Elgato Game Capture HD60 does not use USB 3.0

No, Elgato Game Capture HD60 uses USB 2.0.

Elgato Game Capture HD60 can record 1080p 60fps video up to 40Mbps.

As opposed to storage devices, capture cards on USB 3.0 are only truly supported by specific motherboard types. On many PCs and notebooks, USB 3.0 capture cards are either incompatible or massively unstable.

USB 2.0 does not have these limitations and thus is the best choice for Elgato Game Capture HD60.

Only Elgato Game Capture HD60 combines the broad support of USB 2.0 with the phenomenal video quality of a newest-generation 1080p60 hardware encoder.
