The recently released graphics driver package for Radeon graphics cards includes the new AMD Noise Suppression feature. Officially, it’s only supported by RDNA 2 accelerators, but enthusiasts have released an unofficial driver version that adds noise reduction support to older AMD graphics cards.

AMD Noise Suppression is based on an AI algorithm that reduces ambient noise for incoming and outgoing audio signals. In essence, the feature represents an alternative to NVIDIA RTX Voice technology, which in turn is powered by a much larger number of GeForce accelerators, including the very old GeForce GTX 600 models.In addition, NVIDIA already has RTX Voice in its broadcast application integrated for streaming. AMD lags behind in this regard.

According to AMD, Noise Suppression is currently only officially supported by Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards, but enthusiasts have released an unofficial version of the NimeZ driver based on Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1 with Noise Suppression for older Radeon graphics cards.

The NimeZ driver is designed for accelerators based on Terascale, GCN, Polaris, Vega and Navi architectures and will be released in three separate distributions. As a rule, the unofficial driver is updated monthly. AMD Noise Suppression feature has been added only for the third group of accelerators (Polaris, Vega and Navi).

Some NimeZ users have noticed that when using Noise Suppression on older generation graphics cards, the audio sometimes hisses. Before installing, you should understand that the software may not be suitable for everyone. It should also be noted that this is a modified driver, which will void the user’s warranty if the accelerator fails. Downloading and using graphics card drivers from unknown sources always involves certain risks.
