Best Cpu for Streaming – BUYER’S GUIDE

If you’re doing a dual-PC setup, you don’t really need to worry about the gaming performance of your streaming machine’s CPU, since all of its resources can be easily allocated to the stream. You can fairly safely opt for one of our budget picks for your streaming PC.

If you’re looking to stream with a single-PC setup, however, you’ll need to spend a lot more on your CPU. This is because gaming doesn’t scale as well to multiple cores. Modern game engines are getting better in this regard, but until very recently most games were not built for utilizing more than the first four cores of a processor particularly well.

WRAP UP

If you’re already somewhat tech-savvy, you may be able to anticipate some of the choices that we’re going to make. Spoiler: you’re going to see a lot of AMD representation in this article, due to their stellar streaming-while-gaming performance with their CPUs, and their strong multi-threaded performance in general. However, we’re going to give a detailed rundown of how you can expect each of our selected CPUs to perform, and even discuss an alternative to CPU-based encoding for live-streaming your games.
