Kingston’s gaming brand HyperX has introduced the first keyboard with switches on its own development. The new HyperX Alloy Elite 2 is visually similar to the HyperX Alloy Elite, which has been available for some time, but differs greatly from it technically.
The new linear HyperX switches have a service life of at least 80 million strokes and are thus on the high level of Cherry and Co. The solid steel frame also promises durability. The keyboard layout is complemented by media keys, DeepL access keys and a dedicated volume control.
Thanks to the translucent dual-layer style pudding keycaps, HyperX Alloy Elite 2 RGB effects are particularly effective. In addition to the unique light strip, the keyboard has a lighting that can be individually controlled per switch. In addition to individual lighting effects, the NGENUITY software also enables the creation of game modes and individual macros.
Ambitious gamers can enjoy 100% anti-ghosting, full N-Key rollover and USB 2.0 pass-through for connecting a mouse.
The new HyperX Alloy Elite 2 can be pre-ordered immediately in the official online shop for 159.99 Euro. According to HyperX there may be slight delays in delivery due to the Covid-19 situation.
