One of the biggest surprises of CORSAIR’s presentation at CES 2020 was not in its hardware or content creation technologies, but rather in some of the software that will power the new CORSAIR line of keyboards. The latest CORSAIR line of keyboards will receive the functionality to use a selected row of macro keys as control buttons for the Elgato Stream Deck software suite.
The recently unveiled CORSAIR K95 PLATINUM series of keypads will be the first (and currently) only range of mechanical keyboards to feature Elgato Stream Deck software as well as CORSAIR iCUE functionality out of the box.
Fully equipped with all the features that made the original K95 RGB PLATINUM one of the most award-winning mechanical keyboards on the market, such as dynamic RGB per-key backlighting with an iconic 19-zone LightEdge, a durable brushed aluminum frame and 100% CHERRY MX Mechanical Key Switches, the K95 PLATINUM XT raises the bar with several key upgrades.
With the Elgato Stream Deck software, users can program custom streaming controls to the dedicated macro keys on the K95 RGB PLATINUM XT, just as they would for the Stream Deck broadcast controller. The keyboards come with another set of blue S-key keys for macro keys to visually indicate streaming commands, and the remaining keys feature ultra-durable double-hit PBT keys. The K95 RGB PLATINUM XT offers plush comfort with a removable, padded leatherette palm rest and is available with three key switch types: CHERRY MX Brown and SPEED Silver – both now guaranteed for 100 million keystrokes – or key switches. CHERRY MX Blue standard key.
The CORSAIR K95 RGB PLATINUM XT is now available in North America with all three key switch variants for $ 199.99
