    So, I upgraded a dude's PC from a 6700K to i9 9900k+2080 TI +32GB 3466 RAM and he says he still can't play PUBG + stream with OBS+ record without dropping frames. He has made up his mid to build a second computer dedicated to capture, encode and stream. I am questioning between the value of AMD 2700X core count vs the clock speed of Intel.

    Any streamers of PUBG and DoTA have suggestions?

    Don't they make dedicated streaming cards for this purpose?
