10.6 has not been released yet. And TBH, most of the times, the updates that driver updates give are negligble to the average user, which is why I don't sit on ATI's driver page mashing F5 repeatedly on the second week of every month.

IIRC, 10.5 is supposed to reduce BF:BC2 load times for the 5000 series and the 10.5 hotfix fixes it for the 2xxx, 3xxx, and the 4xxx series, so it might interest you to pick it up because it is directly relevant.

the problem behind Metro 2033 bad FPS is not tessellation, its the horribly optimized DoF which you can disable from the game engine

I did so and i can run it @ 1440x900 4xAA DX11 all max settings with a 40+FPS

Updating to 10.5 did greatly reduce my load times in BF:BC2!
