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 lighting 1 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.
