NVIDIA RTX Voice Now Officially Supported on Non-RTX Cards

NVIDIA should probably start thinking about removing the RTX moniker from its RTX Voice suite, the (supposedly) AI-based audio noise-cancellation software the company launched about this time last year. At the time, NVIDIA announced it as an exclusive feature for their RTX GPUs, due to their AI-processing capabilities - and that led everyone to think RTX Voice employed the in-chip Tensor cores for leveraged AI operation. However, soon enough, mods started to appear that allowed GTX graphics cards - going back at least as much as the "hot-oven Fermi" in unofficial support - and that pointed towards a CUDA-based processing solution.

It appears that NVIDIA has now decided to officially extend support for the RTX Voice software to other, non-RTX graphics cards from the latest RTX 30-cards down to their 600-series (essentially any card supported under Nvidia's 410.18 driver or newer). So if you were hoping to leverage the software and wanted to do it officially, in a pre-RTX 20-series graphics card, with no patches - now you can. You can check out our RTX Voice review, where our very own Inle declared it to be "like magic".

Cool, still not going to use this or any software package from NVIDIA that isn't solely their graphics driver & control panel.

is there a way just to install the driver and not the app?
From the installer, nope. Maybe by disassembling the installer, I guess.

The app is required to change input/output. Nvidia takes over the main audio driver and requires you to switch inputs in their app.

They could perhaps make it less resource-intensive. 20 process Chrome vs idle RTX Voice:


edit; after 20 minutes it sits at 33MB.
