Pretty sure you're doing something wrong or trying for a setting that's too high then. I stream on a i7-4820K and 3070 and have no significant performance hit to do 1080 @ 30fps @ 5800 kbps. I do notice some performance issues at 60 fps and the resource requirement is higher, but (imo) that's because my game is already struggling in those areas before I start streaming.I've tried recording and streaming while I play on the same PC... it's terrible. Lots of lag and frame drop. The pro streamers have a dedicated stream server with a capture card. Streaming from a capture card to the stream server is the best option.
1st couple images explain it pretty well.
Like you Sagath I've done lots of digging and it took me a while to get to Gaming computer to capture card to stream server. OBS and twitch take a surprising amount of horse power away from the gaming rig. I was getting micro stutters etc. A good APU system would be ideal for this imo. Small form factor.
It's easy to romanticize ideas, but it's much harder to actually execute. When we're not happy with life, we often let our mind get excited about anything else until we realize that there is actual work involved or it isn't as glamorous as our imagination makes it. Yes, some 1 in 1,000,000 people get real lucky and make it big without working hard, but 99% of successful people do put in a lot of work you never see. Some of them love that work and it's just fun for them, but it's still work.Thanks for the info, but I've pretty much given up on streamer idea for now...
Call it dark days, depression or whatever... But I don't think I'm worth trying. I don't know what to do with myself.
