Despite its reduced size, the Alloy Origins 65 still has several function keys that are essential for some users, such as arrows, Delete, page up and down the page. This makes it possible to use the keyboard to perform these actions without adding other peripherals. According to Caio Ricci, HyperX’s regional manager for Latin America, the size doesn’t change the other models in the line, which also includes the Alloy Origins 60.

The idea is to meet different profiles of players, but in this case those who prefer to use the arrow keys to play.

The keyboard’s internal memory also allows you to store up to three preference profiles that can be configured via NGENUITY software. In the visual part, the HyperX keyboard gets two versions with Red and Aqua switches. While the red model has a linear style that can produce faster response in commands, the Aqua has a tactile style and is expected to arrive in the country later this semester.

According to the company, the lifespan is 80 million keys. Another strong point of the keyboard, the RGB lighting has several light effects and five brightness levels that can be adjusted according to the user’s preferences.
