For PCs with GeForce graphics, NVIDIA has a Broadcast app that, among other things, uses machine learning to get rid of background noise on your microphone. People with AMD graphics can finally join in on the fun.
AMD graphics cards filter background noise
The latest version of AMD’s Adrenalin software has a new feature called “AMD Noise Suppression.” This feature filters out background noise from an audio input by using machine learning on your graphics hardware. AMD said, “This new feature uses a real-time, deep learning algorithm to reduce background audio noise.” It works for both your input and output devices on any AMD-powered system, removing unwanted background noise captured on your microphone or from someone else’s device. “
Some chat services, like Microsoft Teams and Discord, have a background noise filter built in, but AMD’s solution (like NVIDIA Broadcast) works with everything that uses your microphone. Since it uses a hardware-accelerated algorithm on the system graphics, the results should also be better, and fewer system resources should be used than with other noise-canceling features.

The above demo from Kephren on YouTube shows that the filter does remove sounds like fans, keyboard typing, and mouse clicks, just like it said it would. But it does make your voice worse in a noticeable way. This also happens with Nvidia Broadcast, but the voice quality seems to be a bit better with Nvidia’s solution.
AMD Noise Suppression needs a Ryzen 6000 series processor with built-in graphics or a desktop graphics card from the RX 6000 series. That rules out a lot of PCs, but at least graphics cards are easy to find now, which wasn’t always the case in the last two years.
