Today, Razer announced one heck of a streaming solution, the external capture Razer Ripsaw. The little box offers HDMI passthrough and component input, as well as stereo audio and mic mix in, but the killer feature is the USB 3.0 capture of raw 1080p60fps. Naturally, the Ripsaw supports both OBS and XSplit.

Razer Ripsaw checks every box for being able to capture and stream from both the current and last gen consoles (including the tricky PS3), and with 1080p60fps for making serious archives, top level YouTube videos, and so on. The supported capture resolutions of 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 576p, 576i, 480p, and 480i is great for everything current and recent, but classic consoles could be an issue.

Still with all of this coming for just $179.99 (179.99 EUR), the Ripsaw is like to be a huge success. (The Razer Ripsaw is available now. Order it here.) It also fits in well with Razer's Supported Streamer Program.
