Elgato Gaming teases their first custom ICs - What do they have planned?

Elgato is one of the biggest names when it comes to game streaming, creating tools which range from capture cards to system management solutions, green screens, light and more. If you are a streamer and need some hardware for s professional setup, Elgato is one of the few companies that can provide gamers with the full package. 

Computex 2019 starts next week, and Elgato plans to reveal something new there, teasing the company's first "custom IC", which is said to be a "from the ground up solution" for... something. Yeah, it's a little vague, but we can make a few guesses at what Elgato's upcoming product could be. 

For starts, Elgato currently lacks an HDR compatible capture device, leaving streamers within the realms of SDR. While this isn't a problem for most users, it is a negative that could be levelled at their products. Secondly, Elgato could be working on a solution which offers a built-in video encoder, greatly simplifying the video capture/streaming process. Those are just two examples of what Elgato could be planning for their next-generation of products. 

Alternatively, Elgato could finally be upping the ante with some RGB goodness on their capture cards. Are there any RGB capture cards on the market? That would be custom, right? Joking aside, it will be interesting to see what Elgato has cooking at Computex.

I would love to see a company come out with a capture card that does all the encoding on the card, so it doesn't use your cpu or gpu in the likes of OBS.

That is one of the major issue's I think for Streamers and people creating videos using a capture card, as the pc always has to either have a good high end cpu or a decent mid range gpu to handle the encoding.

There might be some cards out there that do it, but how much do they cost?

Is the cost something that most starters looking to break in to streaming or video production would be willing to pay?Quote
