Low Latency Streaming to Twitch

If you’ve been following my social media for the past few years, or have read my Recording or Streaming on NVIDIA Turing/Ampere guides, I’m always chasing the next higher level of “perfection”. And this time I was chasing the lowest possible latency on Twitch – and it appears that I have finally found it, after days of trying. 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
