The AVerMedia Live Gamer ULTRA 2.1 Capture Card, Model GC553G2

Streaming is very popular, but can be daunting if you want to do it right.  It’s not quite as simple as pushing a button on your PC to stream your gaming to your friends, unless you have the right hardware.  The AVerMedia HDMI 2.1 capture card is an example of what you need to be able to make your stream look good.  It can capture 4k video and audio from your game, as well as audio from your microphone so your audience can actually hear you.

You will need to find software such as OBS to handle the actual capturing of your gameplay, the AVerMedia HDMI 2.1 is a USB-C passthrough device, which sits between your monitor and GPU.  It handles all the hardware task but the software and streaming service are all up to you.  If you are a fan of RECentral, you should be aware that AVerMedia is still working on getting that software to work with this capture card, but OBS works perfectly.
