In a piece exploring what the NVIDIA broadcast can do, we praised its ability to remove noise for being “impressively adept” at taking out everything but your voice. Now AMD launched a similar tool for computers powered by its chips, and it could vastly improve your gaming and livestreaming experience or lead to cleaner recordings. AMDs Noise Canceling tool can reduce background chatter and noises in real time by using deep learning algorithm.

The function works for both input and output devices, meaning it can suppress not only noise captured on your microphone, but also noise coming from someone else. It can help you stay focused when you’re in a meeting or attending online classes, for example, as it can block out the sounds of someone’s barking dog or crying baby in the background.

That said, noise cancellation is only available for computers with Ryzen 5000 series and newer processors, as well as systems with Radeon RX 6000 series and newer graphics cards. If you know that your computer has the components needed to access the feature, you should upgrade to the latest version of AMD software before going to the Settings page.

Under Audio Settings in the Audio & Video tab, you will see a toggle to enable the feature. You can also choose to enable it for your input or output device or both at the same time. The next time you launch a game or a communication app, such as Microsoft Teams or Slack, you can enjoy the benefits of the noise cancellation tool as long as you select the “AMD Streaming Device” option as your input and/or output device.
