Memory manufacturer Kingston has recently been expanding their lineup through diversion into the computer peripheral category. This year’s CES was no different, with several new products due out later this year including headsets and keyboards.
First off, Hyper X introduced a new gaming headset that has plug-and-play Dolby Surround Sound. This headset, dubbed the HyperX Cloud Revolver S, will sell for $149.99 and requires no software to enable the Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound. This technology is added into a USB dongle that only requires plug-in usage. The Cloud Revolver X ships later this year.
Next, a new RGB keyboard was revealed. With the standard 16 million LED color combinations and dedicated media keys, this new keyboard, dubbed the Alloy, offers dynamic lighting profiles and controls. The keys are now equipped with Cherry MX switches (red, blue, and brown). The predecessor Alloy keyboard only had blue switches. According to HyperX, this ships Q3 2017 with no price announced yet. The Brown and Red switch models will sell for the standard $99.99.
In the gaming mouse lineup, HyperX revealed their optical Pulsefire gaming mouse with LED indicators set at 400, 800, 1600, and 3200 DPI, which can be modified without software. This mouse sells for $49.99 and will ship in April. Finally, with the new motherboards out from GIGABYTE which feature extensive RGB lighting and controls with the LED Fusion software, HyperX has decided to unveil their new DDR4 Predator LED memory which features RGB lighting, an improvement over its predecessor which only allowed for red LED lighting. This RGB LED module can be paired with RGB motherboards such as the ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, or MSI Mystic Light Sync. No price announced, and the modules ship later this year.
With these new products, gaming peripherals now have quite a few more options, and it is great that HyperX is throwing their hat into the ring with these products.
