An official alternative to NVIDIA RTX Voice is seemingly on the way for AMD users.
As revealed in a teaser video that AMD accidentally published a bit too early yesterday, “Noise Suppression” is a new feature that leverages AI and deep learning to reduce unwanted sounds. The video has since been set to private, but a copy of the teaser with additional details can be found below.
AMD users will be able to find the new Noise Suppression feature in a new tab that will be introduced in a future Adrenalin update, according to details shared by crazydaveyboy. Users can also expect a new virtual audio device to be installed as part of the process.
AMD’s Noise Suppression feature is presumably its direct answer to RTX Voice, an AI-powered tool that NVIDIA launched in early 2020 to help users suppress background noise. Here’s how the company has described it:
NVIDIA RTX Voice is a new plugin that leverages NVIDIA RTX GPUs and their AI capabilities to remove distracting background noise from your broadcasts, voice chats, and remote video conferencing meetings. This allows users to “go live” or join a meeting without having to worry about unwanted sounds like loud keyboard typing or other ambient noise in noisy environments. RTX Voice also suppresses background noise from players in loud environments, making incoming audio easier to understand.
NVIDIA RTX Voice was originally launched as a plugin, but it can now be found as part of NVIDIA’s Broadcast app. The app allows users to transform “any room into a home studio” with a range of features that include virtual backgrounds, auto framing, and video noise removal, in addition to noise and echo removal.
