HyperX Pulsefire Core Review

Packaging & Shape »


HyperX is a high-performance product division of Kingston Technology that has been producing fantastic gaming gear for many years now. A few months ago, I reviewed one of their mice, the Pulsefire Surge, which is a rather expensive high-end product. I wasn't very impressed by its value, but since then, the company has introduced a few more mice. The Pulsefire Core is a budget option as it costs less than $30. However, according to its specifications, it is on par with more expensive rodents. It has a symmetrical form factor, PixArt PAW3327 optical sensor, customizable RGB lighting, and main buttons rated for 20 million clicks—it has the specs to be great, especially at such a low price point.
