Ultra-HD 4K 60fps Video Capture
When it comes to game capture tech there’s one team that reigns supreme – Elgato. It seems fitting then that Elgato is securing the forefront of the game capture scene with the brand-new 4K60 Pro.
The 4K60 Pro, as the name suggests, captures native 4K resolution gaming at 60fps, and this is by no means a small feat. In fact, this tech is so ridiculously powerful you’re going to need a decent rig to support it.
4K is definitely here to stay and as Elgato’s Julian Fest said: “content creators shouldn’t be limited by the constraints of their capture hardware”. The timing of this release couldn’t be better what with the Xbox One X just around the corner and the PS4 Pro already sitting pretty in gamers media cabinets. But, just how tasty is this hardware and what do you need to run it?
