Question / Help Optimal Stream Settings for OBS 1pc Setup


New Member
Hi guys,

at first I am a native german speaker so please have that in mind :)
At the moment I try to optimize my streaming quality due to an upgraded PC.

I am using a single PC Setup:
CPU -> Ryzen 7 1700 @ 3,9 GHz
GPU -> MSI GTX 1080
RAM -> 16 GB 3200 MHz Corsair
Monitor 24" @ 1920x1080 144 Hz
Win 10 + PUBG on SSD

PUBG Settings:
AA Medium
Textures Low
View Medium
Screenscale 100
1920x1080 screen resolution
The rest at ulow for better enemy visability not for performance!
Normally I have around 144 fps at the airplane and some lonely areas, Cities approx. 70-100

My actual OBS Settings:
Encoder x264, video 720P @ medium CPU preset and 60 FPS, Bicubic filter, Keyframe Intervall 2, Profil "High"
Bitrate I can choose up to 6k with my internet
OBS priority on normal

I have read a lot of stuff "how to optimize your stream" Youtube / Forums etc, but now I would like to ask some peoples thoughts about htis topic.

Now the question is what would you increase to make the stream look better?
810p? 864p? Lanczos? Tune = Animation? 900p at fast encoder ?
Set optional encoder parameter settings I found -> subme=8 ref=5 direct=auto (This should use some settings from "slow" preset)
Is there any ranking what setting will be more effective for the quality?

I made some tests yesterday, if someone would be that great to check them.
I have tested 810p, 864p, 900p ... Lanczos .. Tune = Animation ...
Bitrate calculator: at 01:47:00 PUBG
4,2k Bitrate + 720p + lanczos + medium + tune = animation + encoder parameters at 00:39:00 some shooting + driving
5,1k Bitrate + 810p + bicubic + medium + tune = animation short video
5,8k Bitrate + 864p + bicubic + medium + tune = animation short video
6k Bitrate + 900p + bicubic + fast

Just want to know whats your opinions about 900p fast or 810p medium or 720p medium (maybe slow?) + lanczos + a lot of seperate settings or filters :)
If you need any more information please let me know.

Thank you guys very much in advance <3
Greetings PoMsN
