Elgato recently released the HD60 S+ an external video capture card that lets gamers and content creators play games at 4K 60fps with HDR10 and record or stream the gameplay at 1080p 60fps with HDR10. Playing games at 4K 60fps HDR10 is pretty much a demanding task and you definitely need the best GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card (or two) just to enjoy playing games at this high resolution. The Elgato HD60 S+ is a plug and play device and an updated or upgraded version of the non-plus HD60 S. You can also capture 4K videos but only at 30fps. If you want to capture 4K60 HDR, you might want to check out the Elgato 4K60 Pro MK.2 instead. Check out more features of the HD60 S+ from the official news release below.
Elgato HD60 S+ Capture Card – Play and Create without Compromise
Elgato, the leading provider of hardware and software for content creators, today announced the launch of HD60 S+, an external video capture card that lets content creators play high-fidelity console games in stunning 4K60 HDR10 while simultaneously streaming or recording gameplay in 1080p60 HDR10. It’s easy to get set up and streaming with HD60 S+ thanks to a simple USB 3.0 connection and full compatibility with today’s most prominent streaming applications including OBS Studio, Streamlabs OBS, and XSplit. Accompanied by powerful Elgato 4KCU recording software, HD60 S+ is ideal for content creators looking to grow audiences on Twitch, YouTube, and Mixer.
Building upon the original hugely popular HD60 S, HD60 S+ allows 4K60 HDR10 zero-lag passthrough, with onboard video downscaling to enable streaming to any platform in industry standard full HD 1080p60 quality and recording unlimited 1080p60 HDR10 footage to your hard drive. HD60 S+ also benefits from ultra-low latency Instant Gameview technology, keeping gameplay, mic, webcam, and other sources perfectly synched.
Elgato’s 4KCU software powers HD60 S+, offering exclusive features to help you get the most out of it.
