    Yes. 2 cores are idling and the Host has the Hardware encoder available that Steam use for in-house streaming.

      What about the GPU? the videostream is converted using the GPU.

        The GPU has a dedicated Video encoder.

          sure, but how is the gpu performance compared to the situation without streaming?

          Installing windows at this moment , wanna test it on my rig.

          You probably seen this entry already, just to be sure:

          How do I diagnose streaming performance problems?

          You can look in logs\streaming_log.txt on the remote computer after you play a game to get a detailed breakdown of how much time was spent in each component of the streaming system.
          While the game is running, you can hit F6 or the Guide button combined with the Y button on your game controller to turn on live statistics for the session. While the statistics are visible the game collects more detailed information which is saved in logs\SteamVideoTrace.txt and logs\SteamAudioTrace.txt at the end of the session.
          While the statistics are visible, you can hit F8 or the Guide button combined with the X button on your game controller to save a screenshot and 10 seconds worth of stats to a zip file in the streaming directory in the Steam folder on the remote computer.
          There is a good article on how to interpret the log information here:http://steamcommunity.com/groups/hom...3523404402134/

            The New Stream shows that he is not using the Hardware encoder. He use x264 on 2 threads. but there is no error that shows a problem.

              Looks like that Valve dont support AMDs VCE. Only Nvidias and Intels Hardware Encoder.
