Corsair K95 RGB Platinum XT Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

The new Corsair K95 RGB Platinum XT is somewhat similar to its predecessor, the K95 “non-XT”, but with some few changes or upgrades. First, it features 100% Cherry MX RGB mechanical key switches; and the XT model gets the Cherry MX Speed RGB Silver switch, with an ultra-fast 1.2mm actuation. It’s also available in MX RGB Brown and MX RGB Blue switches.

There are 6 dedicated macro keys on the left-hand side just like the previous K95. But the unique thing with the XT is, aside from being a regular macro keys, they can be programmed to use custom streaming commands via the Elgato Stream Deck software. The K95 XT comes with an alternate set of blue S-key keycaps for the macro keys to visually denote streaming commands, aside from the default grey G-key keycaps.

The K95 RGB Platinum XT also gets a detachable plush palm rest. It is a soft textured cushioned leatherette palm rest that offers comfort especially during long gaming / typing sessions. It’s more comfortable compared to the plastic palm rest with rubberized coating.

Other features of the K95 XT include dynamic per-key RGB backlighting with 19-zone LightEdge; PBT double-shot keycaps, anodized brushed Aluminum frame; dedicated multimedia control keys; USB pass-through port; 100% anti-ghosting with full N-key rollover and an 8MB onboard profile storage.

Pricing and Availability

The Corsair K95 RGB Platinum XT mechanical gaming keyboard is now available in the US. It comes with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $199 USD and a two-year warranty.

Elgato 4K60 S+ External Capture Device

The new Elgato 4K60 S+ is also a very interesting device; it is the company’s “most powerful” external capture device yet. It features a USB 3.0 connectivity for live streaming via a PC; and a memory card slot to record 4K60 HDR10 gameplay directly to an SD card without the need for a connected computer. Onboard HEVC encoding keeps file sizes manageable, while true zero-lag passthrough displays high-fidelity Xbox One X and PS4 Pro games in their original format for an uninterrupted, authentic gaming experience.

When connected to a PC, Elgato 4K60 S+ records unlimited footage directly to a hard drive and uses features like Flashback Recording to easily save gameplay retroactively, and Live Commentary to record microphone audio as a separate track. It is also compatible with PC broadcasting software like OBS Studio; and it is said to be the “most complete external capture solution for recording high-fidelity console footage in 4K60 HDR10 quality, with or without a computer”.

Elgato 4K60 S+ Pricing and Availability

The Elgato 4K60 S+ comes with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $399.99 and is available immediately from Elgato and Corsair authorized retailers and distributors. It is also back by a two-year warranty just like the K95 RGB Platinum XT.
