Introduction

XPG Logo

Almost two years to the day, I wrote my first XPG keyboard review in the form of the XPG Summoner. The brand was still a relatively unknown offshoot from ADATA, so much so that I even called it the ADATA XPG Summoner, and it was sold on the ADATA web shop. Things have certainly changed in the time since, with TechPowerUp publishing many solely XPG-branded product reviews in categories ranging from cases, memory, headsets, and even storage. XPG is now a bonafide brand akin to what HyperX from the then-Kingston umbrella had become, and we now get to take a look at a recent XPG keyboard release.


The XPG MAGE is a full-size mechanical keyboard XPG markets as a gaming keyboard for SEO and sales alike. It keeps things simple by offering a single switch option and not many language/layout options to lower the barrier of entry for RGB mechanical keyboards from a global brand, one that is supported by both hardware and software customization. Let's dig deeper into all this in our review of the keyboard, and thanks go to XPG for providing TechPowerUp a sample.
