guaranteed way to avoid any conflicts from previous drivers.

    hmm color me confused (was expecting NEW drivers).. the link you posted goes to the previously posted 11.1a hotfix dated jan 26

    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

    and THEY do work for HD5000 series (I've been using them since release on 5770s)
    the use of Driver Sweeper should not be necessary if you use ATI's CIM (Catalyst Install Manager), only when moving from say nVidia to ATI or visa versa should one really bother using such.

    Indeed they are the most recent. I couldn't find a single thread pointing anyone in the right direction so i decided to create one with the intent to help people.

    Oh.. no problem, there were a couple posts around detailing the hotfix drivers and the latest CAP releases (not sure if Search is working.. doesn't seem to want to work for me using Chrome)

    Yeah that's how I found it when i was researching crossfire stuff. Figured this would be an easier way for others to find it.
