3950X for Gaming, Streaming and Recording at the same time?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

How well would a 3950x work to game, stream at 1080p 60fps and record at 4k at the same time? Would a 3900x be enough or is it better to go for a 3950x?

Depends on the quality you want but a 3950x would certainly get the job done. You may want to wait two months for Zen 3 though.

3950 has a little higher clocks and would bring better performance. But not sure on that dollar increase though.

But yes will handle 4k streaming and recording fine.

How about the 3900x?

To add on what's been said above, if you've got a Turing based GPU with the exception of the 1650 (so 1650 Super, 1660, and all the way up to the 2080Ti), you can just use NVENC encoding and get away with a 3700X/10600K.

What gpu do you have? Because if it's a Turing card then you can just use nvec and get a 3700x/3600 which will be good enough.

with cpu encode? depending on your game but most of the time probably not enough cpu horsepower to do it

 

as others have stated, use GPU encoding, it almost has no impact and turing nvenc has better quality than x264 medium/slow preset anyways

 

not sure how well it would handle 1080p 60fps and 4K encoding at the same time, though

 

my 3900x struggled to encode 1080p 60fps at 9000kbps (upscaled with lanczos to 1440p on output) on medium x264 while running monster hunter world at the same time, have to use fast preset, which isnt ideal


Things I need help with:

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

im not sure if it's capable of capturing 4K and 1080p60 at the same time, i would believe it should be able to, never tested though

but if you're using nvenc encode, you dont need a 3950x, unless you have other needs for it

Looks like it;'s better to just buy a 3900x system and use it as a dedicated streaming/recording/rendering a rig. My goal is to stream and possibly record at 4k (worst case scenario) at the same time without the overlays in order to upload the same stream with high quality footage on youtube.
