AMD has released the Adrenaline 22.7.1 driver update for eligible systems. The update is a big one, bringing with it AMD Noise Suppression, Radeon Super Resolution to more notebook GPUs, Radeon Boost to more titles, and an incredible bump in OpenGL performance.

The Adrenaline 22.7.1 driver update is now available to owners of Radeon GPUs. The update brings with it AMD Noise Suppression and an immense increase in OpenGL performance. OpenGL titles like Minecraft enjoy an up to 92% FPS bump over the previous Adrenaline 22.6.1 version.

For the uninitiated, AMD Noise Suppression is Team Red’s answer to Nvidia’s RTX Voice noise cancellation tech. Similar to RTX Voice, AMD Noise Suppression reduces background noise during recording and calls. With the feature turned on, the microphone will pick up less noise.

Unlike RTX Voice, Noise Suppression relies heavily on the CPU. So, the feature only works for users with an AMD Ryzen 5000 series processor or better.

As mentioned above, Adrenaline 22.7.1 brings a tremendous boost in OpenGL performance for AMD Radeon graphics cards. Per AMD’s internal testing, Minecraft showed a 92% improvement in FPS when running at 4K on a Ryzen 7 5800X3D and an RX 6800 XT. Similarly, the RX 6950 XT and the RX 6750 XT enjoyed an 89% and 90% bump respectively.

The Adrenaline 22.7.1 driver update also sees AMD bringing Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) to Radeon RX 5000 and 6000 series GPUs in AMD Ryzen-based laptops with hybrid graphic solutions. Hybrid graphics refers to systems without a MUX switch. In such systems, the integrated GPU rather than the discreet board produces a display output.

Finally, AMD has also enabled Radeon Boost in Elden Ring, Resident Evil Village, and VALORANT with the newest update. Radeon Boost uses Variable Rate Shading (VRS) to lower the resolution dynamically during scenes with fast character movement to preserve FPS.
