AMD has officially launched its latest software drivers which support noise suppression technology and improve OpenGL performance by 92%.
AMD Noise Suppression
The technology of noise cancellation from AMD has already made noise when a video of the feature was released before it was published by AMD itself. Today the red team officially introduced their software drivers for Radeon which add support for said technology and aim to be a direct competitor to NVIDIA’s RTX Voice which works on GeForce RTX and GTX products while Noise Suppression will work with Radeon RX 5000 graphics cards and above.
AMD Noise Suppression reduces background noise from your surroundings, providing greater clarity and focus whether you’re focused on an important meeting or a competitive game. Using a real-time deep learning algorithm to reduce audio 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 on someone else’s device.
To find AMD’s noise canceling feature, make sure you have the latest version of AMD software:
- click the Settings icon, and navigate to the Audio & Video tab.
- Under Audio Settings, you’ll see AMD Noise Cancellation; all you have to do is click the slider and then choose 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 such as Microsoft Teams, Discord, or Slack, to name a few, and select “AMD Streaming Audio Device” for your input/output to take advantage of the AMD noise cancellation.
AMD technology “Noise Suppression” intended to allow users to communicate without being distracted. This is possible thanks to the intelligent improvement of the audio which will be fed by algorithms ofReal-time AI or Deep Learning. The technology will allow noise adjustments in both directions, for the input and the output source. One of AMD’s main goals has been to ensure its features are widely used, and the company plans to make Noise Suppression work across various apps and games.

AMD states in the video that the technology is available now, so it looks like the feature will be available as soon as it launches. AMD will certainly provide a detailed guide to enabling Noise Suppression technology but it should involve a few simple steps to get you set up.
Up to 92% increase in OpenGL titles
In addition to noise suppression, the new software drivers also offer increased 92% performance in OpenGL titles such as Minecraft. AMD didn’t mention any other OpenGL titles outside of Minecraft, but it’s likely this is the only instance where the red team saw the biggest performance boost with their new drivers. If you’re playing older OpenGL games, you’re likely to see a nice performance boost.
AMD has also extended and optimized its Radeon Super Resolution technology which now works with laptop GPUs Radeon RX 5000 and RX 6000 series.
The company has also added the latest titles such as VALORANT, Elden Ring, and Resident Evil Village to its Radeon Boost VRS support roster. To get the latest 22.7.1 software drivers from AMD, you can go to the official driver page here.
