Very good as an entry level capture card

So you're looking to break into gaming content creation. It's going to be a hobby for you and you don't want to break the bank. A cheap but decent microphone is easy. There are great free video editors, audio editors, and recording software... But unless you're willing to risk an off brand capture card, an affordable capture card was never easy, until now.

I got this as a Kickstarter backer. For the record, I already own an Elgato card but was curious about this little thing, so I went for it. I've been pleasantly surprised by it's build quality and for live content, I actually prefer it over the significantly more expensive Elgato for the superior latency.

The lack of 1080p/60fps is a drawback but I'm more than content with 720p/60fps for streaming. 1080p/30fps is there if that's your thing but it's all personal preference. Given that this card costs less than half of what my Elgato costs, I can completely forgive the quality limits.

In future iterations of the product/Genki Arcade, it would be nice to possibly see DLSS be togglable if such a thing would be possible with how it all runs. Either way, some upscaling filters baked into the software would really go a long way. I'd say the lack of options in the software is the only reason I'm docking a star here.

All in all, a great card that offers great value for money in a market that is saturated with expensive alternatives

Genki

Hi,
Thanks for Reviewing our product,
Don't know if you already know, if you punch in the Konami code up up down down left right left right B A, you can unlock the resolution options to scale up and down on your own, but might introduce a bit more latency, but its there for you to experiment a bit.

Have Fun,
Team Genki

Overall very happy

I am not a streamer nor expert, but I wanted something cheap to start. I was very surprised with this product, Took me 1 min to set up in OBS Stream lab, i can record and play full screen, the delay is very good. I could play Monster Hunter rise without a problem. I am seriously surprised and I'd recommend this product. Very good alternative of elgato. For my current need this is really the best product I could wish for.

Very nice!

The device is compact and easy to install, however I would like for it to have come with a cord compatible with my computer so I don't have to buy my own.

Great device for its price!

Highly recommend for casual gamers and if you want to stream on discord or even just have your gameplay on your desktop screen without taking an HDMI port or a full display. I am using it now on a corner of my screen as I do other stuff on the PC. I enjoy streaming to discord for friends since I never could stream to them from the switch.

There are two options, one for performance and one for resolution.

I am finding the resolution one to work just fine for me.
