    That's nice that Elgatto is following in the footsteps of Aver since they have a capture card that does this very thing. I just watched a video about the Aver card and they were waiting for Elgato to follow suit.

    And what about H.265 support.You can increase the bitrate as much as you want, H.264 can deliver terrible quality, there's a reason Netflix/Amazon Prime, Youtube/Google/Stadia are all using H.265 or equivalent(vp9 for google), and it's not just lower bandwidth.

    Honestly, for streaming or simply capture, I don't think the majority really needs this to anymore.
    GPU H264 might be bad, but it is enough for most users, H265 even better with new nvidia and video enconders being able to do 4K/60 H265.
    Unless we really want to record without any penalty on the performance that today is just very small, or console users.
    I don't see the reason for this at all.

    Altough I would love to have something like this, since I do performance some benchmarking videos, and it would be nice to display the real framerate and not the framerate + software recorder on the back.

    Yeah there is only 2 cards that I am aware of that support the H.265 that are available for purchase and they are from Aver 1 being their 4K capture card and the other being a 1080p60. To me h.265 at this point is for those who want that extra mile just like those who want to upgrade their PCs every year or so.
