Default 8.1 driver update on MS Update

I'm not sure exactly what driver it is just yet but I have an 'optional update' on the Winupdate site for my win 8.1 installation. It is said to be for my 6900 series and it is WDDM 1.2. There is a 'further update later' when you click on the 'more information' button.

I will update after I do a reboot and check into how games and things are running.

*update 1*

D3D version is 9.14.10.0984, OpenGL is 6.14.10.12417 and 2d driver version is 8.01.01.1331.
Catalyst version is 8.11

Is that anything new over what others have right now?

**update 2**

It still doesn't solve my issue of alt-tab crashing in any game I play. If I alt tab for example in Torchlight 2, SC2, League of Legends or whatever the game will crash to a bugsplat message. (not a driver crash)

alt-tab crashes eventually forced me to go back to Windows8, after running 8.1 preview for a month. Screen flickers during flash videos were also annoying, but I believe that has been fixed recently through a Windows update.

I think alt-tab is broken for games on nVidia graphic cards too.

I'm not a huge gamer anyway but MS really needs to fix this issue. I'm wondering if the ball is not back in AMD/Nvidia's court now that 8.1 has been released to manufacturers.
