HyperX's new duo includes the Alloy FPS, which offers Cherry MX switches, full N-key rollover and anti-ghosting along with a steel frame and an added USB port to charge other devices, and the Alloy Elite, which delivers similar performance with an added detachable wrist rest, dedicated media buttons, and USB 2.0 pass-through.

 

"Further raising the bar for personalization and comfort, HyperX is excited to reveal the new Alloy Elite Keyboard with Cherry MX Mechanical switches, detachable palm rest and custom lighting features. For TKL keyboard fans, the new Alloy FPS Pro was designed in our HyperX labs specifically for them," said Marcus Hermann, senior business manager, HyperX. "Ensuring that gamers connect and play immediately, keyboard customization options can be accessed without the assistance of software via keyboard functions."
