AMD Noise Suppression is now available, major OpenGL updates
AMD’s new graphics 22.7.1 driver brings support for the new noise reduction technology.
AMD Noise Suppression is a new feature coming to AMD Software stack. According to AMD, this technology works in real-time, and it is boosted by deep learning algorithm. The main purpose is to reduce background noise and improve audio clarity, no matter if it’s for the important meeting or a competitive gaming.
AMD Noise Suppression reduces background audio noise from your surrounding environment, providing greater clarity and improved concentration whether you are focused on an important meeting or staying locked-in on a competitive game. By using a real-time, deep learning algorithm to reduce background audio noise, this new feature works for both your input and output devices across any AMD-powered system, removing unwanted background noise captured on your microphone or from someone else’s device.
One should note however, that Noise Suppression is only available for Ryzen 5000 and Radeon RX 6000 or newer hardware. It is not stated when or if support for older hardware is planned.
OpenGL updates for Minecraft
Furthermore, AMD announces a major OpenGL performance uplift with 22.7.1 driver. The company claims up to 92% better performance in Minecraft OpenGL when running Radeon RX 6000 series GPU at 4K. Unfortunately no other game or GPU configuration is mentioned.
Starting today, for those who enjoy games that run on OpenGL, AMD Software now includes OpenGL optimizations, providing updated support where you can experience up to a whopping 85% increase in performance in titles such as Minecraft!
