  • GFX
    • Gigabyte Aorus 1080 TI Xtreme
  • Desktop or Laptop System
    • Desktop

I recently changed from an Intel i7-5820k (6x3.40GHz) to an 1950x and don't regret it at all!

There are no really issues or problems that can't be solved via the Master Tool, even Games are working fine.


The main use for my new PC is Gaming, Streaming and Video Editing, and the last point really dissapoints me. It dissapoints me so much, that there must be a error the way i use this 32 Thread Beast, otherwise i cannot explain the low FPS-Rates i get while encoding a video.


I searched a lot across the Internet, but no one else seems to have this problem, what is pretty uncommon...


What i do:

- record some gameplay @2560x1440 (60 FPS, mostly) using DxTory with MagicYUV-Codec (near to lossless, huge filesize)

- while encoding i resize the video to 3200x1800 with 60 FPS

- x264 or x265


The Intel-based system used to work with 20-40 FPS, depending on the raw-material.

The new 1950x system barley reaches 20 FPS...this CAN'T be normal!


Tested with:

- TMPGEnc Videoworks 6

- MeGui (AFAIK the fastest x264 build)

- StaxRIP


All Cores are running at 100% while encoding.


If you have ANY hints or ideas, i would really appreciate to hear from you!

If any additional details or screenshots are required, please let me know.
