On November 10, 2020, Apple announced the availability of Macs based on a new architecture known as Apple Silicon.
Although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple’s latest operating system, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. You can find out more about the compatibility of our products with macOS Big Sur here.
This article outlines the support of Elgato products on Apple Silicon and the M1 chip. We are working to ensure support across our current products, but time frames for compatibility will vary. We will keep you updated with any new developments on this topic, but in the meantime, please check updates to this page to obtain current information on compatibility with Apple Silicon.
Apple Silicon processors can run apps that are compiled for the Intel chipset through a software technology known as Rosetta 2. This translation layer is automatically enabled.
The table below lists the confirmed compatibility status for current Elgato products. The list will be updated with more products as soon as their compatibility status is confirmed:
