    NVENC: is it possible to record two 4k monitors (7680 x 2160p) at 60 fps smoothly?

    Hello, I have two 4k monitors that I want to record side-by-side within a 7680 x 2160p canvas, no gaming, just desktop graphics (charts and text), is an RTX 3050 sufficient for this purpose? No streaming, just recording. HDD space is not an issue. I have attached logs from the attempts I've...

    Why does nvenc encoder use so much storage

    So I have a new rtx 2060 I got some weeks ago and I tried to record somewhat of an hour session of gameplay and when I went to go take a look the file size was around 40gb what's up with that luckily I have a 2tb hard drive but still what's up with that.

    Does platform affect NVENC quality? (Ampere/Turing)

    I couldn't find any comparison videos/screenshots if NVENC on windows and linux produce the same quality at the same settings. Is there any technical differences?

    Turing NVENC or wait for Intel Arc Hardware Accelerated AV1 encoder?

    My cousin offer me his 1660 Super for $175 US. I am not playing games in my PC, only on console. I would like to use NVENC to record gameplay only. Should I buy his 1660 Super (Turing NVENC) or wait for Intel's cheapest new graphic card (rumor say its gonna be around $150) that comes with...

    Encoder overload NVENC (new) while recording

    Hi there, I have a PC that should be more than capable of playing & recording and for some reason I get encoder overload whilst recording resulting in 1-2 second freezes in my recordings. I have troubleshooted a few fixes listed in this forum and still cannot understand why it is overloading...

    Hello! In my OBS Recordings, sometimes I notice a subtle dip in frames when I record with at 720p60, for about 5 seconds of the recording. OBS reports nothing in the "Dropping Frames" section when it happens. My recording settings are as follows: I've already tried lowering Bitrate, changing...

    OBS Studio NVENC going to 0 bitrate when playing games that uses GPU Scaling.

    Hello everyone, I'm having problems with OBS studio when live streaming with NVENC and play games that uses 4:3 resolution. On NVIDIA Control Panel, I use the GPU scaling so my 4:3 games apear as 4:3 to me (not stretched to the 16:9 resolution of the monitor). But recently, when open or close...

    NVENC actually uses a lot of GPU resources and watts

    The premise of NVENC is to handle video encoding without impacting game performance much. There's a lot of discussion on the internet about the computer resources used by NVENC in various forums, blogs, Youtube videos, etc and the general consensus seems to be that it does use a bit of CPU and...

    Skipped frames with low cpu usage on x264 encoder.

    I am having issues with skipped frames on x264 even though my CPU usage is 4% on the OBS stats panel, and with the task manager the CPU output is less than 8%. I did a bunch of live stream tests on a private twitch account and I was able to get everything to run smoothly on the Slow preset with...

    Why OBS is using a significant amount of CPU when using NVENC?

    From my understanding, the composition of the different sources is done on the GPU and it's also the case for the encoding (NVENC) so what is left on the CPU? I have a CPU bottleneck so I would like to know how I can influence the CPU consumption of OBS knowing I'm using NVENC encoding

    Does streaming and recording at the same time use more CPU when using NVENC?

    using recording quality same as stream or different quality. Is it just asking more work to the encoder (on the GPU) or is it doing more work on the CPU too?

    How far NVENC can go for recording gameplay locally

    We all know our recording capability with x264 encoder is pretty much defined by our CPU. It's core, it's number of core, it's clock speed etc. But what about NVENC? Let's say Turing Gen here Does NVENC works alone without taking a single NVIDIA GPU cores resources? If this is the case, it...
