Latest AMD updates: we now have the right to AI noise suppression
AMD wants to improve the audio quality of video calls. To do this, the graphics card manufacturer today released an improved version of its AMD software: Adrenalin Edition which contains the latest drivers for its CPUs and GPUs.
Numbering 22.7.1, the update marks the launch of the AMD Noise Suppression feature. The latter has been developed to offer users of devices with AMD processors the possibility of effectively suppressing background noise from their microphone during recordings.
A feature similar to Nvidia’s RTX Voice
AMD Noise Suppression is a tool based on a deep learning algorithm. This allows it to first intelligently determine what can be considered background noise in order to eliminate it later. Throughout the process, everything is done to maintain the quality of the recorded voice.
As such, it can be said that AMD’s new feature is similar to Nvidia’s RTX Voice which is now known as RTX Broadcast. The main difference between the two tools is that AMD’s noise suppression option is integrated directly into AMD’s software suite. To benefit from it, the user does not need to install any third-party application. All he has to do is install the latest drivers from AMD and he’s done.
The drivers in question are available in the Audio & Video subcategory of AMD’s software suite settings. However, they are not intended for all AMD processors and graphics cards. You need at least an AMD Ryzen 5000 series or a Radeon RX 6000 series GPU.

Other options provided by the latest AMD drivers
You might think that the new update is only limited to the deletion functionality. However, the latest AMD drivers are officially the first to support version 22H2 of Windows 11. By the way, it should be remembered that this is the next major update of Windows 11. It should bring new features , Agility SDK updates and new Vulkan extensions.
On the other hand, it should be pointed out that AMD software version 22.7.1 offers new optimizations for Radeon Boost, with support for the Rate Shading variable on games like Valorant and Elden Ring. This guarantees better performance for CPUs and GPUs running one of these games.
It also enables Radeon RX 5000 and 6000 series discrete GPUs to support Radeon Super Resolution. The same option is now offered to laptops that feature AMD Ryzen processors with hybrid graphics.
For all intents and purposes, Radeon Super Resolution is a version of FidelityFX Super Resolution that initially takes almost any game to a lower resolution. In a second step, it adapts them to the screen of use thanks to automatic learning algorithms.
