Simple really, gamers don't wake up until 4PM so then there was a flood of heat for the deal.

Think this one (4K60) just captures video, it doesn't do any encoding. The CPU or GPU still need to encode the video stream.
Come on don't be clapped. We have MSI afterburner, OBS and tonnes of free recording software. Can someone enlighten me as to why splashing £200 on this is worth it? Just to record at 4K when you don't even have a 4K monitor? Then what's the point, Jeff on his workstation 4K isn't going to tune into George's l33t 360 no scope montage is he.

4K console capture, 2 PC gaming/streaming setup, etc.

Professional/enthusiast solution for professional/enthusiast needs.

This is more for recording console gameplay, such as the nintendo switch. It's possible to record 4k without having a 4k monitor,just because you don't play at 4k doesn't mean others may not want to watch 4k content, especially with the new consoles which will be coming out soon this would be very useful.

I'm 99% sure it's got an on-board h.265 and h.264 encoder chip. It's how it can hit 4k60 with HDR10 without killing your hard drive.
None of the streaming sites allow 4k streams so pointless in that area.

True, but I'm sure soon they will support higher resolutions, but I suppose it can still be used for recording 4k, which is nice.

Why is it relatively expensive then I'd there is no fancy processor on card to do the encoding

The Elgato 4k cam link (used by streamers who want to use a dslr camera as a webcam) upscales the outputted image. So even if you're only streaming at 1080p, your 4k webcam looks crispy.

I'm not sure if that would also apply to capturing 4k gaming footage?

PC streaming can easily be done from a single PC nowadays. As long as it's beefy enough.
The new version of NVIDIA NVENC can handle both the stream encoding and simultaneous local recording without affecting performance.

Plus, OBS is finally playing nice with Windows, not eating up max resources. All you need to do is turn on Windows Game Mode (a big no-no in the past) and start OBS in Admin mode.

You'll still be better off using a separate streaming PC if you want to squeeze out every last frame for FPS games, but it's not as big a deal as it once was.

Good question!
they recommend it’s used with a minimum GTX10xx series card so you can use NVENC to actually be able to process the incoming video.
I think the software is good, I guess it's quite expensive as developing a product like this is quite expensive and isn't going to sell by the bucket load.
