Razer’s Ripsaw HD capture card tries to challenge Elgato for entry-level game streaming

Razer is taking another opportunity in the broadcast market with its updated Ripsaw HD capture card, which seems to challenge Elgato's own entry-level HD60 S with a lower price and 4K video passage.

Like the original Ripsaw, Razer's goal with the Ripsaw HD is to make the transmission setup as simple as possible for the streamers. For that purpose, basically, everything is still integrated into the Ripsaw HD, including a microphone and a headphone jack for audio mixing.

The configuration is just as simple: simply connect your game console or PC to one end of the HDMI input, a monitor to play the game to the HDMI output and its transmission through a PC USB-C port to transmit data to send to its viewers. (However, the Ripsaw HD still needs a PC to send a captured game, it can not record to an external storage device like the AVerMedia 2 Plus.

But where the normal Ripsaw – and Razer's main competition, the HD60 S – only 1080p2 transfer is supported on the side of the gameplay, the upgraded version of Ripsaw HD is compatible with the 4K transfer, so you can still play with a better resolution while transmitting.That said, if you really want to transmit in 4K, you must activate in other places, like Elgato's 4K60 Pro card.

Still, with $ 159.99, Razer manages to reduce Elgato's price for the entry level side of the market, while offering more features that the HD60 S. And, ultimately, more competition to stream and capture easier can only benefit players looking to give it a try.
