AMD Driver 22.7.1 features significant OpenGL optimizations and support for Windows 11 22H2.

Radeon graphics users are in for a major driver update, and today AMD released the Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1 driver. It contains support for the upcoming major Windows 11 22H2 update, feature enhancements, long awaited OpenGL optimizations, and more.

To start with the biggest change made to this driver, AMD has officially released the OpenGL performance updates it started testing last month with a preview release. This time around, the company only showed performance results for one OpenGL-based game, Minecraft, but the community testing results should give a bigger picture in the future when the driver is official.

According to AMD, Minecraft performance increased by 79% with the high-end RX 6950XT GPU and up to 75% with the budget RX 6400 GPU. Fabulous preset.

In addition to stable updating to Windows 11 version 22H2 on Radeon graphics, the driver also adds support for Microsoft Agility SDK Release 1.602 and 1.606, including Microsoft Shader Model 6.7.

At the same time, the company is introducing AMD Noise Suppression as a new voice input cleaning feature available in the driver suite that will compete with Nvidia’s RTX Voice. “AMD Noise Suppression reduces background audio noise from the environment with a real-time deep learning algorithm, delivering greater clarity and improved focus, whether you’re focused on an important meeting or staying locked into a competitive game,” explains the company.

Other changes made to the driver include support for Radeon Boost for Elden Ring, Resident Evil Village, and Valorant, as well as enhanced support for Radeon Super Resolution on AMD laptops with hybrid graphics, as well as games that use borderless windowed modes.

Here are the fixed issues in this driver:

  • Slower than expected Folding@home™ compute performance with OpenCL™ API on select AMD graphics products such as Radeon™ RX 6800.
  • Auto Undervolt can disable the Zero RPM fan function.
  • Hitman 3™ may freeze when quickly switching between windows in full screen exclusive mode.
  • Video scaling in browsers looks blurry with some AMD graphics products such as Radeon® RX 6900 XT Graphics.
  • Extended sync may cause games to freeze up to 15 frames per second when playing video on extended monitors.

Known issues:

  • When playing Call of Duty®: Warzone™ on a Caldera card with some AMD graphics products such as Radeon™ RX 6900 XT Graphics, a hang may occur.
  • Radeon™ Super Resolution may not work after changing resolution or HDR settings in games such as Nioh™ 2.
  • VR headsets may flicker with some AMD graphics products such as the Radeon™ RX 6800 XT Graphics.
  • GPU usage may get stuck at 100% in Radeon performance after closing games on some AMD graphics products such as the Radeon™ 570.
  • The display may flicker black during video playback and gaming on some AMD graphics products such as the Radeon™ RX 6700 XT.
  • Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to appear when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may experience issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.

New AMD software: Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1 is compatible with Windows 11 version 22H2, Windows 10 64-bit version 1809 and later operating systems. The driver can be downloaded through the Radeon Settings app or via a direct link in the official release notes here .
