Razer has recently detailed the Razer Ripsaw HD, an external capture device that records in 1080p and 60 frames-per-second (FPS) with 4K, 60FPS passthrough.
In short, this device is perfect for guys like me who have an Xbox One X or PS4 Pro and record guide videos but also want to keep playing in 4K resolution where possible. Razer doesn’t disagree, but a press release says the Ripsaw HD is also suited for streamers who want to play in 4K but present a 1080p, 60FPS offering to those along for the ride.
“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,” said Razer’s Min-Liang Tan. “Viewers will love the Full HD streams, while broadcasters can enjoy their games as they were intended with the 4K pass-through.”
The Razer Ripsaw HD is available from 11 April on Razer’s website, and worldwide from retailers later this year. It’ll retail for $159.99 USD, $279.95 AUD or $299.95 NZD. Specs are below.
