HyperX Alloy Origins 60

HyperX Alloy Origins 60

The HyperX Alloy Origins 60 is a 60% version of the Alloy Origins.

Robust 60 Percent Keyboard

Having a width below 12 inches (30 cm), the Hyper X Alloy Origins 60 is clearly small and compact. However, thanks to big rubber pads in each corner, the keyboard still provides great stability. It has two flip-out feet per side, so that the keyboard’s angle can be adjusted to three different levels.

The keyboard is tuned for longevity, featuring an aluminum body and durable double-shot PBT keycaps. Just like the standard version, the Alloy Origins 60 also offers flexible RGB lighting, n-key rollover, on-board memory and a detachable USB type C cable. It also features the linear Hyper-X Red Switch. Other switch options are, at least for now, not available. The box contents further include a keycap puller and special keycaps for the space bar and the ESC key.
