By the time the great Keyboard Switch Wars are over, every company will have its own custom-built switches. Thatâ€™s what happens when patents expire, I guess. The latest to join the boutique switch trend? HyperX, who used traditional Cherry MX switches through 2018, then switched to Kailh, and now has switched a second time to its own HyperX-branded line.
Itâ€™s a move so bold, HyperX created a whole new keyboard to give its switches a home. Orâ€¦well, they renamed one of their existing keyboard models, I guess. Meet the HyperX Alloy Origins, twin to the HyperX Alloy FPSâ€”at least on the surface.
