That's the last official driver release from Asus. If you manually select the download for a caed with the AMD Radeon HD 6570 engine you will be send to the latest Catalyst version 13.1.

Maybe! To figure out, if you need any of the improvement or bugfixes, you had to go through all the release notes. Skip that and just install it. :)
