AMD has officially launched its latest software drivers that add support for noise reduction technology and deliver up to 92% more OpenGL performance.
AMD officially launches the latest software drivers with noise reduction technology and up to 92% OpenGL performance improvement
AMD Noise Suppression technology already broke the curtains when a video of the feature went live ahead of its release by AMD itself. Now the red team has officially introduced its Radeon Software drivers that add support for the said technology and aims to be a direct competitor to NVIDIA’s RTX Voice which will work on both GeForce RTX and GTX products, while noise cancellation will work with Radeon RX 5000- series and above.
AMD Noise Suppression reduces background noise from your environment, providing greater clarity and improved concentration whether you’re focused on an important meeting or locked in 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 on any AMD powered system, removing unwanted background noise captured on your microphone or from someone else’s device .
To find AMD noise cancellation, make sure you are using the latest version of AMD software, click the Settings icon and go to the Audio and Video tab. Under Audio Settings, you’ll see AMD Noise Canceling; all you need to do is click on the slider and then choose your input/output device or both, depending on which device you want the feature to be enabled. 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.
The AMD “Noise Suppression” technology is intended to allow users to communicate without distraction. This is achieved through Intelligent Audio Enhancement powered by real-time AI or Deep Learning algorithms. The technology allows for noise adjustments in both directions, for both the input and output source. One of AMD’s main goals has been to ensure its features are widely used, and the company plans to make noise cancellation work 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 when it launches. AMD will certainly provide a detailed guide to enabling the “Noise Suppression” technology, but it should include a few simple steps to get you set up. I’m certainly excited to see AMD’s software suite expanded with technologies similar to its competitor.
In addition to noise reduction, the new software drivers also deliver a performance improvement of up to 92% in OpenGL titles such as Minecraft. AMD hasn’t mentioned any other OpenGL titles besides Minecraft, but it’s likely that this is the one case where the red team saw the biggest performance boost with their new drivers. If you happen to play older OpenGL games, you’ll probably see some decent performance gains, but not quite as hefty as the 92% touted by AMD for Minecraft.
Furthermore, 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 list, which now adds the latest titles such as VALORANT, Elden Ring, and Resident Evil Village.
