    *NOTE*: We have issued a correction to the DOTA2 charts in the article. The original baseline 1700 results for DOTA 2 read 167FPS, which was actually a framerate number from one of our 7700K passes (averaged later) — so a typographical error. Fortunately, it does not impact tone of content or performance for either CPU in streaming, which is what we were interested in. Just the baseline 1700 number has changed, nothing else. This means that the 1700 is actually much further behind Intel than originally thought in baseline performance, but also means that the 1700 doesn't fall as far as thought in the streaming tests (streaming results, again, are unchanged).

    Plenty more testing in the pipes, as always. Some of those charts (FPS charts) should say "framerate" for the X axis, not "percent of frames." That's pretty obvious, though.

    I am using x264 high priority ,quality is up and preset is fast or faster and stream always has a freeze during gameplay livestream…from my phone..I am trying different options with AMF and x264.
    running in 1080p qaulity fullscreen and 60fps…

    my laptop can handle everygame in fullscreen maxxed seetings.
    I do not understand why my pc cannot work well with OBS 23.1.0 64-bit windows

    but cannot find the sweet spot.

    games I aim for streaming now Rome II and Attila Total War.

    Why test at 1080p 60 FPS when most people actually stream at 720p? Wouldn't that information be more useful?

    My i7 7700 can handle pubg at 4k encoding 1080p 10k fast preset with zero performance hit. I'm not sure this was a good example.

    again another bad review intel vs ryzen, why the inten cpu its not using QSV ? the i7 has a integrated gpu to stream

    Prolly one of the best comparisons on the web, great job!
    Although I saw some other videos where R7 had less FPS than i7 on gaming, thoughts on that?

    which is better for the stuff im gonna be using my pc for (55% gaming,20% streaming/youtube vid making/yt vid editing,25% graphics design eg photoshop and solidworks) the ryzen 7 1700 or the i5-8600k rn im leaning to the ryzen (even though my main use is gaming and gaming is better on the i5),as its only like 5 fps worse MMMMMMMUUUUUUUCCCCCCHHHHHHH better streaming performance and better for vid editing and graphics design

    Hey Gamers Nexus! I'm really at a fork in the road here when looking to upgrade. I currently have an i5-7600k paired with an RX 480, and can game perfectly fine but struggle majorly when trying to stream while recording as well. I would really like to get into streaming, and was thinking of going with the Ryzen 7 1700 (meaning i would need to get a B-350 MoBo). The other choice i have is the i7-8700K, which would use the same 1151 socket. I will be editing my own videos and live streaming while recording simultaneously, but honestly have no idea which way i should go. I have some time before i will be able to buy any of these, so if you were in my position would you go Ryzen, 8700k, or wait to see what comes out next? Sorry for the novel, and thanks for the future advice.

    this cpu is a multitasking beast, i can verify this, a bloody good cpu i tell you.

    3mb/s bitrate is the max recommended for Twitch. Anything higher is almost unwatchable for most connections.

    i'm a dumby , and am watching this at work at a decent low volume, so I may have missed it, or not.
    BUt, what is the different between r7 1700 stock and "Baseline r7 1700 stock"?

  13. Ricky D 26 June, 2020 at 13:01 Reply

    so i own the 7700k thats all i have and i cant upgrade. Will the 7700k be decent for streaming for a few years.
