The market for gaming peripherals has quickly gotten crowded in the last few years. HyperX—a division of Kingston Technology—has released several well-received headsets in the past, including the Cloud Stinger that we liked well enough to recommend. This year at CES, HyperX is expanding its peripherals lineup with new keyboards and a gaming mouse.
The highlight on the list (pun intended) is the HyperX Alloy RGB Gaming Keyboard. The Alloy RGB lets the user customize the looks of his device with dynamic lighting profiles and onboard controls. There's also a set dedicated media keys and a volume roller. The keyboard's alloy metal frame should let it survive intense gaming sessions, too. HyperX didn't announce what switch types will be in this keyboard or its pricing, but indicated that it should be available in the third quarter of 2017.
Gamers who don't need a light show under their fingers might be interested in the HyperX Alloy FPS gaming keyboards. These keyboards are equipped with Cherry MX switches, in either Brown or Red flavors. While these are full-size keyboards with a numeric keypad, they don't take up an excessive amount of room due to their space-saving design. HyperX also throws in a braided, detachable cable and an optional set of red keycaps for commonly-used gaming keys. The Alloy FPS keyboards are available now for $100.
The last item on the list is the Pulsefire gaming mouse, a five-button gaming mouse that shouldn't break the bank. It tracks motion with an optical sensor, and gives users the choice between four preset DPI settings. The mouse's texturized rubber sides should help with grip, too. HyperX tells us to expect these in April at a suggested price of $50.
