AMD Encoder VERY bad/pixelated


New Member
So I just switched from an old GTX 1060 to an RX 6600XT and the performance is exceptional. Trying to stream games with the AMD encoder on the other hand looks disgustingly bad. Now I know that ''apparently'' the AMD encoder is suppose to be worse then NVIDIAs but check the video I posted below. It cannot be THAT bad. I've tried all possible OBS settings and my encoding with the 1060 was miles ahead even if my performance dropped significantly before I changed my GFX card to the 6600XT. I unfortunately can't stream with the processor as I have an i5-11400f and I drop frames when streaming with it and as a competitive gamer I need to be at 165 frames at all times. The AMD streaming works really well but I have no idea why the image quality comes out so disgusting. I've checked other people testing streaming with my card and it is nowhere near as bad so I would appreciate some help.
