Expect Huge Performance Gains in OpenGL Titles

AMD offers noise suppression and huge OpenGL improvements with its latest GPU drivers

AMD has just released its 22.7.1 drivers for its Radeon graphics cards, adding game-specific optimizations to many games, support for several new Vulkan API extensions, and support for a new audio enhancement called AMD Noise Suppression.

One of the biggest changes in AMD’s 22.7.1 driver is its new OpenGL optimizations, which promise gamers up to 92% performance boost in games like Minecraft (OpenGL version) at 4K. These optimizations should impact all OpenGL titles, making AMD Software 22.7.1 a must-have download for older PC gamers.

Below we have included AMD Software 22.7.1 GPU Drivers Release Notes from AMD.
