PAX Australia 2018 - HyperX is making PC gaming more affordable

Every year at PAX Australia, countless video games are shown off, giving players a chance to experience some wonderous adventures, but another aspect that seems to grow each year are the hardware makers, showing off the latest and greatest, as well as some classics.

HyperX were once again at PAX, showing off some new models of their mice and keyboard offerings, some new headphones and somethings, you might not have expected. Kicking things off are the latest in the mouse and keyboard range, the Alloy Core gaming keyboard and the Pulsefire Core mouse, with both of them aimed at more of an entry level gamer, rather than say the Alloy Elite or Pulsefire FPS Pro.

Those who are in the market for a new keyboard, the Alloy Core is going to offer you a rock-solid gaming experience, at a more moderate price, though what that price is, has yet to be confirmed. One of the major differences in this keyboard than the others that they are selling is that this uses a membrane under the keys, rather than the mechanical that most gamers would expect. While the type of key is different, it still is set to offer incredible response times and exceptional length of use and it even has the godsend of being able to protect itself, if you spill a little liquid on it. As you might expect the keyboard offers up for RGB support, with multiple brightness levels and support for the NGenuity lighting system they have.

If your keyboard is fine, but you are in need of a new mouse then the Pulsefire Core is something you should keep your eyes out for.

The mouse features an ergonomically-designed body and has textured side grips for a comfortable, no-slip grip, and its symmetrical shape is suitable for both palm and claw grip. Add in the fact that it has a Pixart 3327 optical sensor built in as well and you will always experience precise, smooth tracking with no hardware acceleration, and has native DPI settings up to 6200 DPI. Like the keyboard it is aimed at the more budget focused gamer, but still rocks the RBG lighting controls that you would find on their higher end mice.

Both devices are due out in time for the holiday season, but no pricing has been announced yet, given their target audience though, I would expect the keyboard to be priced between $100 and $150, with the mouse going for $60 to $100, but once I get the pricing I will be sure to let you know.
