HyperX is now shipping its Alloy Origins 60 for $139.99. As the name suggests, this is a compact mechanical keyboard with a so-called 60 percent design. With the exception of RGB LED backlighting for the keys, the features are reduced to the bare minimum. The keyboard has PBT key caps and uses HyperX Red Switches with a linear operation and operating force of 45g.

The per-key backlight has five brightness levels and the keyboard has onboard memory to support three profiles. Alloy Origins 60 features a detachable USB Type-C to USB Type-A keyboard cable. This gives you the ability to connect it to USB Type-C devices if you have a USB cable with Type-C on both ends. Ideal for taking you lightning-fast to your favorite game sites, best online casinos, or tech forums.
HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., today announced its Alloy Origins 60 mechanical gaming keyboard is now shipping in the U.S. and Canada. A compact, 60 percent form factor keyboard, Alloy Origins 60 features HyperX Red linear mechanical switches that are built for performance, longevity and rated with an 80 million lifetime click rating per switch. 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.

Alloy Origins 60 is the first HyperX 60 percent gaming keyboard built with HyperX Red linear mechanical switches. HyperX Red switches are designed with a shorter actuation point and shorter travel time than other switches on the market, for a more responsive switch action. As a durable, stable gaming keyboard, Alloy Origins 60 features a full aircraft-grade aluminum body and offers a space-saving 60 percent layout that maximizes desktop real estate for ultimate mouse movement.

“HyperX is committed to making reliable keyboards with features and design specifications required by gamers,” said Jennifer Ishii, keyboard business manager, HyperX. “Our new Alloy Origins 60 mechanical gaming keyboard will meet the needs of gamers looking for an even more compact, 60 percent form factor keyboard for their gaming and work from home setups.”

Alloy Origins 60 includes RGB backlit keys with exposed LED for brighter illumination with radiant lighting effects and five adjustable brightness levels to enhance gaming, day or night. Supported by HyperX NGENUITY software, Alloy Origins 60 offers advanced customization features for lighting and macros, including customizable per-key lighting1 effects. The keyboard also comes with additional accessory keycaps, including a HX ESC keycap and exclusive HyperX-designed spacebar, along with a keycap puller for added customization.

Alloy Origins 60 features Custom Game Mode, allowing users to choose which keys are enabled and disabled. Macro keys can be assigned and stored in the macro library, and users can choose from three adjustable keyboard angles for perfect positioning. With on-board memory, users can save up to three profiles for on-the-go gaming using HyperX NGENUITY software. Other features include 100 percent anti-ghosting, full N-key rollover and a detachable USB Type-C to USB Type-A keyboard cable.
Overall another nice addition to the HyperX family of peripherals. A basic no-frills keyboard for those who want a clean, clutter-free desk. You can always visit here for some online entertainment. We recently reviewed the HyperX Pulsefire Surge, a pretty decent mouse with dazzling RGB LED effects.
