Warning Old Version (27.1.3)
You are running an old version of OBS Studio (27.1.3). Please update to version 27.2.4 by going to Help -> Check for updates in OBS or by downloading the latest installer from the downloads page and running it.
Info Insufficient Hardware
Your system is below minimum specs for OBS to run and is too underpowered to livestream using software encoding. Livestreams and recordings may run more smoothly if you are using a hardware encoder like QuickSync, NVENC or AMF (via Settings -> Output).
Info Windows 11 21H2 (OK)
You are running Windows 11 21H2, which will be supported by Microsoft until October 2023.
Info 1.0% Rendering Lag
Your GPU is maxed out and OBS can't render scenes fast enough. Running a game without vertical sync or a frame rate limiter will frequently cause performance issues with OBS because your GPU will be maxed out. OBS requires a little GPU to render your scene.

Enable Vsync or set a reasonable frame rate limit that your GPU can handle without hitting 100% usage.

If that's not enough you may also need to turn down some of the video quality options in the game. If you are experiencing issues in general while using OBS, your GPU may be overloaded for the settings you are trying to use.

Please check our guide for ideas why this may be happening, and steps you can take to correct it: GPU Overload Issues.
Info 1.1% GPU Encoder Overload
The encoder is skipping frames because of GPU overload. Read about troubleshooting tips in our GPU Overload Guide.
