HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., today announced it is now shipping the HyperX Alloy Origins Core Mechanical Gaming Keyboard featuring HyperX Blue mechanical switches. Built for performance and longevity, HyperX Blue mechanical switches offer a shorter actuation point and 80 million click rating to meet gaming and work from home needs. The HyperX Alloy Origins Core tenkeyless keyboard features a minimalistic, compact design with RGB backlit keys to enhance home offices and PC gaming setups. HyperX blue switches are favored by gamers that like clicky key sounds and operating action.

Alloy Origins Core is built with a full aircraft-grade aluminium body for durability and stability, plus a space-saving tenkeyless layout to maximize desktop real estate for ultimate mouse movement. Alloy Origins Core features RGB backlit keys with exposed LED for brighter illumination with radiant lighting effects and five adjustable brightness levels to enhance gaming, day or night. The USB Type-C to USB Type-A keyboard cable is also detachable.



"HyperX is excited to add HyperX Blue mechanical switches to the Alloy Origins Core lineup," said Jennifer Ishii, keyboard business manager, HyperX. "Alloy Origins Core was designed specifically for TKL keyboard fans. Adding the new HyperX Blue switches alongside the existing red switch version allows gamers to choose their preferred switch type while receiving the top performance, reliability and style inherent in keyboards with HyperX-branded switches."

Alloy Origins Core keyboards feature Custom Game Mode, allowing users to manage which keys are enabled and disabled. Macro keys can be assigned and stored in the macro library and users can choose from three adjustable keyboard angles for perfect height and angle positioning. With on-board memory, users may save up to three Alloy Origins profiles for on-the-go gaming using HyperX NGENUITY software. The software also offers advanced customization features for lighting and macros, including simple customizable per-key lighting effects.1 Other features include 100 percent anti-ghosting and full N-key rollover.

Availability
The HyperX Alloy Origins Core Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with HyperX Blue switches is available for $89.99 MSRP through the HyperX U.S. Shop.

Hmm? Didn't they already have a Blue-like switch for this? I know Aqua = Brown and Red is obviously its namesake, but I thought they've already had a Blue switch prior to both of those.

They did, but it was only available with the full-size Alloy Origins thus far.
