Most of the major gaming peripherals have already introduced 60 percent mechanical keyboards, which are more compact than the full-size versions and have gotten fashionable in recent years for aesthetic and size reasons. But at CES 2021, HyperX is finally following its example by introducing its first compact model called Alloy Origins 60. There are fewer switches here than one of its full-size options, but not necessarily fewer functions; You will find that most of the available keys have secondary functions that can be activated by pressing and holding the Function button.
This isn’t the first time that 60 percent of the keyboard has not named HyperX. The company teamed up with enthusiast brand Ducky on a limited edition One 2 Mini for that company, And injected it with some trademark HyperX and its internal red linear mechanical switches. Likewise, Alloy Origins 60 features these same switches, with a USB-C port to connect to your computer. It can store up to three profiles with its built-in memory, which you can operate on the keyboard itself or via HyperX’s Windows 10 app. The app also offers some additional features, such as allowing you to customize LED lighting and assign your own macro commands to the keys.
HyperX says the included keycaps are a double-shot PBT, which means they’re more resistant to sparkling and lettering after a lot of use. This model will be released in the US on February 22nd for $ 99.99. On the subject of availability, HyperX also announced during CES 2021 that it is Pulsefire Haste wired gaming mouseAnd the Cloud II wireless gaming headsetWorldwide, Cloud Revolver 7.1 wired gaming headset.
