AMD Reveals TrueAudio Technology To Improve Gaming Audio

/ 3 years ago


AMD revealed a new technology at its GPU 14 press event which it will be launching for three of its new GPUs. The AMD R9-290X, R9-290 and R7-260X GPUs will all support AMD’s new TrueAudio technology.


AMD claims that its programmable audio engine will revolutionise gaming audio by giving game developers more flexibility to tweak and tune their audio to a new level.


AMD’s TrueAudio offers up more audio channels than conventional audio engines with increased accuracy.


The TrueAudio technology enables directional audio over any output….5.1/7.1/Stereo and so on.


Only three graphics cards support the new AMD TrueAudio technology – presumably these are the GPUs based on AMD’s new GCN 2.0 architecture while the cards that do not support it are presumably the rebranded cards from the HD 7000 series.


AMD will be working with a wide range of companies in the audio and game industries to maximise the success of the new TrueAudio technology.
