HyperX®, a division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced two new HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboards with Cherry® MX Red or Cherry® MX Brown Mechanical Switches are now shipping in UK, Germany, Poland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland. HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboards feature a minimalistic, compact design that’s ideal for CS:GO and FPS gameplay, with a solid steel frame built for long-lasting durability and stability. Cherry® MX switches provide the tactile feedback and performance gamers have come to expect from HyperX gaming keyboards.

The HyperX Alloy FPS keyboard family now includes three versions: with either Cherry MX Blue, Red or Brown mechanical switches. The ultra-portable, HyperX Alloy FPS comes complete with a high-quality mesh travel pouch to store and protect the keyboard and accessories for tournaments, LAN events, wherever gaming takes you. A convenient USB port is available for charging a phone. Keys are backlit with red LEDs and have six preset LED settings, including a custom mode. The keyboard also offers Game Mode to easily disable the Windows key to prevent game play interruptions, along with 100-percent anti-ghosting and full N-Key rollover functionality. The keys are guaranteed for 50 million key strokes per key.

“HyperX is pleased to expand our Alloy FPS keyboard product line to now include Cherry MX Red or Brown switches, along with the Blue switches introduced in 2016,” said Edward Baily, EMEA HyperX Business Manager. “Gamers who play FPS classics like CS:GO or Overwatch can now choose from a variety of Alloy FPS gaming keyboards; with a linear switch, a tactile switch or something in between.”

HyperX is an avid supporter of eSports and the gaming community, developing products designed specifically for FPS genres – including the HyperX Cloud Revolver headset, which delivers a studio-grade sound stage that enables gamers to have more accurate sound, enhanced comfort and superior quality. The new HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is the official keyboard of Intel Extreme Masters and Eleague gaming events.
