Elgato tantalized fans as early as Gamescom 2017 with the news that it was gearing up to launch a capture card that could record game footage at 4K resolutions and 60 frames per second (FPS). Outside of acknowledging the 4K60 Pro's existence, however, Elgato was mum on details at the time. However, now we have bot ha price and a release date.
In a lone tweet, Elgato revealed that the 4K60 Pro will begin shipping on November 21 for $399.

While that might seem a steep sum, it's a relatively low cost for 4K at 60 FPS, particularly when compared to other capture cards with similar capabilities. In a follow-up tweet, Elgato confirmed that the card will also support high framerate passthrough for lower resolutions, including 1080p at 240 FPS and 1440p at 144 FPS.
If the 4K60 Pro sounds like it's up your alley, it's up for preorder now directly from Elgato.
