So recently, as in the past week, when I play games that are a bit more intensive to stream, I get sudden FPS drops. Games such as TF2 can stream smoothly at 720p+ with 200+ in-game FPS, but then every 3-4 minutes I'll get a drop to 7 or so FPS for a few seconds.
The thing is, it's only as of late, and I've been using the same settings and computer. I actually streamed from my friend's internet connection as well with the same settings despite his marginally slower internet with no FPS drop. I'm not getting any Dropped Frames, by the way.
My Settings and PC Specs are listed below. Any help is appreciated.
PC (Asus RoG G74SX Laptop)
2.2GHz Quad-Core i7
GeForce 560M 3GB VRAM
12GB DDR3 RAM
1.5TB 7200RPM HDD
Not sure on the MOBO
Windows 7 Home Premium
Stream Settings (OBS):
Bitrate: 2500 (5mbps upload) for both
720p @ 30 FPS
Default Advanced Settings
Any other needed information just let me know.
Have you tried updating your graphics card driver as well as Windows software? This seems like a local issue really.
Evo_fire, he said that it only recently started doing it, so I’m not sure why suggesting it’s a hardware problem would fix anything. What likely happened is a update or driver issue broke something, or he has a virus scanner running in the background or something else that is causing his computer to be under strain while playing.
