HyperX Announced Some Sweet New Gear at CES 2018

As we all know, it is that time of year for the latest and greatest tech to be announced at CES! Well our good friends at HyperX have announced some new pieces of gear that are really nice looking, to include their very first wireless gaming headset! So lets get into some of this new tech.

The HyperX Cloud Flight Wireless Headset is their latest and greatest in gaming headset technology. This beast boasts an optimal 30 hours of battery life, which is the longest battery life of any other wireless headset on the market right now. This headset immerses you like never before with closed off, 90 degree rotating ear cups. The Cloud Flight boasts 50mm drivers that broadcast at 2.4Ghz to provide you with some of the best sound. This headset is for PC, Playstation 4 and the Playstation 4 Pro and comes with controls for LED effects, mic mute, power and volume! Check out a short video for it below.

The next piece of tech from HyperX is their new Alloy Elite RGB Mechanical Keyboard. This seems to be a colorful upgrade to their already excellent keyboard, the Alloy Elite. It is worth noting that this is HyperX’s first fully RGB mechanical gaming keyboard, something I wanted in the Elite (You can see that review here). You are able to save up to three color profiles that can save to the keyboards on-board memory. The coloration is powered by NGenuity software, so your color effects are going to be insane. You are going to get all of the features of the Alloy Elite here featuring a steel frame, media buttons, USB 2.0 access and more. This keyboard is available in brown, red, or blue CHERRY MX switches. Check out a short video below.

The HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB Mouse was next out of HyperX’s arsenal this year. This mouse features a 360 degree field of lighting, meaning you get beautiful lights all the way around. The mouse features the Pixart 3389 sensor for high accuracy and speed, with settings up to 16,000 DPI. With some customizable settings, you will be able to monitor your mouse’s settings via LED indicators. The Omron switches on the mouse guarantee a 50M click reliability, thats a lot of clicks. To top it off, HyperX threw their NGenuity software in this bad boy so gamers can assign their own personal macro functions to the six programmable keys and store them in a macro library.

Last, but certainly not least, is quite possibly the most exciting announcement from HyperX, is their new Predator DDR4 RGB Memory, the world’s first infrared synchronized RGB memory. HyperX designed IR communication channels into each module, so multiple modules to sync LED lighting for exceptional color and patterns. These are powered straight from the motherboard as well, so there are no extra cables you need to maintain to make sure your lighting is on point. You can see a video of this groundbreaking hardware below. It is safe to say that HyperX had an excellent year at CES in 2018, can’t wait to try out these new products, I’m a sucker for some good lighting!
