Hello everyone,

I want to upgrade my CPU in order to stream at 1080p with 60fps. I am only using 1 PC so when streaming at full HD, Streamlabs tells me that I'm skipping frames due to CPU overload. So I would like to know how many cores/threads I should be aiming for to achieve this. Thank you all in advance.

Current setup:
CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 3600
CPU Cooler - Noctua NH-U12S
Motherboard - Gigabyte Aorus Pro AC
GPU - MSI 2080 Super
RAM: 32Gbs (4x8gbs DDR4-3200)
 
Ryzen 5 3600 should be enough for 1080p 60fps. I use streamlabs too, tried to stream in my E3 1240 v2 + GTX 1050, and its pretty much fluid. Try to force the encoding using Nvenc and use gpu for encoding, that way much better.

Im not sure if my in-game settings are messing it up or my upload speed but ill usually get a notification for "skipped frames" and the stream gets choppy at 1080p 60fps.
