How to Install and Setup Nvidia RTX Voice on GTX GPUs

How to install Nvidia RTX Voice on GTX GPUs

Do you want to eliminate background noise from your voice chats and audio/video recordings?. Then, RTX Voice App can help you with that. It was designed primarily for NVIDIA RTX 20-series GPUs. By reducing unwanted background noise, it improves audio communication. AI is used in the app to intelligently modify noise. As per NVIDIA, this app uses Tensor cores built into its RTX GPUs to accomplish this feature. There is a file tweak that enables users to run RTX voice on non-RTX GPUs. However, you do not have to do that. The GeForce GTX GPU now officially supports RTX Voice, since NVIDIA patched it to run on the GPU. Yes, you can now use Nvidia RTX Voice on GTX GPUs Easily.

What is RTX Voice, and why is it so important?

The RTX Voice App will be a game-changer if you’re recording audio or live streaming, or even chatting on Zoom or Discord. It does eliminate background noise completely and focuses only on the main audio. Particularly it cuts out keyboard (mechanical keyboard) sounds, background fan noise, and all kinds of ambient noise from your surroundings. All possible because of NVIDIA’s AI capabilities. I especially use RTX Voice when I am recording something through OBS Studio.

That’s not all, RTX Voice also lets you configure output devices as well. So it works amazingly well with incoming audio. For instance, If you’re on a video call and you’re noticing a lot of audio disturbance from another person’s side. Then, by turning on RTX voice for the output device you can remove background noise from incoming video. Basically, If you’re attending lots of meetings these days at home, and if you have an NVIDIA Graphics Card. RTX Voice will be a magical experience for you then.

The RTX Voice app works with these apps.

RTX Voice App works flawlessly with streaming services like Streamlabs OBS, OBS Studio, Twitch Studio, and Discord. However, it is not limited to these clients only. You can use RTX Voice in almost all popular video calling services like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Slack, Skype, and WebEx. RTX Voice App also works with video games as well. I have tried it in Apex Legends and Valorant. So if a game does support voice chat, then you can configure RTX voice for it.
