Livestreaming games is a big business these days, and Razer knows it. The gear designer has unveiled the Ripsaw, a capture card that's all about sharing your console and PC gaming exploits on the likes of Twitch or YouTube. It's built to work "out of the box" with common streaming apps like Open Broadcaster Software and XSplit, and its combination of a USB 3.0 connection and audio inputs should do justice to both the video (you'll get uncompressed 1080p, 60FPS footage) and your commentary track. You get all the cables you need, too. The aim is to create a box that meets the needs of veteran streamers, but won't intimidate newcomers.

The Ripsaw is available now for $180, although that's not the total cost. You'll also need a reasonably powerful Windows PC, with both a 4th-generation Core processor and a mid-range graphics card. With that said, you probably already check those boxes if you're interested in the first place -- this is for people who either stream for a living or are already gaming enthusiasts.
