Most large gaming peripherals have already introduced 60 percent mechanical keyboards, which are more compact than full-size versions and have become fashionable in recent years for aesthetic reasons and sizes. But the CES 2021 HyperX finally follows suit, debuting its first compact model called the Alloy Origins 60. It has fewer keys than one of its full-size options, but not necessarily fewer features; you will find that most of the available keys have secondary functions that can be activated by holding down the function key.
This isn’t the first time a 60 percent keyboard has been named HyperX. The company collaborated with the enthusiastic brand Ducky in a limited edition of this company One 2 Mini, injecting it with some brands of HyperX and its internal red linear mechanical switches. Similarly, the Alloy Origins 60 has these same switches, with a USB-C port for connecting to a computer. It can store up to three profiles with internal memory, which you can turn on the keyboard itself or through the Windows 1
HyperX says the included keyboard caps are a PBT double shot, which means they are much more resistant to glare and letter wear after a lot of use. This model will go on sale in the United States on February 22 for $ 99.99. On the subject of availability, HyperX also announced during CES 2021 that its Pulsefire Haste wired gaming mouse, Cloud II wireless gaming headset and Cloud Revolver 7.1 wired gaming headset are available worldwide.
