AMD delivers Noise Suppression and huge OpenGL improvements with their latest GPU drivers

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

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

Below we have included the release notes for AMD's AMD Software 22.7.1 GPU drivers.
