What’s coming in VoiceFX v0.3.0?

With what is most likely the final beta version of VoiceFX 0.3.0 being released, it’s time to talk about all the improvements and changes that VoiceFX had to go through to get here. Let’s take a look at all the new and upgraded things in it. Continue reading

A Review: Gainward RTX 3090 Phantom

Around the end of last week, my Alphacool waterblock decided that it was time to kill the NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition it was placed on. That was the day I learned that burning PCB and plastic smells the same as coal – and that I should probably replace my smoke detectors since they didn’t go off at all. That meant I needed a new GPU, and after a bit of search for actually available GPUs, I ended up going for the 3090 cards – nobody apparently has 3080s, only 3070s and 3090s. The card I ended up with… Continue reading

NVIDIA RTX 30xx: How to make everything else obsolete in one generation

NVIDIA certainly wasn’t idle in the last two years, that much is clear. Their jump from 12nm to 8nm should set the average standard for what we should expect from moving nodes while also improving on the generation. This generational leap is what we should have seen from the 20xx series, which now seems like overpriced junk – so sorry for anyone who bought them in the last 6 months and can’t return them. Let’s go into a bit of history and detail. The AMD side: Shrinking 14nm to 7nm Three years ago in 2017, AMD RTG tried to even… Continue reading

The Art of encoding with NVIDIA NVENC

Streaming with more than one PC has been the leader in H.264 encoding for years, but NVIDIAs Turing and Ampere generation has put a significant dent into that lead. The new generation of GPUs with the brand new encoder brought comparable quality x264 medium – if you can find a GPU that is. Let’s take a look at what’s needed to set up your stream for massively improved quality. Continue reading

RTX Voice in my VST-compatible Audio Software? It’s more likely than you think!

If you haven’t heard of RTX Voice, it’s basically “Krisp” in Discord but with less shitty audio quality. It’s based on Tensor, which can fall back onto CUDA hardware, but runs best on RTX due to the hardware accelerated Tensor cores on it. You can find a guide on how to set it up here on Nvidias own website. Continue reading

How to use the new Nvidia Face Tracking Filter in StreamFX

A short while ago I teased a new filter live on stream, and now that the Nvidia counterpart for it is publicly released I can finally go into more detail on what it does, why it is useful, and how you too can now use it on your Nvidia GeForce RTX hardware. Continue reading
