The folks over at Razer have just added yet another product their their arsenal, the Ripsaw HD. The Ripsaw HD is Razer’s attempt to take on Elgato and win the hearts of streamers and video gamers alike.
The new capture card records and streams video at 1080p 60FPS and does feature 4K passthrough for folks who really don’t want to skimp on their displays. Like competing options, the Ripsaw HD supports PCs and consoles alike, featuring HDMI input, built-in mixing, USB 3.0 and a whole lot more. Razer says that the Ripsaw HD also features zero latency for folks who want to actively monitor the audio incoming from microphones as well. It also features integrations with popular software and streaming sites as well such as YouTube, Twitch, OBS, Mixer, Steamlabs, and XSplit.
Sadly the device lacks any form of Chroma lighting. However, like many of Razer’s recent launches, the Ripsaw comes in a very aggressive, yet modern style to cater enthusiastic content creators. Below are the technical specifications of the device.
