If you are trying a resolution or frame rate that isn't working, either via passthrough or recording, please contact our support team. We will be able to test those settings internally.

 
High Frame Rate Support - 144Hz, etc
 

Elgato Game Capture 4K60 Pro is capable of passthrough as well as capture of formats such as 1440p 144 Hz.

These formats however do not have industry standard timings, and as such, may not work perfectly. In rare cases, using a custom or edited EDID may be needed.

Please see this article for more detailed information about a 1440p 144 Hz setup:

If you have a high refresh rate display and Elgato Game Capture 4K60 Pro is not properly passing through the signal or capturing, please contact our Technical Support team.

 
Pixel Clock Support - Up to 600 Mhz


Elgato Game Capture 4K60 Pro supports signals over HDMI 2.0 up to 600 Mhz pixel clock.

You can manually calculate the pixel clock of the resolution and frame rate, to see if it will work with

Please Note: Even if the pixel clock is below 600 Mhz, we are not guaranteeing that particular resolution and frame rate combination will work with Elgato Game Capture 4K60 Pro.
