Elgato 4K60 Pro Mk.2 Capture Card Review

Rating: 8.5.

Elgato, now in partnership with Corsair, is known for its high-quality content creation and streaming products, but surely its current line-up covers all the bases already? Well, you’re right to think that but the company has taken its best capture card and given it one hell of a makeover! The original 4K60 Pro, released in 2017, was already a monster of a card and Elgato has just given it a full hardware redesign.

Featuring the ability to capture and passthrough HDR10, 1440p at 144Hz, 1080p at 240Hz and, the biggest improvement – the ability to capture footage with the card via multiple software options at the same time – this card has some serious specs. Just how good is it? Let’s find out.

Pros

  • Plug and play.
  • HDR10 capture.
  • Low profile size.
  • £130 cheaper than its predecessor.
  • Multiple program usage.

Cons

  • No backplate or logo LED.
  • Only comes with 1x HDMI 2.0 cable.
  • 4K Capture software is very basic.

KitGuru says: Elgato has been a dominant force in the streaming/content creation world and they have just reaffirmed their status. The 4K60 Pro Mk.2 packs some well needed new features into a tiny body with much better thermals. If you’re a streamer or creator that games/films above 1080p, this is an excellent capture card.
