They may have just created a load of fresh excitement with their all new Razer Lian LI Razer Edition PC case, but it seems Razer aren’t done yet and as of today, gamers can look forward to another product on the horizon. See, the Razer Ripsaw HD has been announced and it’s an all new and compact external capture card that promises professional grade features to meet the demands of broadcasters.

Those who choose to jump in and purchase Razer’s latest product will find live streaming and recording feels silky smooth, with video captured in full 1080p at 60 frames per second, whilst a pass through will see maximum supported resolutions bring 4K and 60 frames per second. For those that don’t get on with mumbo jumbo internal side of things, that means gamers can now broadcast their games in the highest resolutions possible with smooth results throughout, and here’s what Razer themselves have to say about it.

“With the Ripsaw HD joining our extensive Broadcaster range, streamers now have a capture card ready to broadcast the latest games at high resolution and framerates from both their PC or console,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Viewers will love the Full HD streams, while broadcasters can enjoy their games as they were intended with the 4K pass-through.”

The Razer Ripshaw HD is a streamer’s dream with the external capture card compatible with both PC and console, and with just a single USB 3.0 connection and the usual input and output HDMI ports, there is very little hassle in getting things set up. The Razer Ripshaw HD promises no sync delays for microphone, and with a microphone input directly on the device, there is no further software required alongside the Razer Ripshaw HD to record and broadcast your voice, therefore allowing in-game chat whilst streaming.

Mix this with the recent releases of the Razer Kiyo streaming camera and the Razer Seirẽn Elite microphone and you’ll find yourself suited and booted for the ultimate streaming set-up.

Of course, as with any Razer product, the price point you’ll be needing to splash out to grab the Razer Ripshaw HD isn’t the cheapest, with a $159.99 USD and €169.99 MSRP price point. Should you want to jump in on the whole idea regardless then you can do so on April 11th 2019.
