What equipment do I need to stream on twitch?

The minimum graphics card to avoid latency is a Radeon RX 5600 XT or an RTX 2060 KO. If you want optimal performance, the best hardware for streaming on Twitch is a PC combining a Core i9 or Ryden 9 latest generation processor, with an RTX 3080 (or even 3090) or RX 6800 XT graphics card. But the bill is likely to be very salty.

If you opt for two PCs, the one intended for broadcasting does not need to be very powerful. 8 GB of RAM is enough (or even 4 GB), and a graphics card is not necessary. Think, however, to invest in a video capture card. The PC intended for gaming can then be satisfied with a Core i5 or a Raden 5, and 16 GB (or even 8 GB) of RAM. Nothing prevents you, however, from opting for more high-end equipment to stream with two PCs on Twitch!

 

Twitch streaming equipment for beginners

With a Twitch gaming channel, you don't have to film yourself. But you will need a microphone and a headset to interact with your community. To start, a gaming headset equipped with a good microphone can be enough equipment to stream on Twitch. But if you want to offer quality sound, a dedicated microphone will quickly prove essential. Choose it with a foot (or a small pole), to guarantee its stability. Opt for a cardioid pattern, suitable for the voice. For solo streaming, you can choose the very popular Yeti for instance. Designed for plug-and-play live, they are very easy to use. If you choose a professional microphone with an XLR connector, you will also have to buy a sound card. A small mixing console can complete your setup, especially if your channel offers interviews or talk shows, and therefore requires several microphones.

 

A high-performance Webcam

Finally, you will need a camera to have images to broadcast! The simplest solution is to use your PC's native webcam, if you have one. But the quality will probably not be there. It is best to invest in specific video equipment for streaming on Twitch. Be sure to choose an ergonomic and versatile camera, to avoid unfortunate disappointments in full live! Depending on your budget, opt for a model in HD, Full HD, or even 4K if you can afford it. Ideally, choose a camera filming at 60 frames per second, to ensure optimal fluidity. Finally, pay attention to the quality of the autofocus and the image processing options. The Logitech Stream-cam is for example a good solution to start, without breaking the bank and without negotiating too much on quality.
