Sunbury-on-Thames, UK, 18th July, 2017 – HyperX®, the gaming division of Kingston® Technology Company, Inc., today introduced two new additions to its award winning lineup of gaming keyboards used by esports athletes worldwide – the HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Pro Gaming Keyboard and Alloy Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. HyperX delivers all the components needed for the best competitive gaming setup, and the new HyperX Alloy Keyboards boast Cherry MX Mechanical switches, lighting effects, 100 percent anti-ghosting and solid-steel frames for the tactile feedback and performance gamers expect from HyperX gear.

“Further raising the bar for personalisation and comfort, HyperX is excited to reveal the new Alloy Elite Keyboard with Cherry MX Mechanical switches, detachable palm rest and custom lighting features. For TKL keyboard fans, the new Alloy FPS Pro was designed in our HyperX labs specifically for them,” said Ignacio Sune, Sales Manager EMEA for HyperX. “Ensuring that gamers connect and play immediately, keyboard customisation options can be accessed without the assistance of software via keyboard functions.”

Featuring an all-new design, the Alloy Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard includes HyperX red LED backlighting, an 18 LED light bar with luminous lighting along with custom lighting modes, and 6 preset LED effects. Alloy Elite is built with a solid steel frame for durability, offers dedicated media buttons, and a large volume wheel along with quick access buttons for brightness, lighting effects, and game mode. Alloy Elite also includes a USB 2.0 pass through, HyperX titanium coloured, textured WASD keys, and full N-Key rollover functionalities. No software is required – Alloy Elite is ready for plug-and-play gaming and includes a detachable palm rest for added comfort during gameplay. 

The new HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Pro Gaming Keyboard is geared toward users seeking a ten keyless gaming keyboard option and enables dedicated FPS players to take their gaming to a professional level, with its space-saving layout that maximises desktop space for mouse movement. Designed for professional esports teams and avid followers that prefer compact size, Alloy FPS Pro is the ideal keyboard for gaming on the go. 

“HyperX Mechanical Gaming Keyboards have given me a true competitive advantage from day one. The build, quality and features give our team the consistency needed to game at our best each and every time we load in,” said Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, CSGO team leader, SK Gaming. “Every key press on our HyperX Mechanical Gaming Keyboards deliver the perfect amount of tension and release to keep out fingers firing off rapid actions.
