EVGA released the XR1 lite, a scaled down version of the XR1 that does 1080p60 capture and 4K passthrough for under $70. Let’s find out if it knows how to Linux.

Driver Install: Plug it in.
1. Add a Video Capture source.
2. Give it a wholly original name.
3. Configure your resolution, colour, and framerate etc.
Three-way comparison: NDI / Blackmagic Design DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K / EVGA XR1 lite 1080p 60 DNxHD 440.
Three-way comparison: NDI / Blackmagic Design DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K / EVGA XR1 lite 720p 60.
4K Passthrough: The EVGA XR1 lite shows up like any other monitor with no perceivable lag.
At the end of the day we have a USB3 encoder that does 1080p60 capture and 4K passthrough for under $70. That’s around $40 less than the Elgato Cam Link 4K. Linux support is plug-and-play and it does everything it claims on the tin.
