Razer’s new external capture card - 4K pass through while streaming at 1080p.
Razer has introduced some seriously stiff competition for the Elgato's Game Capture HD60 S, and at a slightly cheaper price, introducing the RAZER Ripsaw HD. This external multi-platform capture card, records video in Full HD 1080p at 60 frames per second. It also has 4K 60fps pass through, which means you can play games at 4K, if your hardware can handle the extra stress, while sharing 1080p game play with your audience. That is a major plus if you stream a lot so that you get to enjoy the higher resolution.,

The RAZER Ripsaw HD will feature built-in audio mixing, meaning users can pipe their microphone audio through the card with "zero latency and no syncing delays.," stated by RAZER.
