HyperX at CES 2020: ChargePlay Clutch for Switch, Cloud Flight S, In-house Switches

HyperX made a splash at CES 2020 with several innovations. The star-attraction was the ChargePlay Clutch, an innovative Nintendo Switch battery dock that lets you extend your gaming session by augmenting a hot-swappable battery-pack. This battery pack has a Qi certified wireless charging receptacle, and the separately-purchasable ChargePlay Qi dock lets you charge up to two battery packs in one go. You can also split the contraption into two, such that the head unit sits on a table with a kick-stand, while the two JoyCons get grips of their own.

The HyperX Cloud Flight S is another innovative gaming peripheral for those on the move. It is an around-the-ear headset with a conventional mic stock. One of the two cans has a Qi wireless charging receptacle so you can charge it on any Qi-compatible charging surface. The internal batteries provide up to 30 hours of use on a full charge. The internal DAC provides a virtual 7.1 surround sound, while the NGenuity software lets you control its RGB illuminated HyperX logos.

Quick Look: HyperX Doubleshot PBT Pudding Keycaps (White)

We took a close look at HyperX's new keyboard, the Alloy Origins, earlier this week, and were left impressed with it. The company had sent along also a set of their new replacement keycap set for us to check out, and this seemed like a great product to trial out a shorter article format to cover products that otherwise would not merit multi-page reviews.

MSI Announces DDR4 Memory Overclocking World Record @ 5902 MHz on MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC Motherboard

MSI today announced that their in-house overclocker Kovan Yang has broken the world overclocking record for DDR4 memory. The record-breaking feat was achieved with a pair of HyperX Predator DDR4 memory modules paired with MSI's MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC motherboard, with a little help from liquid nitrogen cooling.

The overclock was achieved with some compromises: the Intel Core i9-9900K processor that powered the system was running in a pared-down configuration with only a pair of active cores, and the DDR4 memory was working in single-channel mode with a single 8 GB stick and highly relaxed timings of 31-63-6363-2. While this isn't usable in your regular machine, that's not the point of these extreme overclocking feats, anyway. The goal is to showcase component quality and stability whilst working way beyond specifications.

Audeze Enters the Gaming Audio Market with Mobius Series Head-tracking Headset

If you've just experienced deja vu, it's because the HyperX Orbit S headset we went hands-on last evening packs Audeze-made planar magnetic drivers, and features head-tracking. Californian audiophile headphones and DAC maker Audeze fancies a bigger slice of the gaming audio pie, and has swan-dived into the competitive market with a feature-packed monstrosity, the Mobius.

The Audeze Mobius is an around-the-ear gaming headset that packs the company's finest 50 mm-class planar-magnetic drivers that have been tuned with a gaming-optimized sound-stage; and incorporates head-tracking positional audio technology, much like the HyperX Cloud Orbit S. On the software side of things, a virtual surround DSP takes in real-time input from the headset on the exact spatial position of your head compared to a static display (much like a VR HMD), and accordingly moves the audio perspective. The software is pretty intuitive and lightweight, and doesn't come with too much DSP bloat. We went ears-on with one of these, and the sound-quality blew our minds first, and the realism the head-tracking feature adds to gameplay took care of the rest. Head-tracking audio headsets could gain popularity among gamers who don't want a display within an inch of their eyes.
