Corsair’s Elgato has introduced its new capture card aimed at professional gamers and streamers who need to record either HDR10 or 240 Hz content. Dubbed the 4K60 Pro MK.2, at the moment it is the only consumer-grade capture card capable of capturing HDR10 content.

The Elgato 4K60 Pro MK.2 is half the size of its predecessor, yet its capabilities have been vastly improved thanks to new hardware and software. The card enables streamers to capture videos a 4K at 60 Hz resolution with HDR10 while simultaneously streaming to Twitch in 1080p at 60 Hz. Furthermore, it also can it can capture 1080p at 240 Hz as well as 1440p at 144 Hz videos in dual-PC setups. The maximum encoding bitrate supported by the 4K60 Pro MK.2 card is 140 Mbps, which is higher than that supported by Ultra-HD Blu-ray discs.

Right now, the Elgato 4K60 Pro MK.2 is the only consumer-oriented capture card to support 4Kp60 with HDR10, so the board will likely get popular among PC and console gamers/streamers who play titles supporting this HDR transport.

The Elgato 4K60 Pro MK.2 card is available directly from Corsair/Elgato as well as various retailers worldwide. In the U.S., the board carries a $249.99 price tag.

    That seems strangely reasonable?

    That’s been my impression from elgato’s stack. They’re a real breath of fresh air. Video input options have been janky and expensive for as long as there’s been video to input. Reply

    That HDR10 picture is just so terrible to show off HDR10 gimmick. lol Reply

    Gimmick? HDR10/10+/DV/HLG is probably the single best image quality improvement for media/gaming since the jump from VHS to DVD! Reply

    You are joking right? That image is literally just turning brightness up. Hell it even looks like the coating on monitor went from glare to anti-glare coating. lol Reply

    HDR10 nor Dolby Vision HDR or HDR10+ are gimmicks though; they make a significant difference—much more than 4K & 8K. Reply

    How can it do 1440p 144hz or 1080 240hz on HDMI?? Don't you need DisplayPort for that? Reply
