Last year, HyperX, which has slowly been expanding its line-up of gaming peripherals over the past few years, officially unveiled its first gaming keyboard, the Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches, and this month the company is officially bringing the new keyboard to the Philippines.
“After extensive research and hundreds of hours of gameplay testing, HyperX developed a mechanical keyboard from the ground up to withstand the most intense gameplay, featuring a small footprint that is vital for FPS gamers. With its solid steel alloy frame and Cherry MX Blue switches, this keyboard is designed for over 50 million keystrokes per key,” said HyperX. “Gamers who play FPS classics like CS:GO or Overwatch will appreciate its compact yet sturdy design. The HyperX ALLOY FPS keyboard design gives gamers more space to setup their desktop surface to execute intricate mouse actions.”
Aside from the Cherry MX Blue Switches, the Alloy FPS also features a full-size keyboard layout, a solid steel alloy frame, red LED backlighting with six preset LED modes, a Game Mode which disables the Windows key, 100-percent anti-ghosting, and full N-Key rollover functionality. The Alloy FPS is also equipped with a USB charging port found on the back of the keyboard and comes with additional red-colored WASD/1234 keys, a detachable braided cord, and a mesh travel pouch.
The HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches is now available through several retailers around the Philippines and is priced at around Php5,990. The company also unveiled Cherry MX Red and Brown variants of the Alloy FPS but those will be available sometime in April.
