What happened now? The leaked video indicates that AMD may soon release a noise reduction tool that sounds just like Nvidia’s. This may indicate that AMD is preparing to bring AI features to its consumer hardware, but it’s not enough to determine if the company has an answer for Nvidia’s Tensor Cores.

On Thursday, AMD posted a video on YouTube detailing AMD’s new Noise Suppression feature. company quickly installed private video, but not before someone saves a low-res copy, repost it on the AMD subreddit before being removed again. AMD is clearly not ready to talk about the new feature, but it is very similar to RTX Voice.

Came out In 2020, Nvidia’s RTX Voice mutes all sounds except the speaker’s voice during a call or voice chat, integrating with many gaming and productivity apps. The AMD Noise Suppression video, which is currently still available to watch, describes similar functionality using a deep learning algorithm and support for various applications and games. AMD hires computer and deep learning in their Instinct server accelerators, but the Noise Suppression video shows someone working on a laptop in a home office, suggesting consumer-level usage.

This announcement is the second recent announcement regarding AMD AI features. In late June, a repository update mentioned matrix instructions for the company’s upcoming RDNA 3 graphics cards. One prominent leaker believes this means RDNA3 will use AI-accelerated image reconstruction, similar to how Nvidia’s RTX GPUs use DLSS.

However, AI noise reduction does not necessarily require hardware like the Tensor Core RTX cards needed for DLSS. Older Nvidia GTX GPUs can also use RTX voice despite the name.

According to AMD’s video, noise reduction will be part of the Adrenalin graphics driver software driver. The teaser ends with “available now,” indicating that the feature’s launch may be imminent.
