CES, Las Vegas, NV — January 5th, 2017 — Corsair®, a world leader in enthusiast memory, PC components and high-performance gaming hardware today announced the new flagship mechanical gaming keyboard, the K95 RGB Platinum. Building on the phenomenal success of CORSAIR mechanical keyboards, the new K95 RGB Platinum combines a trademark CORSAIR anodized aluminum frame with the very latest in premium keyboard technologies to redefine what gamers can expect from a high-end keyboard.
Built to last, the stylish aircraft-grade anodized brushed aluminum frame of the K95 RGB Platinum will withstand a lifetime of gaming and, as with all CORSAIR mechanical keyboards, uses only Cherry MX key switches. Trusted for decades to deliver proven accuracy and reliability, Cherry switches remain the industry standard for mechanical keyboards and with K95 RGB Platinum, owners can choose between the high-speed, low-travel Cherry MX RGB Speed switch, or the tactile feedback of Cherry MX RGB Brown.
With the addition of hardware playback and 8MB of onboard memory, the K95 RGB Platinum allows gamers to save not just custom key assignments and macros to memory, but complex, multi-layer reactive lighting profiles, so you can game without the need for external software. Set up profiles and custom key assignments for three onboard profiles in CORSAIR Utility Engine (CUE), save them to memory, and then use the K95 RGB Platinum with all your custom lighting and key controls on any system. What’s more, The K95 RGB Platinum boasts six dedicated macro keys, specially textured so you can easily find them at the crucial moment and contoured so to avoid accidentally pressing them.
Since CORSAIR first debuted per-key RGB lighting at CES 2014, the technology has become synonymous with CORSAIR keyboards, exciting gamers with the ability to customize their setup with vibrant colors and amazing effects. With its new LightEdge, the K95 RGB Platinum takes RGB lighting to the next level. In addition to per-key RGB lighting configurable in CUE, LightEdge offers a dedicated 19-zone light bar, able to be lit in conjunction with, or completely separately from, the rest of the keyboard. Illuminate LightEdge with a solid color, rippling RGB waves, or a menacing visor of light – it’s all part of how you make the K95 RGB Platinum your own.
The K95 RGB Platinum is also loaded with extras to help you get the most from your games. A detachable dual-sided soft-touch wrist rest provides textured or smooth comfort, while a dedicated USB pass-through port means a place to connect your CORSAIR mouse, headset or flash drive is always at hand. Dedicated media and volume controls put playback of your music and videos at your fingertips, and with dedicated Windows key lock and brightness buttons, you can eliminate distractions in an instant. CORSAIR also includes a set of FPS and MOBA textured keycaps, providing gamers enhanced grip and feel for the crucial keys in their favorite games.
