HyperX says the device is its first 60% keyboard – but it’s worth pointing out that last year it teamed up with Ducky to release a co-branded version of the A 2 Mini, which also has a compact layout. Regardless of how you want to look at the Alloy Origins 60, it has all the usual HyperX touches. Expect the company’s signature RGB lighting and linear red switches. But best of all is the price. HyperX plans to sell Alloy Origins 60 for $ 100 when it releases on February 22. At this price, you can usually expect a manufacturer to ignore features, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with Alloy Origins, which includes both double-hit PBT keycaps and built-in memory to save profiles. personalized.
Speaking of products that exceed their price tag, the other new HyperX device announced at CES is the ChargePlay Duo. It’s a docking station that can charge two of your Xbox controllers simultaneously. It works with both Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One game controllers. At $ 40, a good idea is that it comes with two 1400mAh rechargeable batteries, so you don’t have to buy the $ 25 those from Microsoft separately.
Apart from these devices, HyperX announced the global availability of its Pulsed fire rod mouse, as well as Cloud II and Cloud Revolver helmets. Of the three, the Pulsefire Haste is probably the most interesting as it is HyperX’s entry into the growing and competitive category of ultralight mice. With a claimed weight of 59 grams, this is one of the lightest mice you can buy right now, beating the likes of the Razer Viper Mini and Glorious Model O.
