MSI Afterburner video capture much slower on Windows 10 (than Windows 7)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I noticed that recording with Afterburner on Windows 10 caused my frame rate to drop massively, from ~130-150fps to 20-30fps, while the same recording settings (MJPEG @ 85@ quality, 1080p 60fps) in Windows 7 only brought the frame rate down to ~60fps.
The PC isn't so great by today's standards (Q8400 + GTX460) but why is the frame rate impact so much worse on Windows 10 than on Windows 7? (same graphics driver version as well)

Did you do an upgrade to Win 10 from Win 7 or completely new install?

Are you recording to a 2nd drive, and not on your OS drive?

"Upgrade" so that I could activate Windows 10, but I chose "keep nothing" so it was basically a clean install. It was also from a clean Windows 7 install with nothing on it. (was previously running Windows 7, but when I decided to upgrade, I reinstalled Windows 7 first then clean "upgraded" straight to 10 from a disk)

The only reason I discovered that recording was faster on Windows 7 was because I decided to install Windows 7 again in a VHD using native boot (dual boot 7 and 10) to see if Windows 7 would give me better recording performance, which it did...

I also noticed that if I record with Bandicam, using CUDA recording absolutely destroys my frame rate in Windows 10 but it's much better in Windows 7.

Could be immaturity of software/drivers still at this point. You might want to report your findings to MSI AB at least so that any future versions of it will take into consideration this problem, unless someone else has an idea what may be going on.

Unwinder already posted that a new version of RTSS (which is the recording component of AB) is due out very soon. It will be the first version since windows 10 release. So I would expect improvements.

unwinder posts on those forums, but he is under no obligation to reply btw.
