Elgato’s Standalone Game Capture Records 4K Gaming at 60 FPS, If You Have $400

Elgato 4K60 S+

The Elgato 4K60 S+ is an external game capture device that allows you to capture HDR enhanced 4K recording at a smooth 60 frames per second with or without a PC.

As long as you have the $399 MSRP to shell out, that is. You can think of the new 4K60 S+ as the Switch of game captures. Equip the box with a large enough SD card and you can capture at this resolution on the go without connecting to a computer.

Connecting the device to your rig opens up new functionality including retroactive “Flashback” recording and compatibility with popular livestream platforms such as Streamlabs OBS.

Offering zero-lag passthrough and a separate track for your voice for live commentary, this game capture evolves into a supreme all-in-one device for recording and streaming. While there are alternative external capture devices that record at 4K resolution, they are limited to 30 frames per second.
