Valve rolled out Steam Audio 2.0 beta version 13, this release adds support for the AMD TrueAudio Next technology. This is a software library that enables game developers to offload several spatial audio processing tasks from the CPU to the GPU. This enhances performance and can give you some more frames per second. Full details at Steam.
What is TrueAudio Next?
AMD TrueAudio Next (TAN) is a software library that implements high-performance convolution – a filtering technique – for audio data on supported GPUs. TrueAudio Next also provides a feature called Resource Reservation, which allows developers to dedicate a portion of the GPU's computational resources to be spent on time-sensitive tasks such as audio processing. Here is a brief explanation of both of these high-level features of TAN.
