It seems that HyperX got hooked onto the RGB craze at COMPUTEX 2018 as well. While there are some small upgrades to their peripherals and hardware, the main additions to the products for this year are most notably the addition of “bling bling” RGB lights.
HyperX Pulsefire Surge
The HyperX Pulsefire Surge is an ambidextrous gaming mouse that is created for gamers who are seeking for something simple that works decently well in general. The addition of RGB lightings was also considered to be quite mild, as it’s not all over the place. Moreover, the NGenuity software by HyperX can also control the lighting effects and colours on this mouse, making it one of the most customizable RGB mouse in the market right now.
The HyperX Pulsefire Surge has also been refreshed with a new PixArt 3389 optical sensor that can achieve a mouse accuracy of up of 16,000dpi.
HyperX Fury RGB
The HyperX Fury SSD has been in the market for quite a while. So why not just slap some RGB goodness in it? The HyperX Fury RGB shown at the showroom at COMPUTEX 2018 is not a final product, as the representative mentioned that they are still finding out if such a bold new design can be accepted by end-users. Nonetheless, the HyperX Fury RGB sure allows the SSD to stand out from the case with it brightly lit RGB LEDs.
HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB
The HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB has already been out in the market for quite a while. These DIMMs are uniquely designed to have their+ RGB lighting synchronized with HyperX’s own Infrared Sync technology, thus removing the need for additional cables. The Predator DDR4 RGB are available with speeds of up to 3600MHz and low CL12 – CL17 latencies.
HyperX Alloy FPS RGB
If you remembered our review of the HyperX Alloy FPS a year back, the HyperX Alloy FPS RGB should be familiar to you. In fact, both keyboards are identical in design. HyperX made 2 main changes to this model – they’ve included RGB lighting, and added the availability of Kailh Silver Speed switches. It is expected that the inclusion of Kailh switches could bring down the cost of the keyboard for better mass adoption of gamers.
Unlike traditional RGB Gaming keyboards, the HyperX Alloy FPS RGB has their RGB LEDs placed directly into the switch area of the keys. This allows the RGB lighting to be reflected directly onto the base of the keyboard, showing off the differences for a floating key design.
While RGB products are getting mainstream, with many brands and manufacturers simply adding RGB to new products, we were glad that HyperX still continued to make sure that these additions do not come at the expense of performance. However, we do hope to see more innovation coming from HyperX for gaming products, especially with the blooming e-sports and gaming population around the world.
