HyperX gets into the growing 60% keyboard game with the Alloy Origins 60. Based on the same design language as the popular Alloy Origins and Alloy Origins Core, it cuts things down physically while retaining the feature set the company uses to attract gamers, typists, and fans of the brand alike.
HyperX has added to their Alloy Origin line of keyboards and their first-party switch offerings since we last covered them. Today, we take a look at the TKL form factor Alloy Origins Core, which comes with their Aqua tactile switches and aims to offer a svelte typing and gaming experience with a lightweight all-aluminium body!
HyperX launches their latest keyboard, the Alloy Origins, to coincide with the retail release of their own custom mechanical switches. Featuring the HyperX Red linear switch, the Alloy Origins RGB keyboard has extensive lighting and functionality in a svelte package, and at an attractive price!
HyperX provides an RGB version of the Alloy FPS mechanical keyboard for those wanting the additional bling, but there's more. A new switch type combined with a unified software driver makes for an improved user experience, and optional accessories including wrist rests and replacement keycaps complete the package.
The Alloy Elite from HyperX takes the older Alloy FPS as a base and builds on it by adding dedicated media and lighting-control buttons, floating keycaps on a steel frame, a lightbar for further customization, and a wrist rest. It is better-suited for those looking for a full "battlestation" experience rather than portability.
The Alloy FPS is the first keyboard to come out of Kingston's gaming brand, HyperX. It has a minimalist bezel design, features a thick steel frame for rigidity, floating keycaps, backlighting, and the use of Cherry MX switches in various layouts for customers around the world. To help sweeten the deal, HyperX includes a travel sleeve, a USB pass-through, and replacement keycaps as well.
