Here at GGPC we’ve been happily using our Youtube channel for just over a year now (approaching 2 million views fast!), uploading hundreds of in-game performance tests as we try out all the wonderful graphics cards for ourselves and we absolutely love it, it’s through this channel that we recently started getting requests for info around what the performance is like when streaming – specifically lot’s of people wanted to know more about Twitch but until recently the quality options for that have been more suited towards console gaming than PC so we only tested things out case by case.
Now that Twitch has rolled out their enhanced video and streaming playback, upgraded to include 1080p/60fps support – we’ve jumped in officially to join in on the fun!
Eight of us have created new accounts with a fun quest to kick things off, we’ve got a lot to learn but love gaming so it promises to be good \o/
We will be hosting all the individual gamers on our main GGPC NZ Twitch channel as well, because we each have our own favourite games to play and rather unique gameplay styles it’s going to be a fantastic mess featuring everything from Monster Hunter Online to Star Citizen and Hearthstone. If you’re wanting to give streaming a go for yourself we highly recommend using Nvidia Experience to connect to Twitch, it works in a very similar way to the Shadowplay function we’re all familiar with and is wonderfully easy to use.
