Make the Switch

When it comes to gaming on PC, your keyboard is your most important ally. That’s why it’s essential to make sure you’ve got one that suits you and your play style. Just missing out on those wins? Does your current keyboard not keep up with your actions?

Then it’s time to switch up the story.

HyperX give gamers high performance equipment to make sure players can reach their best, and that was at the forefront of our minds when designing the HyperX range of keyboard switches.

 

There is only 1.8mm of travel distance between pressing the key and the press registering, making it one of the shortest on the market. This can make all the difference in high tension moments when speed is key. Being faster than your enemy means you come out on top.

 

HyperX key switches won’t let you down either, with a life span of over 80 million keystrokes, which is nearly double that of other manufacturers. This means your gaming companion is with you for the long haul, no matter the number of raids, bosses or enemy teams you take down. HyperX Switches will be with you again and again, helping you rise to glory.

HyperX Red switches are just like a deadly secret agent – fast, efficient, and most importantly, quiet, getting the job done with no fuss. Players of MMOs and MOBAs might prefer this linear style when double clicking your keys to get that ability off on cooldown is vital.

HyperX Red Switches come on all HyperX keyboards, such as the Alloy Origins, Alloy Elite 2 and Alloy 60.

HyperX Aqua switches are great for those who want the best of both worlds. Sit back and relax with tactile yet quiet switches, letting you know you’ve made your move, without loud sounds to distract you.

HyperX Aqua Switches come on selected HyperX keyboards, such as the Alloy Origins and Alloy Origins Core.

For those who want to be heard loud and clear, then the HyperX Blue Switch is for you. With a tactile feel and satisfying click, there’s no doubt when you’ve made the key press, great for both gaming and writing.

HyperX Blue switches come on selected HyperX keyboards, such as the Alloy Origins and Alloy Origins Core.

"We find gamers who prefer to focus on the game for audio and visual feedback prefer the HyperX Red Switches as they are smooth and silent so cause less distractions.

HyperX's Aqua switches are great for those types of players who value haptic feedback with the added "click" confirming their key action has been registered - Aqua switch users prioritise accuracy over speed.

Gamers who prefer to use the HyperX Blue switch are driven by the loud switch noise which helps to increase the games intensity as well as the gamer's overall experience."

HyperX Red

HyperX Red key switches are linear-style switches. Their name derives from the fact that when you press down, their travel path is just a line. They don’t have that “bump” other switch types use, to provide tactile feedback. Because linear switches don’t have to reset past a bump to detect a repeat press, you’ll enjoy the edge in speed if you’re playing something that requires double or triple-taps. The smoother movement of linear switches also makes these switches quieter than tactile and clicky switches.

HyperX Aqua

HyperX Aqua key switches are tactile-style switches. Unlike linear switches, they have a slight bump in their travel path that helps gives the user confirmation of a keypress. Tactile-style switches fall between clicky switches and linear switches both in terms of their loudness and actuation force. They’re preferred by gamers who want a fast key switch, but prioritize accuracy over speed.

HyperX Blue

HyperX Blue key switches are click-style switches with substantial audible and tactile feedback. Because they typically have a higher actuation force and higher reset positions, they may perform a bit slower in rapid-tap scenarios. If you’re a gamer, writer, or just someone who enjoys the satisfying feel and sounds of clicky switches, though, you won’t mind losing that little bit of speed.

Accolades

"This is one of the finer products in the market right now. The keyboard boasts a fantastic build, excellent lighting, and very ergonomic yet perfect size."

"The Alloy Origins Core RGB is one more well-designed keyboard from HyperX. It combines many features that are important for gamers and delivers all the best for demanding users."

"HyperX Alloy Origins 60 gets the most from its reduced form factor. Clever use of secondary keys take the edge off the key-loss while it fulfils its gaming promise. The heavy weight will keep it nice and secure on your desk while its aluminium core and small size make it portable."

"The HyperX Alloy Origins 60 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a superb little keyboard, undercutting the competition slightly but retaining an overall premium look and feel. If you can live with a limited number of keys, this looks amazing."

"It is extremely petite, yet no less robust, the linear red key switch is familiarly consistent, and a combination of sensible secondary functions and a beautiful spacebar help elevate the overall experience."

"It’s strong, durable, it looks great and it provides a smooth PC gaming experience. We love it, and you will too (or your teens). You will be one popular parent if you buy this for your children this year."

"If you’re looking for impressive RGB and something that is really sturdy this is a great buy. The HyperX Alloy Elite 2 delivers the key specs needed for gaming and it handles itself well in pretty much all situations. The pudding keycaps are also very easy on the eye."
