first id like to thank you for your work again, i was here year ago when i first build my pc and didnt realize AMD GPUs have a bad Encoder for twitch. You helped me a lot and i did a lot myself (mainly with purchasing higher end parts so the performance loss wouldnt be too great).
My specs are Radeon 6900XT
Ryzen 9 5950x
3800 cl14 RAM
I play warzone and stream over obs single pc.
i am here to ask you for advice again, after dreaming of a 3080 for over a year i finally purchased one and used it for a few days, playing and streaming and hell no that thing is bad. Even after optimizing, my off stream fps on the 3080 are about 220-260 and even drop down to 170. While my 6900xt had over 240 constantly even 300 in some areas of the map. But while streaming (6900xt, and encode over CPU) my fps are around 190-250. The best part is, streaming with the 3080 (nvenc new) the fps are 150-200 so WAYYYY worse than streaming over CPU with the AMD card which has more impact on perfromance. What helps me a lot is, while streaming over CPU i go to task manager and manually click Warzone cores 1-12 and obs 13-24 ( no micro stutters and latency feels awkward when i dont do that) . I am gonna send back the 3080 and use my 6900 xt. My problem is, when fast movement my cam looks kinda blurry, same with nvenc encoder. The quality of nvenc new encoder and my cpu encoder both where i guess identical. But i know want to make my stream, especially my cam while fast movement in game, not look so blurry.
i also wanted to know, i had my stream on 900p60 before but someone told me to go 936p60 whats your idea on that?
What settings you recommend me, my upload speed is about 50 mb and i wanted to stream over cpu again with my 6900 xt gaming single pc?
hey - what is your upload speed?
use this settings please:
1080p50 or 60 fps
"Faster" "baseline" "none"
8000kbps + 4000kb buffer
level=5.1 cabac=1 8x8dct=1 partitions=i8x8,i4x4,p8x8,p4x4,b8x8,b4x4 ref=3 bframes=2 b-adapt=1 fast-pskip=0 rc-lookahead=25 sync-lookahead=25 me=hex merange=16 subme=7 direct=spatial aq-mode=3 trellis=0 deadzone-inter=21 deadzone-intra=21 psy-rd=5.00:0.0
if using 60 fps both lookahead=30
this is the result of settings to lower cpu load on x264 in 720p50 while maintaining very good image quality - yet its outdated and you should only use those kind of tricks when your CPU is to weak for normal settings
ps this video you posted was stream with only 4 SMT cores i think
