Corsair K95 RGB Platinum in detail
Corsair's K95 RGB Platinum features a beautiful, rugged chassis for a solid stand and great look on the desk. Corsair has chosen for a sleek, anodized frame made of brushed aircraft aluminum to create a timeless design, elevated by the impressive RGB lighting features.
It’s possible to attach a wrist rest to the front of the keyboard for additional comfort during long gaming or typing sessions. It’s possible to switch the wrist pad between a smooth or a textured surface, depending on personal preference.
There is a USB pass-through port on the back of the K95 RGB Platinum. It can be used to connect a wired mouse (using the cut-outs on the bottom of the keyboard to elegantly hide part of the cable), to quickly connect storage media to the computer, or to power a USB fan on hot summer days. To provide peripherals connected to the USB pass-through port with enough power, the braided keyboard has two USB connectors.
CHERRY MX RGB Brown or MX RGB Speed Silver
At the core of the Corsair K95 RGB Platinum are either CHERRY MX RGB Speed Silver or MX RGB Brown switches. The latter have a tactile characteristic with 55 centinewton operating force, making them perfect for precise inputs while gaming or typing.
The MX Brown switches do not have an audible click, resulting in significantly lower noise than with, for example, CHERRY MX Blue switches.
RGB lighting and Corsair CUE software
The CHERRY MX RGB switches in the K95 RGB Platinum offer fully customizable lighting. Corsair provides this flagship keyboard with 8 GB of internal memory to store and quickly access three different illumination profiles at any time. Adjusting these lighting modes and other keyboard settings is done with the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) software.
With the K95 RGB Platinum, Corsair offers a truly high-end keyboard. A solid build with high-quality materials, a comprehensive feature set, and an intuitive Corsair Utility Engine software solution underline the flagship position of this keyboard. The CHERRY MX RGB switches provide the ideal basis for maximum performance and spectacular lighting effects. The K95 RGB Platinum is available with MX RGB Brown switches (shown here) or with MX RGB Speed Silver switches, allowing you to choose between a precise, noticeable input or a lightning-fast input with extremely short reaction times.
