Razer announces gaming capture card targeted at streamers

Posted on March 31, 2016 by Fionna Schweit

Razer has been announcing a ton of new products this year, with a series of gaming laptop, and a whole boat load of peripherals. So it came as not much of a surprise to me when I hear that they had accounced the Razer Ripsaw a new box aimed at making streaming and capturing from a console as simple as possible. In a 44 second video posted to Razers channel user got a chance to see how simple it really is to plug in the Ripsaw and get right back to gaming.

The Ripsaw is designed with gamers in mind, and can capture up to 1080p and 60fps meaning that you can capture all of those frames your console is putting out for some sweet 60fps YouTube action. The Ripsaw has both DMI and component input though it does need an adapter to use the component one, it also has USB 3.0 port to go to your pc. Razers advertising claims that by using USB 3.0 you can transfer uncompressed 1080p 60 Hz game footage to your PC with virtually no latency. If this is true its a pretty impressive feat, and I would be interested to get my hands on one for testing.

You can check out the new Ripsaw for 180$ on the Razer store
