Razer wants to make its way into the lucrative game streaming market, hoping to challenge Corsair, the owners of Elgato Gaming, with their new Ripsaw HD capture card, which hopes to offer steady 1080p 60FPS streaming alongside features like UHD pass-through and microphone/headset connectivity. 

Thanks to their Ripsaw’s use of HDMI 2.0, their device offers compatibility with a wide range of gaming products, from PC to consoles such as the PS4, Xbox One Nintendo Switch and basically any modern HDMI device. The box supports a wide range of resolutions, including 4K, 1440p, 1080p, 720p and 480p, which covers a wide spread of potential devices. 

At launch, Razer will support Open Broadcaster Software (OBS), Mixers, Streamlabs, XSplit, Twitch and YouTube, acting as a simple plug and play solution to game streaming. This box connects to a user’s PC using USB 3.0 using a Type-C to Type-A cable.
