    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition

    so, since I have issue with AMD Encoder (I don't run dual PC), I think my RX5700 will be replaced by a 3070/3080, when it's available... well, except if I can grab a 2070 super or 2080 for very cheap haha! still running 1080P 144fps, but could upgrade to a gsync or 1440p monitor! Great review...

    Hehe here, its going to be hot. But electricity is not that expensive! Installed boinc into a vm on my server, so no host crash anymore ! 50% cpu usage of 6 core. That better than nothing!

    Actually, AM4 has 4 gen CPU supported right now. Bristol (Well, all serie in the A**) Summit (Ryzen 1000) Pinacle (ryzen 2000 and variant iGPU) Matisse (Ryzen 3000 and Variant iGPU) Still, 4 gen CPU on AM4, which is not bad at all. I would say we have to wait, maybe there is a reason why the...

    Why does AMD VCE cause major stutter in some games?

    Try OBS. This is what I see of offline recording. File are getting big, but quality is not bad at all. 1080p60 Note, AMD Encoder, is not as good as NVENC. If you are streaming, you should use CPU with a rescale to 720p. 6000kbps for AMD encoder (Using CBR) is not that great..
