AMD has released new drivers that include AI-powered noise suppression

AMD has released the most recent version of its AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition suite, which includes the most recent CPU and GPU drivers. The introduction of AMD Noise Suppression is one of the most notable changes in version 22.7.1.

This is a tool for removing background noise from your microphone, so you can be heard more clearly while streaming or during video calls and meetings. The feature employs a deep learning algorithm to determine what constitutes background noise and attempts to eliminate it while retaining the ability to hear your voice. This is very similar to Nvidia’s RTX Voice tool, which was later expanded into RTX Broadcast, which includes other AI-powered video and audio features.

The most notable difference is that AMD Noise Suppression is directly included in the AMD Software suite, so you don’t need to install a separate app to enable it; simply update to the latest version of the AMD drivers. This can be found in the AMD Software suite’s settings section, under the Audio & Video sub-category. The feature does, however, have minimum requirements: an AMD Ryzen 5000 series processor or newer, or Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs or newer.

Aside from the new Noise Suppression feature, the latest AMD drivers are the first to officially support Windows 11 version 22H2, the upcoming major Windows 11 update that adds and removes a slew of features. It also includes some Agility SDK updates and new Vulkan extensions.

There are also new Radeon Boost optimizations, including support for Variable Rate Shading in games like Valorant and Elden Ring, which results in improved performance in those titles. Furthermore, Radeon Super Resolution is now supported on discrete Radeon RX 5000 and 6000 series GPUs in laptops with AMD Ryzen processors and hybrid graphics. Radeon Super Resolution is an in-driver version of FidelityFX Super Resolution that allows almost any game to be rendered at a lower resolution and then upscaled to the native resolution of the display using machine learning algorithms. Until now, Radeon Super Resolution was only available on systems with discrete graphics or notebooks with a MUX switch that can turn off the integrated graphics entirely. This is no longer a requirement.

AMD’s “Noise Suppression” technology aims to allow users to communicate without interruptions. This will be accomplished via Intelligent Audio enhancement, which will be powered by real-time AI or Deep Learning algorithms. The technology will allow noise adjustments in both directions, for both the input and output sources. AMD’s main goal has been to ensure that its features are widely used, and the company intends to make Noise Suppression work across multiple apps and games.

AMD states in the video that the technology is now available, implying that the feature will be available as soon as it is released. AMD will undoubtedly provide a detailed guide for enabling “Noise Suppression” technology, but it should only take a few simple steps to get you up and running. I, for one, am very interested in seeing AMD’s Software suite expand with technologies similar to its competitor.

In addition to Noise Suppression, the new Software Drivers improve OpenGL performance by up to 92 percent in games like Minecraft. AMD hasn’t mentioned any other OpenGL titles besides Minecraft, but it’s likely that it’s the only case where the red team saw the greatest performance boost from their new drivers. If you play older OpenGL games, you will likely see some good performance boosts, but not as significant as AMD’s 92 percent boost for Minecraft.

Additionally, AMD has extended and optimised its Radeon Super Resolution technology, which now supports Radeon RX 5000 and RX 6000 series notebook GPUs. The company has also added new titles to its Radeon Boost VRS support list, including VALORANT, Elden Ring, and Resident Evil Village.

In many ways, AMD Noise Suppression is similar to Nvidia’s Broadcast noise removal feature in that it uses a machine learning algorithm to remove ambient or otherwise unwanted noise from your mic input while retaining as much clarity as possible in your voice. That means less distracting audio and clearer communications, which is a very useful feature to have.

AMD Noise Suppression also works on audio outputs, so you can clear your friend’s mic for them—we’ve all got that one Discord friend who leaves the TV on in the background.

As the name implies, this is a tool for removing background noise from the microphone, allowing you to be heard more clearly during broadcasts, video calls, and meetings. The feature employs a deep learning algorithm to detect and eliminate background noise while allowing your voice to continue. This is very similar to Nvidia’s RTX Voice tool, which was later expanded to RTX Streaming, which includes other AI-powered video and audio features.

The most notable difference is that AMD Noise Suppression is built right into the AMD suite of software, so you don’t need to install a separate app to enable it; simply update to the most recent version of AMD drivers. This can be found in the AMD suite of software’s Settings section, under the File My voice & video subclassification. However, the feature has minimal requirements: an AMD Ryzen 5000 series processor or later, or Radeon RX 6000 or later GPUs are required.
