HyperX hasn’t launched much new at CES 2021, three of the products are already available in the US but will now be expanded to the UK and Europe.
HyperX Alloy Origins 60 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
This is the stand out the announcement from the gaming brand. The HyperX Alloy Origins 60 Mechanical is a 60% keyboard, the smallest HyperX has released and quite a bit smaller than the popular tenkeyless style, which is 80%.
The form factor is ideal for gamers who want to keep a minimalist appearance.
The keyboard uses HyperX red linear mechanical switches designed with a shorter actuation point and shorter travel time for more responsive switch action. HyperX Alloy Origins 60 utilises exposed LED designs of HyperX Red switches and PBT double-shot keycaps with secondary functions printed on the sides for quick recognition. HyperX NGENUITY software allows users to personalise lighting, Game Mode and macro settings, offering up to three profiles with on-board memory.
It will be available in the US from 22nd February for MSRP $99.99 on HyperX Shop. Available in EMEA from 22nd no specific price for our side of the pond.
HyperX ChargePlay Duo Controller Charging Station for Xbox
The other new launch is the HyperX ChargePlay which is an officially licenced accessory. It allows you to charge Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One wireless controllers. Two additional battery doors will be included to fit onto Xbox Series X/S wireless controllers. The product features a quick docking design on the weighted base and LED indicators that display charging status for each controller. Each ChargePlay Duo also includes two 1400mAH rechargeable battery packs.
No word on UK or EU price or availability, but it will be available in the US on HyperX Shop in February for MSRP $39.99
Pulsefire Gaming Mouse
The Pulsefire Haste features an ultra-light honeycomb hex shell design for ventilation and fast movement. It also has TTC Golden Macro Dustproof switches with 60 million click durability, six programmable buttons and onboard memory. It is made with low-friction, pure virgin-grade PTFE skates that allow you to effortlessly glide the mouse across surfaces, and the HyperFlex USB cable helps reduce tension and resistance. It was originally released for the United States only, but now you can get this globally from HyperX for MSRP £49.99 / €59.99.
Cloud II Wireless Gaming Headset & Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset + 7.1 UK availability
Finally, the other announcement was for two headsets which have been available in the US but finally found the way over here.
Building on the legacy of the wired Cloud II’s design, comfort, performance, and durability, Cloud II Wireless offers immersive in-game audio experiences. The headset features HyperX custom-tuned virtual 7.1 surround sound and 53mm drivers delivering rich and clear sound for gaming, working from home and distanced learning.

The Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset + 7.1 features immersive sound, wide audio range, a studio-grade sound stage along with signature HyperX comfort and durability. Cloud Revolver + 7.1 with virtual surround sound offers 50mm, directional drivers, to deliver greater depth and width for improved audio precisions in first-person shooter and open environment games. The tuning of the driver, the mechanical design of the acoustical chamber, and larger ear cups allow users to clearly and accurately hear an opponent for ultimate competitive advantage while gaming.
