Two years ago, when covid hit hard, NVIDIA came up with the RTX Voice just in time for the lockdowns when employees were encouraged to work from home and attend meetings remotely. This is the time when audio/video recording devices were the most in demand and consequently their prices were skyrocketing.
Most of the people who didn’t invest in new devices or didn’t get the time to do so, were left with low-quality built-in microphones. Seems like NVIDIA had things under control, as it released the beta for RTX Voice, a technology purely intended towards getting you more and more clarity on the voice.
RTX Voice can be used for both input as well as output devices, primarily focusing on noise suppression. The RTX Voice makes use of an artificial intelligence algorithm which can cancel even the sound of the hair dryer.
AMD is also working on a new technology along the same lines. In one of the recent videos which appear to have been accidentally posted by AMD on YouTube, we see the mention of Noise Suppression technology. The video was instantly taken down, but the damage had been done already as many Reddit users already copied it in no time.
The video tells us that Noise Suppression is going to take after the same technology which NVIDIA used. Its main function is going to be the same; to cancel noise for both input and output devices with the help of Artificial Intelligence. The technology is going to be added to the Audio and Video tab in the AMD Software Adrenalin Driver. The Noise Suppression is going to be part of the AMD software stack, bringing in more features on one single app.
We are expecting the technology to be available as soon as the new driver is released since the video clearly states that it is ‘available now’.
AMD's making an RMA Voice competitor. Basically a thing within Radeon settings that does what Nvidias thing does. Use DL to cancel background voice. It's privated now but that's what it was. pic.twitter.com/iQOyKJNdZQ
