It’s undeniable that streaming is the megatrend of our time and Razer’s Ripsaw HD capture card is aimed squarely at that market.
The Razer Ripsaw HD is a stylish little external capture card that does Full 1080p HD video capture 60 FPS. It joins Razer’s growing family of broadcaster products which include the Razer Kiyo camera and Razer Seiren Microphone.
“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.

The Ripsaw HD is compatible with both PC and consoles focusing on simplicity of use. An HDMI input allows any device to connect to the Ripsaw HD while the USB 3.0 output for video connects to a streaming PC.
One standout feature of the Ripsaw HD is 4K 60 FPS passthrough which allows streamers to play their content in 4K while simultaneously capturing in 1080p.
The Ripsaw also has built-in audio mixing so you can game and gab with zero latency. The mixer also allows you to use one mic across two PCs which is undoubtedly handy for game chat as well as stream audio.
The Razer Ripsaw HD is compatible with most popular streaming software such as Open Broadcaster, Streamlabs, XSplit and of course Twitch and YouTube.
