The First Commercial 2.1 USB Capture Card Is Out Now

The AVerMedia Live Gamer ULTRA 2.1 The Next Evolution Of Capture Cards

This has been a long time coming. It has been three years since the next-gen consoles were released, and HDMI 2.1 is now a common compatibility for modern consoles and PCs.  The problem was that capture cards did not evolve for the next generation and have been behind in HDMI 2.1 technology. The wait is over.  AVerMedia Technologies, a leading audio and video solutions provider, announced the launch of Live Gamer ULTRA 2.1 (GC553G2), the world-leading HDMI 2.1 USB capture card. This state-of-the-art device aims to revolutionize the streaming experience for gamers across the globe.

Shown earlier this year at Computex 2023, Live Gamer ULTRA 2.1 showed off what this card can do.  Game streamers have been eagerly awaiting a solution to meet the demands of the latest games and next-gen consoles, and the Live Gamer ULTRA 2.1 is here to fulfill that need. This high-performance capture card leverages the power of HDMI 2.1 technology, offering uncompromising video quality with up to 4K144 pass-through HDR/VRR and ensuring that every moment of the gameplay is transmitted with stunning clarity and fluidity. Additionally, it supports up to 4K60 capture, allowing streamers to capture their memorable gaming moments in pristine clarity.


Besides leveraging the latest HDMI 2.1 technology, AVerMedia’s proprietary software, Gaming Utility, sets the Live Gamer ULTRA 2.1 apart. This versatile tool allows streamers to customize the Live Gamer ULTRA 2.1’s RGB lighting. It syncs it up with major RGB ecosystems, enabling streamers to infuse their personal touch into their gaming setups. As importantly, the Live Gamer ULTRA 2.1 also comes with a party chat feature that facilitates streamers to interact with teammates and effortlessly record voice chats during gameplay.

The Live Gamer ULTRA 2.1 is officially out now and can be purchased on Amazon. You can also purchase it directly on AVerMedia’s official eStore, where you can exclusively get a FREE pack of Elena playing cards and a 25% OFF discount on USB Condenser Microphone Live Streamer MIC 350 by clicking here
