AV1 Encoding supported on twitch nowadays?


New Member
I have heard that nowadays OBS supports AV1 encoding for nvidia 4000 series cards as well as intel arc cards.
Are there any lads out there that already use this av1 encoding option and how does the quality of the stream compare to regular nvenc or x264 encoding?
In particular I was curious to see if any lads stream on it on lower bitrates say like 3000 or something kb/s and at 1080p to see the quality benefits since I assume at 6000 bitrate nvenc is good enough and there won't be any significant or clearly visible enhancements (perhaps I am wrong , and if I am feel free to clarify).
