Best voice chat for low CPU usage?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've got some friends playing on laptops or older PCs and Discord and Steam chat gobble too much CPU, either we can't hear them if Discord is on "Low" or at least they sound like robots and drop words, or if they up the priority it makes games like PubG stutter etc.

 

I can host my own server for free so thinking TeamSpeak but are Mumble or Vent lower CPU usage for clients?

I would do discord with low settings maybe even discord in browser

discord in browser has had great success for me, I use a chromebook that struggles immensely with the app, using a dual core Pentium, but the browser version works a lot better.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Oooh, they definitely won't be able to open chrome etc while gaming, is there a lightweight standalone chat program that'd be more suitable before I get in amongst teamspeak?

It's a laptop with an i5 and a G930 or something, PubG is a real stretch for it

I'd rather just get them onto something like Teamspeak or Mumble, do you have experience with either?
