AMD has officially released its latest software drivers that add support for Noise Suppression technology and deliver up to a 92% increase in OpenGL performance.
AMD officially releases the latest software drivers with noise reduction technology and up to 92% OpenGL performance boost
AMD Noise Suppression technology has already blown the curtain when a video of the feature went live before AMD itself released it. Now the red team has officially unveiled its Radeon Software drivers supporting this technology and aiming to become a direct competitor to NVIDIA’s RTX Voice, which works on both GeForce RTX and GTX products, while noise suppression works with the Radeon RX 5000 series and above works.
AMD Noise Suppression reduces background noise from your surroundings, providing greater clarity and improved concentration, whether you’re focused on an important meeting or focused on a competitive game. Using a real-time deep learning algorithm to reduce background noise, this new feature works for both your input and output devices in any AMD-powered system, removing unwanted background noise picked up on your microphone or someone else’s device became.
To find AMD Noise Suppression, make sure you’re using the latest version of AMD software, click the Settings icon, and navigate to the Audio & Video tab. Under Audio Settings you will see AMD Noise Suppression; All you then have to do is click on the slider and then select either your input/output device or both, depending on which device you want to enable the feature on. From there, open your games or communication apps like Microsoft Teams, Discord or Slack to name a few and select “AMD Streaming Audio Device” for your input/output to enjoy AMD Noise Suppression.
AMD “Noise Suppression” technology aims to let users communicate undisturbed. This is achieved through intelligent audio enhancement supported by real-time AI or deep learning algorithms. The technology allows noise adjustments in both directions, for both the input and output source. One of AMD’s main goals was to ensure its features would be widely used, and the company has plans to get noise cancellation working in various apps and games.
AMD states in the video that the technology is available now, so it looks like the feature will be available right at launch. AMD will definitely provide detailed instructions on how to enable Noise Suppression technology, but it should include a few simple setup steps. Anyway, I’m definitely excited to see AMD’s software suite expanding with technologies similar to those of the competition.
In addition to noise reduction, the new software drivers also deliver up to a 92% performance boost in OpenGL titles like Minecraft. AMD hasn’t mentioned any OpenGL titles other than Minecraft, but it’s likely that this is the only instance where the red team has seen the biggest performance boost with their new drivers. If you’re playing older OpenGL games, you’ll likely see some good performance increases, but not as strong as the 92% AMD touted for Minecraft.
In addition, AMD has also expanded and optimized its Radeon Super Resolution technology, which now works with Radeon RX 5000 and RX 6000 series notebook GPUs. The company has also made additions to its Radeon Boost VRS support roster, which now adds the latest titles like VALORANT, Elden Ring, and Resident Evil Village.
