Elgato newest external capture card delivers VRR compatibility and 4K capture for the latest gaming systems

Elgato has just launched a new external capture card, and it supports some killer new features. For starters, it is the first capture card that supports Variable Refresh Rate technology, a useful add-on for owners of Xbox Series X/S consoles and a VRR compatible TV. With PlayStation launching a VRR update for PS5 soon (source), the Elgato HD60 X will be a very useful product for those who want to play the latest consoles with VRR compatible displays.

With support for 4K 30FPS, 1440p 60FPS, and 1080p 120FPS recording and 4K 60FPS, 1440p 120FPS, and 1080p 240FPS pass-through (with HDR10), the Elgato HD60 X is well suited to most use cases, offering users a great streaming option for all HDMI devices. That said, the HD60 X is not an HDMI 2.1 device with 4K 120Hz passthrough support, which will be disappointing for some users.

Unlike older Elgato external capture cards, the company has listened to users by placing all ports on one side of the HD60 X, making the device more appealing to users. This is a device that will look good sitting on your desk, at least when compared to older external capture solutions from Elgato. Like other 4K compatible capture devices from Elgato, the HD60 X supports OBS, Streamlabs, Vmix, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Stream to YouTube, Twitch, Facebook Gaming and other streaming apps. Thos capture card can also be used with Elgato's 4K Capture Utility for gameplay recording. 

Like other external capture devices, the Elgato HD60X connects to your PC using USB 3.0 through a Type-C to Type-A connector. The device promises lag-free pass-through and supports capture resolutions like 2160p30, 1440p60, 1080p60, 1080p30, 1080i, 720p60, 576p, and 480p.

Press Release - Play and Create Without Compromise: Elgato Launches Next-Generation HD60 X Capture Card

Elgato, a leading provider of hardware and software for content creators, today announced the launch of HD60 X, a powerful new external capture card. Sporting state-of-the-art specs and seamless compatibility with the newest generation of game consoles, HD60 X equips anyone to stream and record their gameplay in the highest quality without limitations.

Building on the acclaimed HD60 S+, HD60 X features all-new architecture with rear ports to keep cables out of sight. The palm-sized, plug-and-play device connects to a console and sends video to both a gaming display and PC. You can then play high-fidelity games while livestreaming to Twitch or YouTube in Full HD 1080p60 quality, while simultaneously recording 1080p60 HDR10 footage to your hard drive. Instant Gameview technology syncs your broadcast with your gameplay, allowing you to monitor your capture feed with ultra-low latency.

Instant Gameview technology syncs your broadcast with your gameplay, allowing you to monitor your capture feed with ultra-low latency.

4K Capture Utility (4KCU), Elgato's powerful yet easy-to-use game capture software, is custom-built for creators looking to record without limitations. 4KCU captures all content - gameplay, cutscenes, soundtrack, chat - in high-resolution 1080p60 HDR10 or 4K30 quality with pristine 48kHz audio. If 4KCU is not set to record, Flashback Recording automatically caches several hours of gameplay so you can slide back in time to capture retroactively. Live Commentary enables you to save your voice as a separate track and adjust levels on the fly. To record while broadcasting live, Stream Link technology outputs HD60 X's native feed to 4KCU and third-party broadcast software like OBS Studio, so you can record clean, clutter-free gameplay while streaming with overlays, alerts, etc.

Gameplay recordings are saved directly to your hard drive in space-saving HEVC format. 4KCU's Library enables convenient file management tools, including Smart Folders to find and group recordings based on your search criteria. Files may be exported as AAF files for immediate editing in software such as Adobe Premiere or Vegas Pro. Fully compatible with PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and dual-PC setups, HD60 X makes it possible for creators to capture gameplay in the highest quality without compromising their next-gen gaming experience.
