The TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro captures an iF Design award

The TUF Gaming lineup of products has long supported gamers with robust, reliable, and powerful gaming hardware at a price that won’t break the bank. One of the latest additions to the family, the TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro, has been awarded a prestigious iF Design Award thanks to its incredible engineering and versatility.

High refresh, high resolution capture and passthrough

Thanks to HDMI 2.1, the TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro has the bandwidth to support lossless high resolution and high refresh rate passthrough of up to a 4K 144Hz HDR signal, with the ability to capture up to 4K 60 FPS. Or if you want to provide yourself and your audience with a high refresh rate experience, both 1440p and 1080p capture resolutions support 120 FPS, with passthrough of 144Hz and 240Hz respectively.

At all resolutions, the TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro also supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) passthrough, ensuring your local video signal never has lag or screen tearing. It also has an onboard processor to support up to 4K upscaling and downscaling, ensuring that you can play at whatever resolution you’d like, and send your stream whatever resolution the platform supports. And with support for both consoles and PC graphics cards, no matter how you play, you can easily stream your adventures to the world.

The TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro just requires a single USB 3.2 Gen 2 port plugged into the capture PC, and is instantly ready to start sending live gameplay to your favorite streaming software. While it is a certified OBS compatible device, this capture card also supports Streamlabs and Xsplit Gamecaster, among many other services, without any separate drivers.

Designed with consoles and PC players in mind

While some capture devices — especially PCIe expansion based cards — are built specifically for PC gamers, the use of HDMI 2.1 allows the TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro to work seamlessly with PC and consoles alike. We’ve even made sure to add dual 3.5mm headphone jacks for both the headset and gamepad so that your audience can hear both your banter and gameplay. HDMI 2.1 also ensures seamless compatibility with both current gen consoles and the latest generation of graphics cards.

This design allows for a painless setup process. Just plus the USB 3.2 Gen 2 cable into your PC, connect an HDMI 2.1 cable into the “HDMI IN” line from the PC or console you want to capture, and run a second HDMI 2.1 cable to your monitor or TV, and you’re off to the races.

Solid construction with tasteful RGB accents

One of the design choices that may have helped the TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro secure an iF Design Award is its all-aluminum and classically TUF Gaming chassis. This all-metal build not only helps keep your capture card safe when you’re on the move, it also keeps thermals under control without the need for an active cooling fan.

And no piece of gaming hardware would be complete without at least a taste of RGB. The TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro features a lighting strip along the front of its chassis, which also serves as a notification system should it run into any unexpected errors. During normal operation, you can easily control both RGB controls and encoding options via the Video Capture Console, a dedicated software dashboard.

An all-in-one gaming companion

It’s no wonder why the TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro captured the iF Design team’s attention. From its solid all-aluminum construction, versatile USB 3.2 Gen 2 connection design, and flexible range of supported resolutions and refresh rates, this is a capture card that can fit into nearly any gamer’s existing setup. If you’ve been considering capturing or streaming your gameplay but haven’t found the right hardware, consider picking up a TUF Gaming Capture Box-4K Pro to level up your battle station.
