The HyperX Alloy Origins is a compact, sturdy keyboard featuring custom HyperX mechanical switches designed to give gamers the best blend of style, performance, and reliability. These key switches have exposed LEDs for stunning lighting with an actuation force and travel distance elegantly balanced for responsiveness and accuracy. Alloy Origins is built with a full aluminum body so it stays rigid and stable when keystrokes are flying, and also features keyboard feet that let you choose from three different tilt levels. Its sleek, compact design frees up space for mouse movement, and it also features a detachable USB-C cable for supreme portability. Customize your lighting, craft macros, and adjust Game Mode with HyperX NGENUITY Software. This powerful, yet easy-to-use program lets you set per-key lighting, layer dazzling lighting effects, and add scores of other personalized touches to your NGENUITY-compatible products.

HyperX mechanical switches

The key switches are custom-designed to be a balance of responsiveness and accuracy, featuring a short travel time and low actuation force. They’re also reliable, rated for 80 million keypresses with no loss of quality.

Full aircraft-grade aluminum body

The aluminum casing keeps the keyboard structurally sound and stable when the action gets intense and the game hangs in the balance; battle after battle, night after night.

Compact, portable design with detachable USB-C cable

The small footprint gives you plenty of room for rapid mouse movements. It also has a detachable cable so it’s easy to take on the go.

RGB backlit keys with radiant lighting effects

HyperX mechanical switches feature an exposed LED for brighter, more luminous RGB lighting.

Advanced customization with HyperX NGENUITY Software

Customize Game Mode, take greater control over lighting effects, and set up your own macros.

Three adjustable keyboard tilt angles

Adjust the two-step keyboard feet for three different angle settings (3°, 7°, or 11°), whichever makes your wrists the most comfortable.

Onboard memory for three profiles

Create your own custom-designed lightshows, save them directly to the keyboard, and take them with you on the go.

Game Mode, 100% anti-ghosting, and N-key rollover

Ensure that all your keypresses register and that you’re not accidentally taking yourself out of the game in key moments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Netta418 from Love the keyboard, Ngenuity not so much Love keyboard, software not so much. The software incompatibility with Mac significantly hinders the using/changing color profiles. I was easily able to change keyboard shortcuts. It shouldn’t be that hard for NGenuity to be accessible on Mac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raiyan from Amazing & Quality Keyboard This keyboard sounds amazing, it isn't too clickily and has a soft padding like click. The curved keycaps is a nice touch as well as the detachable cable.

How do I change the backlighting? Is there a certain key command?

Asked by: Xion Skullz
Hello. Thanks for your question. You would need to download the HyperX NGenuity software to change the backlighting: https://hyperx.com/pages/ngenuity
