The Corsair K95 RGB Platinum XT is still every ounce as premium as the previous iteration. Corsair have opted to keep a lot of the core design the same while changing only a few minor details. What we have here is a device that’s still just as great as the original K95 RGB Platinum model from a few years ago.
So what’s new you might ask? For starters Corsair have included S-Keycaps for the six macro buttons on the keyboard’s left side. These macro buttons now have built in Elgato Streamdeck integration so streamers everywhere can rejoice. If you’re a streamer, these buttons will definitely come in handy since they can be assigned to predetermined actions that are useful during broadcasting to viewers. Corsair have also made this integration as simple as possible and the video below shows you exactly how easy it is to set up. There’s no hassles here that’s for sure.
