Noise Suppression, AMD mistakenly anticipates a new upcoming technology
A video accidentally posted on YouTube (at 240p) and then removed anticipates the next arrival of AMD Noise Suppressiona technology that will be integrated into the AMD Software Adrenalin drivers and that, through real-time algorithms (AI), aims to cancel background noise from the audio pipeline to ensure crystal clear voice communications.
Technology – on paper – very closely resembles RTX Voicea solution that during the initial period of the pandemic NVIDIA proposed to owners of GeForce RTX GPUs, subsequently expanding compatibility to GTX models without Tensor core.
The goal of the technology was to improve the quality of communications for those who, from one day to the next, found themselves at home in smart working without quality microphones and headphones, often forced to make work video calls using the integrated microphones in notebooks. NVIDIA was already working on the technology, but the pandemic prompted it to quickly release a beta of the program.
RTX Voice works swith both input and output devices, and so will Noise Suppression. AMD’s solution will be manageable from the Audio and Video card of the AMD Software Adrenalin drivers and therefore will not require a separate software download. It is currently unclear when the technology will actually become available, but the accidental publication of the video suggests short timelines.
