HyperX launches Alloy Origins mechanical gaming keyboard complete with red switches and an aluminum body
The Alloy Origins is the company's first 60 percent keyboard and it's now shipping for $99 USD. Its launch comes a few months after the Ducky One 2 Mini mechanical keyboard which was made in collaboration with HyperX.
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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s.
