AVerMedia Live Gamer Duo GC570D Review

Rating: 9.0.

AVerMedia released a new capture card earlier this year that is going to make a lot of streamers happy, and for good reason too. The Live Gamer DUO GC750D comes in at a very reasonable RRP of £249.99, with two inputs and one passthrough, 4K60, 1080p240 and internal downscaling to 1080p, so you will want to stick around for this one!

Pros:

  • Much cheaper than buying multiple capture cards and uses less resources.
  • Best price multiple input capture card available.
  • 2160p60, 1440p144, 1080p240 input and passthrough capability.
  • Internally downscales input signal to 1080p, which means less work for the streaming PC.
  • Modern design, looks nice if you have a transparent side panel.
  • RECentral software is very easy to use and has good features.
  • Easy to setup in other broadcasting/recording software such as OBS Studio.

Cons:

  • Metal housing can cause damage to cable if installed in lowest PCIe lane.
  • RGB LED section is very limited in terms of customisation and we can clearly see each LED.
  • Does not record 4K footage as it downscales to 1080p.

KitGuru says: If you’re a content creator that is only focused on recording the best quality gameplay or PC footage for your YouTube channel then this is definitely not the card for you, there’s plenty of single input cards like the Elgato 4K60Pro Mk2 or even AverMedia’s Live Gamer 4K HDR. However; if you’re a live streamer first and foremost, that uses a camera instead of a webcam, that also wants the occasional bit of footage recorded this is an absolute must have in our opinion.
