It ain't easy being a streamer. You often need a webcam and capture card, and depending on what kind of streamer you are, you may also have to worry about asking for tips every stream, playing dress-up in order to hit subscriber goals, etc. The point is, streaming is a lot of work, and having the hardware for the job is step number one. That's where Razer comes in.
Whether you're a YouTube streamer, Twitch affiliate, or Chaturbate Gaming auteur, Razer has you covered with its new plug-and-play Razer Ripsaw X capture card and Razer Kiyo X webcam. Here are the key details for both devices:
- The Kiyo X USB webcam can stream at 30fps in FHD, or 60fps at 720p. It costs $79.
- The Ripsaw X capture card can handle up to 4K at 30fps via HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.0 connections. It costs $139.
And if you want to really amp up your Razer streamer™ look, consider grabbing a Razer Iskur gaming chair to complete the overall aesthetic. Though check out our best webcams for Twitch roundup before shelling out big money to the green-and-black snake guys.

You need gameplay to run a gameplay stream, and that's what this capture card is here to help with.
