Nvidia’s RTX Voice feature, which eliminates background noise that would otherwise penetrate your microphone, debuted exclusively on expensive RTX graphics cards. My colleague Taylor Lyles wrote back in September 2020 that the company fixed the RTX Voice software to run on older GeForce GTX, Quadro or Titan graphics processors back in September 2020, but today I was just reminded of this. Tom’s Hardware.
Given that the latest RTX 30 series graphics cards are expensive and hard to find (like almost any capable graphics processor), this is a good way to extend the usefulness of older hardware if you don’t want to upgrade yet. If your video card works with the Nvidia 410.18 driver, models up to the GTX 600 series released in 2012 will be able to run this feature after downloading it. Here is the download link.
Once you’ve set this up, check out a guide written by my colleague John Porter that goes through the steps to adjust the sound settings to take advantage of RTX Voice.
Correction: This article was originally written as if this feature was new to non-RTX GPUs. Nvidia has confirmed to The Verge that it will be available from the end of September 2020 Nvidia debuted on Broadcast. We regret the mistake.
