Razer has pulled the curtain back on their new external capture device, the Ripsaw HD, giving gamers the tools they need for their game streaming needs. Come inside to learn more!

If you’ve been looking to upgrade to a new streaming/capture card, or just looking for something to get started, you may want to check out Razer’s Ripsaw HD. The new device launches this week (April 11th), and seeks to bring all the features/power to compete with Elgato’s newest, while coming in a bit cheaper ($159.99):

The Razer Ripsaw HD is a compact external capture card with pro-grade features to meet the demands of broadcasters requiring high frame rate, detailed footage and crisp audio. Capturing video in Full 1080p HD at 60 frames per second, the Ripsaw HD is designed for super smooth gameplay recording and live streaming.

The Ripsaw HD features a 4K 60 FPS passthrough, allowing broadcasters to enjoy the latest ultra-high-resolution games as the developers intended, whilst sharing the gameplay with their audience with crisp 1080p Full HD resolution at super-smooth 60 frames per second.

“With the Ripsaw HD joining our extensive Broadcaster range, streamers now have a capture card ready to broadcast the latest games at high resolution and framerates from both their PC or console,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Viewers will love the Full HD streams, while broadcasters can enjoy their games as they were intended with the 4K pass-through.”

The Ripsaw HD is compatible with PC and console, featuring a simple HDMI input and output for video capture with a single USB 3.0 connection. With built-in audio mixing, streamers can broadcast both their game and microphone audio through the Ripsaw HD with zero latency and no synching delays. The microphone input allows streamers to use one microphone across two PCs, removing the need for complicated audio mixer or software set-ups and allowing streamers to use in-game comms whilst still broadcasting their voice audio to their stream.
