Elgato has revealed their first “consumer-priced” capture card that is capable of grabbing gameplay in stunning 4K 60 FPS. Say hello to the Elgato 4K60 Pro.
The previous-gen 4K capture cards could only take in 30 FPS, so the 4K60 Pro will allow normal gamers to take their streaming and capturing to the next level. This professional-grade capture solution will allow you to grab beautifully-smooth 60 FPS footage from any console or gaming PC capable of playing games in 4K. This includes the current generation PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
“Elgato Gaming is dedicated to giving content creators the tools they need to succeed and stay ahead of the curve,” said Julian Fest, General Manager of Elgato Gaming. “4K60 Pro ushers in a new era of 4K viewership by giving the power to produce Ultra HD content to the public. Content creators are now able to surpass traditional broadcast media and give viewers the eye candy they crave.”

4K 60 FPS video capture isn’t an easy task to accomplish, so don’t be surprised by the above requirements. Furthermore, it’s not only about 4K; even if you’re gaming at a resolution below that, the Elgato 4K60 Pro is more than capable of processing those feeds as well, and you can record that footage at higher frame rates.
The new 4K60 Pro costs $400. If you’re interested in purchasing one for yourself, you can find the shop links here.
