CORSAIR announces K95 RGB Platinum keyboard

CORSAIR was excited to announce the K95 RGB Platinum keyboard, which combines a trademark CORSAIR anodized aluminum frame with the latest in premium keyboard technologies.

These keyboards are built to last, thanks to the aircraft-grade anodized brushed aluminum frame, and, as with all of their mechanical keyboards, utilizes onlyCherry MX key switches. In addition, it features hardware playback and 8MB of onboard memory, allowing gamers to save complex, multi-layer reactive lighting profiles without the need for external software, and, of course, custom key assignments and macros.

You can set up profiles and custom key assignments for three onboard profiles in the CORSAIR Utility Engine, then save them to memory, utilizing the K95 RGB Platinum with all of the custom controls on any system you wish. It even boasts six dedicated, specially textured macro keys, featuring contours so that you can avoid accidentally pressing them.

It also features a detachable dual-sided soft-touch wrist rest for smooth or textured comfort and a dedicated USB pass-through. Here are the full specifications:
