Question / Help Dropped Frames Under Good Setup?


New Member
Hey guys, I stream on twitch, but I notice a lot of dropped frames. I have a mid-high end gaming desktop and would like to know why I am experiencing these drops on stream. I have an i7-8700K (6 Cores), 8GB GTX 1080, 16GB 3200MHz Ram, 256GB 970EVO, 1TB 7200rpm SSHD, etc. My upload is 54Mbps and I ran a connection test to Twitch servers as well. I have like a 20 ping to the nearest server. Any idea as to why I am receiving these frame drops? I have followed so many videos, yet none have fixed my issue. I dropped bitrate to 3500 once and it still didnt help.
