Elgato HD 60 Gaming Capturing System

Release Date in United States: 08/17/2019

Elgato has brought us a gaming capturing card device which is second to none when capturing your gaming ventures online, multiplayer or in campaign mode.


The Elgato HD 60 will capture HDMI video input and audio. It will capture it in 60 frames per second. This is pretty much Rock Star quality. If you have a YouTube gaming capture video page or offer a gaming video capture blog, Elgato HD 60 is a must and will eliminate many of the hurtles you overcome to bring your gaming videos to the masses.

The positive of the gaming capture card device would be it does come with a USB and HDMI cable. It also offers downloadable video editing software for gamers to edit the content they capture and upload it to the web.

The negative (as of this article) would be the price. The Elgato HD 60 is on the spendy side. Retailing at around the $200 mark puts this device out of reach of many. Possibly rightfully so, but the Elgato HD 60 is an investment verses a splurge. Also it takes some workaround to get your audio included within the capture. The basic mentality when capturing should be what goes through the HDMI is captured and what does not will not be captured.

  • 1080p Capture with 60 fps
