The age of 4K gaming has arrived. With 4K screens being cheaper than ever (I got mine for <200$) and both major systems now doing 4K gaming. So its far past time for a device that can flawlessly capture your 4K gaming experience to exist. Surprisingly there have been precious few entries in to this market. Now the biggest name in capture cards is wading in, dropping the first look at the appropriately named 4K60 pro. Which can capture 4K gameplay at 60FPS for all your content production needs.

Elgato Gaming today announced that the 4K60 Pro, a first-of-its-kind capture card capable of flawlessly capturing 4K footage at 60 frames per second, will be available on November 21, 2017. Originally teased at Gamescom 2017, the 4K60 Pro will be the first consumer-ready 4K capture card to hit the market. The 4K60 Pro is ideal for capturing Ultra HD footage from a PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, PC, or any other unencrypted HDMI source. Pre-Orders for the 4K60 Pro are available on Elgato and Amazon for an MSRP of $399.95.

Julian Fest, General Manager of Elgato Gaming said of 4K gaming:

“4K content is here to stay and demand is booming. Content creators shouldn’t be limited by the constraints of their capture hardware. The 4K60 Pro gives creators the tools they need to stay ahead of the curve and give their audiences nothing less than the best.”

Robust hardware, coupled with Elgato’s custom-built software, provide a dedicated framework for maximum performance. This allows content creators to record with ease and export to their preferred editing application, crafting their final product on their own terms. Elgato’s Instant Gameview powers creators’ workflow with real-time precision and ultra low-latency — even when pushing an incredible number of pixels.
