Question / Help Low load fps drops


New Member

First, I think it would be helpful for me to post my specs so everyone has a general idea of what I can work with, so here they are.... GPU: GTX 1080, CPU: Ryzen 7 1700x, RAM: 16BG DDR4. For some reason when I try to record/ stream, the game I'm playing seems to drop an incredible amount of fps. For example, when I play Battlefront 2 (2017) I usually get around 140 fps, but when I turn the stream or record button on, my fps drops to 40-50 fps. I have played with the settings and cannot figure out why, I even opened task manager to view my usage and it was never high, I will attach a screenshot that I took when I was recording and had the highest demand from my PC. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

Edit: For some reason I cannot attach the file, so I will just give the numbers: CPU usage: 25%, Memory: 62%, Disk: 3%,GPU: 37%
