HyperX's new Alloy FPS RGB keyboard rocks Kailh silver speed switches that are specifically designed for fast key presses thanks to their 1.1mm operating levels and 40g actuation force. The keys are rated for 70 million key presses and come with RGB-enabled LEDs that offer customization with five different brightness levels. Users can also tailor-make their keyboard's color schemes via HyperX's NGenuity software, and the Alloy FPS RGB can store up to three profiles on its built-in memory.

Other features include 100% anti-ghosting, full N-key rollover, 1000Hz polling rate, and USB pass-through to charge mobile devices.
