As part of the all digital CES, HyperX announced a number of new gaming peripherals for gamers, on both PC and consoles. Being the big eSports brand that it is, all these devices have been battle hardened by pro-gamers and should be up to the challenge of the home gamer.
First out is a compact 60-percent keyboard for those with limited desk space, or just like things compact. The Alloy Origins 60 is a mechanical keyboard with red linear switches, and all the usual gaming mech keyboard features we’d expect, such as macro software, PBT double-shot keys so the lettering doesn’t wear out, backlit RGB keys, and on-board memory with profiles.
The Pulsefire Haste was released to the US markets not too long ago, but is now released globally as of today. It has a honeycomb hex shell to reduce weight and to provide ventilation to keep your palm cool (and somewhat aid it grip). It makes use of TTC Golden Micro dust-proof switches that should last 60-million clicks. The cable is meant to be extra flexible so as to not get in the way, and the sides of the mouse have grip-tape to further aid in fast flick movements.
The two headsets are part of HyperX’s successful cloud range, and include the Cloud II Wireless and the Cloud Revolver + 7.1. The former being the wireless unit which uses a 2.4Ghz dongle for long-range, and has 53mm drivers with 7.1 virtual surround. The Revolver + is largely a minor update over the Revolver, but with USB and 7.1 virtual surround. These two headsets were available in the US, but are now shipping globally.
The last item on the HyperX list, is an officially licensed Xbox charging dock for dual controllers. The ChargePlay Duo support controllers from the Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One Wireless controllers. The base is weight to keep it upright when controllers are plugged in, and also includes two 1400 mAh batteries for quick-swapping with Xbox Series X/S controllers.
All in all, a rather modest launch for CES, but this is to be expected due to recent issues around the world, we’re likely to see more substantial offerings later this year.
