Since spinning off from Kingston, HyperX is now a part of the HP family, and this was our first CES meeting with them under their new banner. While not bringing a ton of new gear to the show, we did want to highlight two of their upcoming offerings – 3D Personalization, and the Pulsefire Haste 2.
If you’ve been paying any sort of attention to the PC peripheral world, you will know just how popular custom keyboards are. With the ability to fine-tune your keyboard just to your liking, it is no surprise that HyperX has brought their own version of customization to the table.
Their fully colored 3D printed keycaps and peripheral accessories let you add a bit of HyperX flare to your keyboard and desk setup. Launching on January 26, 2023, Coco the cat, part of the Cozy Cat collection, will be available as a limited edition drop for just $19.99 on the HyperX website. This and other custom keycaps from HyperX support the HyperX stem design, and HyperX was even showing off custom headset and microphone stands/holders for their headsets and microphones.
Pulsefire Haste 2
Following in the footsteps of the Pulsefire Haste, the Haste 2 changes things up a bit, while still offering a lightweight design. Gone is the open honeycomb design from the upper shell of the mouse, which will eliminate the chances of dust and other debris from getting into the body of the mouse. Equipped with HyperX switches and a custom 26k DPI sensor, the Haste 2 is built for speed and durability. The wired Haste 2 also features 8K polling. Both mice are very lightweight; the wireless version is 61g, while the wired is 53g.
Available in black and white color schemes, as well as in wired and wireless versions, the Pulsefire Haste 2 is a mouse we can’t wait to get our hands on to put through the paces, as the Haste was an instant favorite of ours.
Both versions of the Pulsefire Haste 2 will be available in April, with the wired Pulsefire Haste 2 coming in at $59, and the wireless version at $79
