You are gonna want at least 4 physical cores for streaming. I'm not entirely sure if it will even be able to handle a light stream while keeping a game smooth. If you are trying to stream on a budget then I would switch to Ryzen. It has much better price to performance when it comes to productivity tasks like streaming.
