Today marks the launch of Elgato's 4K60 Pro, the first "consumer-priced" capture card that will grab 4K video at 60 frames per second. It works great, but its PC requirements are as steep as its $US400 ($530) price tag.

Streamers seeking more control over their broadcasts often use external keypads to do things like switching scenes and controlling chat. Elgato's $US150 ($202) Stream Deck aims to replace those makeshift solutions with 15 dedicated LCD buttons capable of handling up to 210 different actions. It's quite fancy.
The capture card market isn't a particularly flashy segment when it comes to consumer tech. Once you've bought a capture card, you don't need to upgrade for years. They don't cost a great deal of money compared to high-end graphics cards or VR headsets, and advancements in GPUs have meant many PC gamers record and stream without a capture card at all.
So how do you stand out? Elgato's answer is to offer all the same functionality, but faster. USB 3.0 faster, to be precise.
