HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology, introduced the new Alloy Origins gaming keyboard Computex 2019, the first company to use proprietary design switches instead of the more famous Kailh and Cherry MX. As can be seen in the photo below, the new HyperX keyboard uses switches based on the RED type, usually very popular with gamers due to its high response, as confirmed by the success of Cherry MX RED.
HyperX has further optimized the design of these RED switches, featuring a 3.8mm stroke and a 1.8mm actuation point; we talk about 0.2mm less than the Cherry MX RED. HyperX Alloy Origins is a full-sized keyboard with an aluminum frame, guaranteed switches for 80 million clicks and dynamic RGB backlight that can be managed via software.
HyperX Alloy Origins will be available starting from the third quarter, priced at $109.99 and it will be possible to opt a variant without RGB backlight with black keys.
