New AMD Radeon GPU Driver Drops Noise Suppression Technology, Major OpenGL Performance Improvement
AMD has released Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1 software for owners of Radeon graphics cards. The new driver comes with the chipmaker’s highly anticipated AMD Noise Suppression technology and OpenGL optimizations.
AMD Noise Suppression is a new feature that reduces background noise in your environment when you’re talking to someone or playing your favorite multiplayer title. The technology works on AMD-based system input and output devices. The only requirement is that you must have a system with a Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) or newer processor.
AMD Noise Suppression removes noise from your microphone and the microphone on the other end of the conversation. The feature can be accessed in the latest Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1 software under the Audio and Video tab, where you can choose to enable it on your input, your output, or both devices. When your game or communication software is open, switch the input or output device to “AMD Streaming Audio Device” and enjoy clearer and crisper communication.
Another important improvement over the Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1 driver is the improvement in OpenGL performance. This will come as music to the ears of users who play OpenGL games, such as Minecraft. With this new driver, AMD has estimated an increase in frame rates up to 90% higher than the previous Minecraft driver (22.6.1).
According to AMD internal information Minecraft testing at 4K and Fabulous settings with a Ryzen 7 5800X3D chip, the Radeon RX 6750XT showed a 90% improvement in frame rates. In contrast, the Radeon RX 6800 XT delivered 92% higher frame rates. Additionally, the Radeon RX 6950XT offered good lift up to 89%.
AMD is also proud to announce that Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) now supports Radeon RX 5000 and RX 6000 graphics cards found in AMD Ryzen laptops with hybrid graphics. Additionally, Radeon Super Resolution now supports the borderless fullscreen option in games. You can now configure it in AMD’s Adrenaline software.
Finally, AMD improved Radeon Boost, a feature that lowers the game’s resolution when it detects fast movement on your screen. Radeon Boost will work best in titles including Ring of Elden, Resident Evil Village, and Valorant.
