HyperX launches Alloy Origins mechanical gaming keyboard complete with red switches and an aluminum body
Like Razer, HyperX is known for its lineup of colorful PC accessories and even some PC components like RAM and PSUs. Its latest product is the Alloy Origins mechanical gaming keyboard which drops the arrow keys and numpad keys for a slimmer and more space-saving design.
Other than its petite size, the keyboard comes with HyperX red switches and compatibility with the company's NGenuity software for per-key RGB lighting features and macros. The retail box includes two extra keycaps and a removable USB-A to USB-C cable. More notably, the adjustable feet allow for three different angles as opposed to just one or two on most other keyboards.
The 60 percent keyboard form factor seems to be growing in popularity these days. Both Razer and Ducky introduced their own models late last year with similar features as the Alloy Origins. Check out the official product page below to learn more about the new keyboard.
