Keys and Switches

The HyperX Alloy Core RGB model has a minimalist design with a signature RGB strip for the entire length of the case, a slanted and stylized front end, as well as an abundance of multimedia keys. Above and in the middle there is a plastic HyperX logo made for metal.

In the upper left corner, there are three multimedia keys: changing the brightness of the RGB backlight, switching its modes and the function enable button, in which the keyboard locks the Windows key.

In the upper right corner, there are seven more multimedia keys and three LED indicators. Directly above the digital block are buttons for switching tracks on / off, as well as forwarding or switching them. Above them, volume switches are installed, and to their left are three indicators.

The Alloy Core RGB membrane keyboard received silent keys with a tactile response, like gaming models, as well as the Anti-Ghosting feature.

The model in question was equipped with RGB backlighting with three brightness levels and six effects modes (iridescent colours, spectral wave, intermittent, constant, 5 zones and dawn). The glow is bright and uniform, all keys glow the same, no dark zones are noticed.

Due to its relatively small design, quiet keys and the ability to turn off the RGB backlight, the Alloy Core RGB keyboard is suitable for both long gaming sessions and office work.

The buttons are soft and very responsive. With them, it is convenient to type large texts or play action games and FPS. You won’t achieve complete silence while typing, but this is one of the quietest keyboards. I have ever seen or tested. Perhaps there are models and quieter, but I do not know about such.

With a weight of 1.2 Kg, the Alloy Core RGB confidently stands on any surface, does not slip and does not move to the sides during games or printing. The keyboard is hard to move, even if you want.

The keyboard has a reinforced frame made of reinforced plastic and according to the creators it was equipped with a waterproof design that can withstand up to 120 ml of liquid spill. 

HyperX Alloy Core RGB does not support working with the proprietary program HyperX NGenuity, and all available functions are launched using the Fn key combination and seven multimedia buttons.


HyperX Alloy Core RGB gaming keyboard, is decent budget RGB Membrane gaming keyboard. The build quality is very good plastic does not creak and the design does not seem flimsy. Due to the sufficient weight and rubberized legs, this membrane keyboard stably stands on the surface. The backlight is quickly adjusted through the keyboard itself, you can choose your favourite effect or colour, set the brightness or even paint 5 zones of the keyboard in your colours. At the same time the backlight is bright enough, but it does not blind the eyes. The presence of Antighosting technology allows you to work out all the clicks. By the way, the sound from keystrokes is much quieter than that of mechanical keyboards and this is the choice of people who play at night or simply do not like the clicks of switches.
