AMD has released a new Adrenalin Edition driver package, and it’s a significant one.
A major highlight of AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1 is the inclusion of a new Noise Suppression feature, something that AMD accidentally let slip last week. Red team’s driver notes can confirm that this feature reduces background audio noise with the help of a real-time deep learning algorithm, giving users “greater clarity and improved concentration” during work or play.
A separate blog post shared on AMD’s community site offers further specifics, including how Radeon users can find it in the latest version of AMD Software.
AMD Noise Suppression reduces background audio noise from your surrounding environment, providing greater clarity and improved concentration whether you are focused on an important meeting or staying locked-in on a competitive game. By using a real-time, deep learning algorithm to reduce background audio noise, this new feature works for both your input and output devices across any AMD-powered system, removing unwanted background noise captured on your microphone or from someone else’s device.
To find AMD Noise Suppression, make sure you are on 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 need to do then is to click the slider and then choose either 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 such as Microsoft Teams, Discord, or Slack to name a few, and select ‘AMD Streaming Audio Device’ for your input/output to enjoy AMD Noise Suppression.
