That would be due the fact that your recording software is heavily loading one of the CPU cores which is forcing the CPU to stay at max speed instead of throttling down for power saving. So you don't experience lag spikes caused by the delay which is required for CPU to speed up in order to be able to handle bigger load when needed.psihius wrote: ↑Fri Sep 21, 2018 1:28 pmAlso, I found out that game is way more stable in performance in tight resource situations (for me it's playing game, recording in OBS for stream via CPU and in parallel recording via nvenc video card a local file) when I set core affinity (I usually give Factorio 2 cores out of 4 - works out brilliantly). Could Factorio do that on start maybe?
Now when I'm plying Factorio I allow it to use all 8 cores of my AMD FX 8350 CPU. Spreading the load to all 8 CPU cores allows my CPU to remain in low power state almost all the time. Granted I still haven't reached building of megabases yet,
I do experience slight stutter once in a while but from my observation this is most often caused by some other background application suddenly needing lots of processing power.
