HyperX Alloy Origins 60 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Now Available
Peter Donnell / 4 months ago
HyperX has revealed that their latest Alloy Origins 60 mechanical gaming keyboard is now shipping in EMEA, having previously launched in the US market only. As the name might suggest the Alloy Origins 60 is a 60% size keyboard. While not everyone will love something this compact, it’s a fantastic desktop space saver, makes it ultra-portable, and well… it just looks cool!
Alloy Origins 60
The Alloy Origins 60 features HyperX’s own Red linear mechanical switches and having tested them on previous models, I know they’re pretty fantastic. Their switches are rated with an 80 million lifetime click rating per switch, which is higher than that of a Cherry switch; that that I’ve ever heard of one wearing out from either brand. Furthermore, they also have a slightly shorter actuation, making them more like MX Silver competitors. The keyboard includes RGB exposed backlit keys for brighter illumination with radiant lighting effects and double shot PBT keycaps with secondary functions for long-term use and durability.
- Petite 60% form factor
- HyperX mechanical switches
- Double shot PBT keycaps (Black)
- Customizable with HyperX NGENUITY Software
- Layout: English (US)
- Part Number: HKBO1S-RB-US/G
Fast and light switches, a compact 60% design, and a stunning aluminium body, HyperX NGENUITY software, macro keys, gaming modes, onboard memory and much more make this every bit a premium keyboard experience as we’ve come to expect from their full-size models.
