HyperX Alloy Origins Core Tenkeyless RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Now Available in Australia
HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology, today introduced a new addition to its award-winning lineup of gaming keyboards – HyperX Alloy Origins™ Core. Featuring HyperX Red mechanical switches, the new keyboard is built for performance and longevity with a shorter actuation point and 80 million click rating.
Alloy Origins Core maximises desktop real estate with a space-saving tenkeyless layout for ultimate mouse movement. The keyboard features RGB exposed backlit keys for brighter illumination with radiant lighting effects and five adjustable brightness levels to enhance gaming, day or night. For added durability, stability and flexibility, Alloy Origins Core is built with a full aircraft-grade aluminum body and the USB Type-C to USB Type-A keyboard cable is detachable.
“HyperX is excited to release the new Alloy Origins Core featuring HyperX red mechanical switches,” said HyperX. “The Alloy Origins Core was designed specifically for TKL keyboard fans, offering gamers a high-performance HyperX RGB tenkeyless keyboard option.”
Alloy Origins Core features a 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. Equipped with HyperX NGENUITY software, Alloy Origins Core offers advanced customisation features for lighting and macros, including simple customisable per-key lighting effects.1 With on-board memory, users may save up to three of their Alloy Origins Core profiles for on-the-go gaming using HyperX NGENUITY software. The keyboard also includes 100 percent anti-ghosting and full N-key rollover.
The new HyperX Alloy Origins Core (MSRP AUD$169) mechanical gaming keyboard is now available through HyperX’s retail and e-tail channels and is backed by a limited two-year warranty with HyperX support.
