Corsair Introduces New Products at Special CES Event
1/8/2013 by: Ryan Glovinsky
Last night, Corsair announced a variety of new products at a special event at CES 2013.
First off, they updated almost their entire line of gaming peripherals from the M60, M90, and K90 to the M65, M95, and K95. They also acquired Raptor, a German peripheral company to make their ‘mainstream’ line of products, while the Vengeance line will continue as the ‘enthusiast’ line.
The M95 and M65 both have high precision 8200 DPI sensors and rugged switches. The M95 will be available in black/white and the M65 in black/white/green. The MSRP for the M95 is $79.99 and for the M65 it is $69.99. The M65 is available now and the M95 will be available in late January.
The K95 will come with Cherry MX Red mechanical key switches. It will be black anodized aluminum with individual white key lighting. It has 18 macro keys (which are also mechanical keys, unlike the K90) and lighting profiles. It will have an MSRP of $149.99 and will be available this Spring.
Also announced was the new Flash Voyager GT Turbo. It has Reads of up to 260MB/s and Writes of up to 235 MB/s. It will be available this February at capacities and respective prices of 128GB: $179.99, 64GB: $89.99, and 32GB: $49.99.
A new chassis was also added to Corsair’s lineup, the Obsidian 900D. It is a super-massive, ultra-expandable tower case with 10 expansion slots, 9 HDD/SSD bays (3 hot swap), 4 ODD bays, room for 2 PSUs, 15 fan mount points, and 5 radiator mount points. It also includes blue and white inserts and installation tool. The MSRP has not been released, though we overheard an approximate price of ~$300 USD. The 900D is expected to release in February/March.
Finally, the most touted new release at the event, the Voyager Air. It is currently the only drive on the market that is an all-in-one wireless mobile drive, home network storage, USB drive, and wireless hub. It streams and stores movies/music/documents and is accessible with Android, iOS, Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. What makes this drive an all-in-one is that the drive is accessible via Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, and USB 3.0. It will be available in 500GB (MSRP of $179) and 1TB (MSRP of $219) versions, each available in red or soft-touch gray. The Voyager will become available this February.
