Today, who does not use a voice program on their PC? Whether to communicate with your friends while you play or to hold business meetings or conferences, programs such as Skype, Zoom, Discord or even Open Broadcaster Software to do streaming they have become commonplace on any PC. NVIDIA’s RTX Voice uses an Artificial Intelligence component to take advantage of the power of the graphics card to clean the audio signal and allow intelligent noise cancellation at the software level.
RTX Voice, now compatible with (almost) any NVIDIA GPU
NVIDIA should probably consider removing the RTX prefix from its RTX Voice suite; Initially, NVIDIA announced it as an exclusive feature of its RTX GPUs due to its processing capabilities of Artificial intelligence, and that led to think that RTX Voice used the Tensor cores for these operations. However, very soon modifications began to appear that allowed its use in GTX graphics, which pointed to a processing with the CUDA cores and not with the Tensor Cores.
After these unofficial “mods”, NVIDIA has made the decision to officially extend the support for this software to other non-RTX graphics cards, and now it goes from the new RTX 30 Series to the GTX 600 Series, that is, any graphics card of The brand supports 410.18 or newer drivers. So, if you want to take advantage of the advantages that this software provides and you have an NVIDIA GTX 600 Series or higher graphic, you can do it now and without the need to introduce patches or modifications, since now simply by having the 410.18 or newer drivers you can do it.
The software you can download for free on the manufacturer’s website and installing it is as simple as following the usual wizard in which you don’t need to change any parameters. After installing it, a screen will appear that will ask us to select the audio devices we want to use, and here we can also select if we want to activate or deactivate the noise cancellation functionality for both incoming and outgoing audio.
We have to say that we tested it ourselves at the time, and the software did not work as well as expected, although it is true that for now it is a Beta version that is in the testing phase. In any case, uninstalling it is as simple as going to Windows Programs and Features, looking for RTX Voice and selecting uninstall (you will have to restart the computer, yes).
Also remember that for now the list of supported programs includes: OBS Studio, XSplit Broadcaster, XSplit GameCaster, Twitch Studio, Discord, Google Chrome, Battle.net Chat, WebEx, Skype, Zoom, Slack and Steam Chat.
