  1. Well although I completely love their videos on all channels and the forums etc, I haven't actually donated financially (apart from buying a few tshirts). However I completely agree that the over the top length ads that they run is a bit excessive - although as you said I don't mind the sponsorships and showcase videos (which are the only videos of theirs that I don't always watch). But I do feel bad sometimes for just taking their content for granted, you know, because it's just free on youtube even though the effort that goes into 1 video on ltt a day, ignoring the other channels, must be insane.
  2. Okay the problem seems to have fixed itself on its own. Thanks for everyone's help, much appreciated
  3. Yes definitely. 144hz works everywhere else, in every other game and while just in windows etc. And when minecraft is not in fullscreen. Very odd.
  4. And my maximum framerate in the minecraft settings is unlimited, and the resolution set to current.
  5. Right. I think I've found the issue, but I don't know what's causing it. (oh and my G-Sync was set to fullscreen applications only). When in minecraft, in fullscreen, my fps is capped at 60. This is why it is stuttery at higher framerates. Any ideas why this is happening? It is not capped when in windowed mode, but when in fullscreen I just get capped at 60fps.
  6. Yeah good for the future so thanks a lot but didn't help with the bad performance. Also (maybe unrelated maybe not) sometimes when I do something seemingly random, like minimize chrome or open spotify, my monitor or the fps dips down to 60fps, then sometimes goes away sometimes doesn't. This occurs in the minecraft launcher, and although the fps will be over 60 sometimes I feel like i'm only ever getting 60. very weird. I'll check with my monitor's in built fps counter. Still doesn't explain the bad performance in general. Surely I should be getting more fps than that in minecraft with an i5 8600k and an rtx 2070
  7. Will try this now. Thanks for the quick reply
  8. Hey, Recently I've decided to pick minecraft up again and the performance I get is truly terrible. First of all, I'm running a 2560x1440 monitor @144hz, with gsync enabled, settings shown in screenshot. However, in game, I am getting fps of 40-120 while just walking around. Even when my fps is 100-120, it feels stuttery like I have a lower framerate (gsync is still on, and in other games e.g. sottr it feels smooth with a highly fluctuating fps). I am not using optifine because in 1.14.4 (the latest version of optifine) I get short fps dips when crossing chunk borders which is incredibly irritating. I have tried absolutely everything and I don't know what to do at this point. I've attached a video of the issue, although it isn't quite as apparent as the video is only 60fps and my monitor is 144hz and also it's not so great quality wise. I just feel like with my hardware I should be getting way higher fps in a game like minecraft, and other people with similar hardware seem to easily be able to pull 250-300fps. I hope you can help, thanks, Henry https://www.filehosting.org/file/details/842215/2020-01-13%2021-25-49.mp4 (video as its over 20mb)
  9. As we all know AMD is hugely ahead of Intel in terms of cpu, and I was wondering what that means for my system with an i5 8600k. Is it really outdated? I only got it about a year ago so all of this AMD stuff is really making me nervous. I'd love your opinions, Henry
  10. Cyberpunk 2077 is available for preorder on steam although I don't know weather my PC is powerful enough. It should be, and I'm fairly confident it is, but there have been some rumors spreading about of a minimum spec of an i7-8700k and a 1080Ti, and if that is the case I don't want to waste £50. Any thoughts? Thanks, Henry
  11. Yeah, I just ran a speed test and that's what I'm getting. For streaming I am using Streamlabs OBS.
  12. I have actually realised that after uploading that video it doesn't look as bad as it did before, although my facecam doesn't look that great when that's on. If you were wondering, I can't use software x264 because my cpu can't handle it. Even on the very fast preset, my fps in a game as old as Fallout 4 drops dramatically, and it looks worse than NVENC on the very fast preset anyway.
  13. Here's a video and screenshots. I am not expecting my stream to look perfect, that's impossible. Although it does look pretty bad. When I record and I don't stream, it looks flawless with no blockiness and it looks crisp 1080p 60fps. Clip from Twitch.mp4
  14. Hey, This probably isn't the right topic to post this in but I didn't know where to post it so... When I am streaming to twitch, it looks pixelated. I am using the NVENC (new) encoder. I don't know what the difference is between the old and new NVENC, and I can't tell the difference so I use the new one. I have set my video bitrate to 5000kbps (and I have tried 6000kbps) but my stream still looks pixelated. My internet speed is 70 mbps down 18 mbps up. Considering the maximum bitrate for twitch is 6000kbps and other streamers streams don't look pixelated, what can I do? Thanks
  15. Not without going out and buying one anyway. My power supply (nzxt e650) is relatively new, and I have just gone through a lengthy RMA with my cooler so I'd be pretty annoyed if it is the power supply
