The first thing you need to do when you buy a new computer is to install its new SSD.
Corsair K95 Platinum is an extremely fast SSD, and it delivers more performance per GB of capacity than its predecessors.
Unfortunately, there’s not much in the way of updates for the Platinum, which was released last month, making it a little hard to find.
In order to upgrade to the Platinum Pro, you’ll need to buy a whole new motherboard.
The latest Platinum Pro motherboards include a new PCIe 3.0 interface and SATA 6Gbps ports, and that’s about it.
You’ll also need a whole bunch of RAM, which is a bit odd for a Platinum product, since the drive is designed to be used in RAID 1 setups.
Corsair’s Platinum Pro will also be available with either a SATA 6Gb/s or an SSD.
The SATA 6GB/s model offers 4GB of storage, while the SSD offers 16GB.
If you’re upgrading from a previous model of the drive, you can choose between an SSD or SATA 6gbps, but the latter is likely to be faster.
Corsair also lists the K95 in SATA 6.0, which isn’t a great choice.
If your computer doesn’t support SATA 6 Gbps, you should go with an SSD instead.
