HyperX Alloy Origins Gaming Keyboard Invents Its Own Switches

HyperX has long been in the game of providing gaming peripherals with extra zing and now the company is doing it extra-clicky.

Announced at Computex 2019, the HyperX Alloy Origins is a mechanical gaming keyboard that doesn’t settle for using any old key switches but designs its own.

You might be used to banging away on Cherry MX or Kailh key switches for that extra “clicky” noise and accuracy when gaming, so you should definitely try the Alloy Origins.

HyperX chose the popular Cherry MX red key switch design but tweaks both the travel distance of a pressed key (3.8 mm) and lowers the actuation point by 0.2 mm to 1.8 mm. It might seem like a small difference but, for competitive gaming, that’s definitely going to provide an edge.

Other than that, the HyperX Alloys Origin stands out due to the aluminum frame and the translucent keycaps that are a signature move from HyperX.

For the bragging rights of having a gaming keyboard that goes beyond MX Red switches, you’ll have to be ready to pay $109.99 for the HyperX Alloy Origins.

It might seem a bit pricey for those new to gaming keyboards but that’s the same price tag as the older and more colorful Alloy FPS RGB with Kailh switches.

The new keyboard will launch in the third quarter of 2019.
