While also not directly related to my in-game experience, I can’t state enough how gorgeous the backlighting looks.

This is likely due to the limited support in the bottom half of the fame, and whether flat or on its extended feet, the noise and feeling was there. The keyboard itself will look familiar to people familiar with HyperX keyboard offerings, especially given it is a full-size keyboard in a completely black color scheme and minimalist design based off the Alloy FPS out of the box. But when it came time to make the Alloy FPS RGB, apparently HyperX opted for Kailh Silver Speed switches instead of Cherry. Not many people move their keyboard around day-to-day, and I assume even fewer think it needs the protection afforded by a soft cloth bag. Due to its compact design media controls rely on secondary functions (FN + F10/F11 for volume control, etc.Great for gaming where typing accuracy doesnt matter - otherwise not suitable for the purpose it was dessigned, ,,, as a keyboard! It’s only available with linear Kailh Silver Speed switches, which don’t give any feedback at all but feel very light and responsive. Having such a high actuation point and light pressure, they’re easy to accidentally press, even from sloppy movements across the keyboard.

The HyperX Alloy FPS RGB is compatible with the HyperX NGENUITY software, which is only available on Windows. By default you get the standard rainbow wave, and you can press Fn + F1 through F3 to check out two more included defaults: red with a breathing effect or all blue with WASD and 1234 in white. There is a subtle chamfer along the keyboard’s edges, which looks good and is comfier to rest your fingers on than a boxier design. The layout is also completely standard, with ISO (UK, Europe) and ANSI (US, China) variants available. MX Brown and MX Red models followed in the spring, but even so, it was clear HyperX was just testing the waters.In English, it only takes a light touch to trigger a key press, making it great for gaming, but less so for typing. At the front of the keyboard we find the micro USB port for the detachable cable and the USB charging port. Since it’s fabric, it doesn’t make you sweat and stick to it like the leatherette rests out there, and the memory foam is clearly superior to the standard cushions in competitor options. Here you can see some of the available effects and colors you can use with the Alloy FPS RGB (including the one we made with 7 custom lighting zones).

The FPS RGB is a fairly large full-sized keyboard that comes with full RGB backlighting, macro-programmable keys, and outstanding software support for easy customization. Durable Kailh Silver Speed keyswitches are rated for 70 million keypresses and feature an ultra-light actuation force making it ideal for gamers looking to get every extra split-second of advantage over their rivals. The Alloy FPS RGB has a small footprint geared for space-constrained setups so you’ll get room to manoeuvre without having to ramp up your mouse sensitivity. The SteelSeries Apex 7 TKL is a better overall keyboard than the HyperX Alloy FPS RGB, though both are exceptional for gaming. The key switches are custom-designed to be a balance of responsiveness and accuracy, featuring a short travel time and low actuation force.For more on the NGenuity software you can refer back to the HyperX Alloy Elite keyboard review here. This update adds several new tests addressing Hardware Customization, Macro Keys And Programming, and Wireless Mobile Compatibility. connections are clearly marked as to which makes the keyboard function, and which is for the charging port. That means you can pick up after-market keycap sets (including HyperX’s own pudding caps) from anywhere and customise the look and feel of the keyboard to your liking – something not possible with many Razer and Corsair keyboards, which use different key sizes on the bottom row. For comparison, an MX Red has a 45g actuation force and 4 mm overall travel, so I was expecting a different feel.
