Stream/Preview lagging when in game


New Member
Okay so how do I explain this best..
whenever I tab into Apex while OBS is running or my stream is on the preview and stream become insanely laggy, almost like a slideshow at times.
I just got a new CPU (i7-9700k) as my old (i5-8600k) died.
I am using the same OBS settings as with my old CPU with which I had no such issues.
HOWEVER: When I limit Apex FPS to 60 via the Launchcommand it runs buttery smooth on stream. The game itself is never laggy for me, I hit 144FPS at 1440p without issues. The problem only occours on stream and in OBS. Also it is much worse when I play Apex in Fullscreen rather than Borderless Windowed.

Try limitting Apex to 120fps, so you have a better game performance and less effort on the encoder to get the 60fps output. If it helps, let us know.
