What really matters when you’re buying a streaming PC?
Playing the latest games with a high resolution and smooth FPS places high demands on the hardware. Whether live or recorded, simultaneous streaming increases these requirements even more. So a streaming PC must deliver high performance to ensure that there are no frame drops while gaming and that the recording and streaming quality also remains consistently high.
The CPU for a streaming PC should offer at least eight cores for smooth multi-tasking. So AMD Ryzen, not to mention Intel i7 and i9, processors with up to 12 cores are superbly suited to streaming.
For parallel gaming and streaming, you need a particularly powerful graphics card. GPUs of the Nvidia RTX 3000 series have been tried and tested and are particularly well suited to streaming thanks to NVENC video encoding technology. By the way, the higher the resolution and frame rate, the more graphics memory your streaming PC should have. We recommend at least 8 GB for flawless streaming.
It is critical for streamers that all components have sufficient memory. At least 16 GB or, even better, 32 GB of RAM form the foundation of short loading times and quick data processing during recording. Hard drives should offer at least 1 TB of memory. There’s nothing worse than when the hard drive ends up full in the middle of a game – and the recording disappears…
Finally, the streaming PC’s noise level is important too. Studies have shown that viewers switch off faster when watching videos with poor sound quality than when watching videos with poor picture quality. So a good streaming microphone is a must-have accessory. To avoid background noise like annoying fan noise, your streaming PC should be as quiet as possible with the likes of high-quality fans and quiet cooling systems.
That’s why you should buy streaming PCs from Joule Performance Switzerland:
Streaming places special demands on a PC. Far too often, gaming PCs that don’t meet these specific requirements at all are offered as streaming PCs.
