Nvidia works with OBS to deliver 66% improvement to NVENC Streaming

Streaming with a minimal performance impact.

Read more about Nvidia's improvements to NVENC streaming on OBS.

Is this so Jen can say "It just works, OBS"?

Badum tish.

If you don't like what I post don't read it.

That's actually pretty cool. It'll help people who can't afford 2 PC's and have a budget system

I use my 1070's NVENC when I stream with obs, it's been a great help to my PC set up. Cannot wait to see the improvements they've made.

And the awards for the most obnoxiously impossible to understand Slides goes to: Nvidia

Their Marketing slides are absolutely impossible to make anything technical out of, "Quality Gain (PSNR)" listed in "It's just better by X" when actual PSNR is expressed in decibels, so we have no clue what the difference in dB the results are but, we sure do know "it's better".

The slide also says "x264 Fast" and the legend says "x264 Very Fast at 3500kbps"

NVENC is nice, it's really useful for people that can't afford a big CPU or a second encoding PC. I'm glad they're working on the compression and quality, but from what I'm seeing here, it's just technobabble and "it just works" type of marketing material.

Comparing 2 Images in quality without knowing the resolution/FPS/bitrates, that's helping.

I wonder if this just means that OBS and shadowplay have performance parity - there was some Nvidia proprietary tech involved in capturing the frames from card's buffer, alternative to which was somewhat CPU intensive. Though it was a drop in the ocean compared to CPU encoding video.

Think I'll stick with x264 encoding personally.
I have a couple of people who watch that don't have fibre so I need to be mindful of them with my bitrate, and at comparable bitrate x264 looks better than NVENC on my 1070.
