In the world of video game capturing, two brands have been dominating the market for many decades: Elgato and AverMedia. However, a new competitor is entering this market: NZXT, known for its good-looking computer peripherals. NZXT is adding a game capture card to its hardware with its newest Signal 4K30 and Signal HD60 cards. These cards capture footage of your gameplay and streaming cheaper than the competitors brand.
The Signal 4K30 capture card has ability to record game capture itself up to 4K resolution with a capped of 30fps. However, using Passthrough in which you record the game using 3rd-party software such as OBS or Streamlabs from a different machine, you can get up to 4K resolution and 60fps. There is also no problem recording 60fps for 1080p for both capture and passthrough. It also offers handy features such as HDR10 Capture & Passthrough, Ultra-Low Latency, 1440p144 Passthrough, 1080p240 Passthrough, Ultrawide Support and using the latest HDMI 2.0 input and output.
The lower tier Signal HD60 is capable of recording video at 1080p resolution up to 60 frames per second. It also has the ability to passthrough 4K-resolution footage.
The NZXT Signal 4K30 is priced at $179.99, while the NZXT Signal HD60 is at $139.99 for United States and Canada. We do not know if it is available in the Philippines yet, but we will make sure to get one of this to give you an in-depth review and show its comparison with other game capture cards we have.
