GTX 960 + Intel 4600 - Stutter on iGPU connected monitor.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

1. Playing a game + watching a twitch stream/youtube video on second causes the second screen to lag/stutter.

2. Recording with OBS using Intel Quick Sync gives "Exceeding use of CPU".

3. Recording with OBS using Intel Quick Sync causes stutter on main screen + recording skips quite alot of frames (Inconsitent 50-55 FPS)

4. I used to be able to have game open, recording with OBS, preview open on second monitor + open browser with preview of live stream. Now it's impossible because of huge lag on second screen.


Old stream(GTX 980):

 -15000 bits/s (bitrate), 1080p60fps


New stream(GTX 960):
 -15000 bits/s (bitrate), 1080p60fps


Old recording(GTX 980):

24GB RAM (2x8 + 2x4)

Above issues didn't happen on GTX 980 (Sold because it was way too much for my needs)

Well it is a huge downgrade, a 960 is not really fitted for 1080p60fps recording. the 980 was perfect for that.

Sounds like the 980 wasn't way too much for your needs after all...


Have you tried connecting the second monitor to the 960 instead?

Sounds crazy, but I wasn't very thrilled with how my Intel GPU was performing when I had the second monitor plugged into it.

I now have both my monitors plugged into my 960 via DP to HDMI cables, and things are much more stable.

of course this will happen. 980 is double the power of a 960 and then some
