I figure it has to be a conversation between my computer and my GPU.
I have a:
geforce RTX 2080Ti
64Gigs of RAM
Intel Core i7-7700K CPU @ 4.2 GHz
I am completely at a loss, if anyone has any ideas on how to fix it. I can post one of the stream attempts, if needed.
It's the processor holding you back. If you're really serious about this (I know it's been months, you might not care anymore) get yourself a nice shiny new second or third gen Ryzen. For streaming from the same box you're using to play, you'll be more processing cores. Most professional streamers use a second computer just to process the stream, but with the chips AMD has been putting out lately, you can do it just fine from one box if you buy the right CPU.
