Game Mode: On |Off

Turning this “On” While using OBS will give OBS rendering performance, and can possibly loose Frames (FPS) in your game. Your stream will be smoother without encoder overload, but your game may suffer. Turning this “Off” will keep all your FPS in game, but OBS may have encoder overload issues.

Reduce latency and improve performance. OBS says to turn this “Off” due to being experimental, and could cause issues with streaming. I personally have not noticed any issues.
