The latest external capturing hub enables a smooth streaming experience, even when playing the most demanding games in 4K resolutions. It can also record everything on microSD cards at 1080p and 60 fps.

E-sports and game streaming are very popular these days thanks to specialized sites like Twitch and Youtube Gaming. Gamers with high-end setups might not encounter streaming problems, but, for the less fortunate who use older PCs and still want to have a smooth experience, there are capture cards that can unload the processor and the GPU and take over the streaming/recording tasks altogether. AVerMedia is one of the prominent brands that offers this type of dedicated hardware, and its latest Live Gamer Portable Plus 2 external capture hub is here to provide the ultimate streaming experience.

The compact streaming hub only weighs 0.4 lb and comes with three modes:
•    PC Mode lets users connect the hub to their gaming devices and stream immediately
•    PC-Free Mode records streams or gaming sessions directly to a microSD card
•    Storage Mode enables the hub to work as a card reader, so users can transfer what they recorded to their preferred storage devices

The new Live Gamer Portable Plus 2 integrates a UHD pass through that ensures all 4K games run at 60 fps and have minimal lag during streams, while providing [email protected] recording capabilities at the same time. It comes with a USB 2.0 (UVC) interface, and supports HDMI 2.0 on both input and pass through connections. The hub also integrates an HDMI audio input, as well as two 3.5 mm jacks for headphones.

Those interested in buying the Live Gamer Portable Plus 2 can already find it at e-tailers like Newegg for $US218.70.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
