Hi !
In ipi Recorder statistics are red and framerate is below 30fps, while it works perfectly in Kinect Studio v2.
CPU: i5 2500k
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970
RAM: 16GB DDR3

any ideas ?

Alright I just found a solution.
Keeping Kinect Studio 2 in the background improves framerate to 29.6 fps.

I tried this and my fps went down slightly. :-(

I've got a similar problem - low framerate, on a very high spec laptop with the latest Kinect sensor. Anyone else got any ideas?

I have a similar problem. Have 3x Kinect 2 depth sensor configuration. 2 of the depth sensors are on lower spec hardware, yet they have no problems maintaining a close to 30fps frame rate. One of the 3 sensors is running on a new Alienware R4 i7 16GB RAM, PCI-SSD, GeForce 1060 laptop, and it sometimes struggles to achieve 25fps. Sometimes a clean reboot and having absolutely no other apps running helps, sometimes not. Not clear to me where the bottleneck is. Any suggestions welcome.

Does it have a built-in Intel graphics in addition to GeForce 1060? Try disabling either one of GPUs completely.

I'm having the same issue with Kinect 2 on a 2016 MacBook Pro (running Win10 in Bootcamp). My iPi Recorder either records at a incredibly low framerate (under 5 FPS) or straight-up crashes at the first movement. The system specs are:

- 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
- 16GB RAM
- Radeon Pro 460 with 4GB RAM
- Windows 10 (Configured to focus on high performance...but there's always a chance I missed a setting.)

This is especially odd as I previously used iPi Recorder on a 2012 MacBook Pro running Windows 10 and experienced no performance issues. Here's a sample: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY5oxu0wnvU

So, the only other thing that's changed besides the laptop specs is I'm using a USB to USB-C adaptor for the Kinect 2. However, I recorded video with Kinect Studio 2.0 and the framerate is a solid 30 FPS.

I'm at a complete loss for why my performance has taken such a significant turn for the worse compared to 4-year old hardware.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I would say Kinect has hard times with the USB 3.1 controller in your new MacBook. However, if you claim it works like a charm in Kinect Studio, then I'm lost.
BTW how do you know the FPS in Kinect Studio? AFAIK it is not shown anywhere.

FPS counter shows up if it's below normal.

Not to be overly dramatic but after many many[MANY] hours of throwing myself at the wall I might have finally found the solution.
After disabling Pagefile my framerate went from around 25 to solid 30.
