The new Elgato 4K60 Pro MK.2 is out, offering improved performance over the previous design. The new model offers 4K60 HDR10 capture, ultra-low latency Instant Gameview technology, up to 240Hz passthrough, and more. The small form factor design should be a blessing for fans of smaller cases and clean builds, and the card is already available for shipping.
The new PCIe capture card is less than half the size of its predecessor and costs $249. You can find the 4K60 and the other Elgato models right here on Amazon. The Elgato 4K60 Pro MK.2 is also backed by a two-year warranty and the CORSAIR & Elgato worldwide customer service and technical support network.
Expanding on the 4K60 Pro, the 4K60 Pro MK.2 allows streamers to capture the best resolution and the best dynamic range possible. 4K HDR10 capture at 60 fps (frames per second) lets you play high-fidelity games while simultaneously streaming to Twitch in 1080p at 60 fps and recording 4K60 HDR10 footage to your hard drive. The Instant Gameview technology lets you monitor your capture feed with ultra-low latency, syncing your broadcast with your gameplay without having to mess with settings. There’s also support for different resolution and refresh rate combinations, like 1080p 240Hz and 1440p 144Hz.
Users can play in HDR while capturing in SDR thanks to advanced hardware tonemapping, ensuring perfect color reproduction without putting stress on your CPU. Support for multiple capture feeds means you can simultaneously send video to multiple apps, such as OBS and Elgato’s 4KCU recording software. The multi-device support enables several 4K60 Pro MK.2 cards to be slotted into the same PC – so you can capture video from multiple cameras, consoles, and computers at once.
On the software side, the 4KCU software works side by side with 4K60 Pro MK.2, offering improved flexibility and control. Flashback Recording enables you to save your gameplay retroactively with convenient DVR-like controls, and Live Commentary allows you to record microphone audio as a separate track. Combined, these tools enable you to edit and arrange gameplay, game audio, and microphone audio independently in post-production.
