At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, Kingston has unveiled several of its brand new HyperX-branded gaming peripherals. These include the flagship HyperX Cloud Revolver S headset, Pulsefire gaming mouse, and three brand new gaming keyboards as well. Prior to this, the company has also showcased another new product called “DataTraveler Ultimate Generation Terabyte” which apparently comes with storage capacities of up to 2TB.
HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset
First up in Kingston’s arsenal of new HyperX gaming peripherals is the HyperX Cloud Revolver S. According to the company, the Cloud Revolver S is its “biggest and baddest” headphones in the HyperX family, essentially making it the current flagship headset for the brand. The headset itself is fitted with 50mm drivers that’s coupled with Dolby 7.1-channel surround sound.
Comfort seems to be the main priority when it comes to Kingston’s HyperX headsets. Gladly, the same can be said about the HyperX Cloud Revolver S, which features memory foam ear cushions and ‘wider than normal’ steel bands – for folks with big heads. Those aside, Kingston’s HyperX Cloud Revolver S gaming headset will be made available in March this year for a price of US$150 (about RM674).
HyperX Pulsefire Gaming Mouse
In addition to showcasing a gaming headset at CES 2017, Kingston has also unveiled its first ever optical gaming mouse called the Pulsefire. At first glance, not much about the company’s new optical gaming mouse screams for attention. It features the usual button layout as one would find in most gaming mice these days.
The Pulsefire gaming mouse does, however, come with four DPI presets: 400, 800, 1600, and 3200, which are adjustable via the DPI button found on top of the gaming mouse. In addition, Kingston has also fitted the Pulsefire with a braided USB cord to increase durability. The HyperX Pulsefire gaming mouse is expected to available in April 2017 for under US$50 (about RM224).
HyperX Alloy Gaming Keyboards
Completing its PC gaming peripheral ecosystem, Kingston has showcased three brand new HyperX gaming keyboard that are interesting based off of the Alloy FPS keyboard which was unveiled earlier in October 2016. The three new variants are called Alloy RGB, Alloy FPS Red, and Alloy FPS Brown.
The crème de la crème amongst the three brand new HyperX gaming keyboards is, of course, the Alloy RGB. Despite the fact that this keyboard has the same design as the Alloy FPS, it does come with LED-lit Cherry MX RGB switches. Unfortunately, the price of this particular variant was not mentioned by Kingston, but the company stated that it should be available in Q3 2017.
Finally, the two remaining HyperX-branded gaming keyboards are the Alloy FPS Red and Alloy FPS Brown. Both keyboards are essentially similar to that of the original Alloy FPS, with the only difference being their respective type of Cherry MX switches. The HyperX Alloy FPS Red and Alloy FPS Brown gaming keyboards will be launched by the end of January and will come with a price tag of US$99.99 (about RM449).
