HyperX has revealed their latest peripheral lineup at CES 2023, bringing details on their new Xbox controller, Pulsefire Haste 2 mice and new collaborative aesthetic add-on.
HyperX shows off why they are a gaming and esports leader, with their latest peripheral lineups at CES 2023. Today, they announced their new HyperX Clutch Gladiate enhanced wired controller (designed for Xbox) and the next-gen HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 gaming mice. The tech company has developed a new personalization program called HX3D along with their great gaming hardware. It takes their gaming peripherals to different heights with HP’s 3D print technology.
More on the HX3D program, the global head of marketing at HyperX, Daniel Kelley shared, “We know gamers love customization, spending a lot of time and effort to update all kinds of in-game items,
from characters to skins to weapons and beyond. HX3D is taking this love of personalizing a gaming experience to the physical world and enabling a wide range of fun ways to update and customize our award-winning HyperX gear.”
HyperX will be presenting its first limited edition keycap at CES 2023—the HyperX Cozy Cat Keycap ($19.99 USD) will be available in the U.S. in January 2023. All HX3D products will be produced by HP Inc. 3D printers, hoping to merge both companies’ strengths of innovative peripherals and colour printing skills into gaming. A video on HyperX’s YouTube channel previewed what kind of special collectibles could be coming. I would love custom-detachable Jhin (from League of Legends) facemasks for my headphones’ outer earmuff shells!
Every product is expected to be made of environmentally friendly re-used powder nylon. HyperX noted how they will be collaborating with “game developers, esports teams, content creators, influencers, and internal creative teams to create and design fan-friendly products that can be used while gaming or collected as keepsakes or cherished collectibles.”
As for the latest peripherals themselves, Kelly continued to explain what HyperX will be bringing to CES 2023: “CES is the perfect venue for HyperX to highlight our commitment to providing high-performance
gaming products for all gamers. Whether you game on an Xbox controller or PC, HyperX is bringing the latest top-quality products for gamers to enjoy with immersive and engaging gaming along with wireless freedom, convenience, and customization.”
The HyperX Clutch Gladiate (starts at $34.99 USD) enhanced wired controller is the first Xbox-certified gaming controller for the company that is said to offer both “ultra-comfort and precise control” for longer gaming sessions like completing raids in Destiny 2. Some highlighted features of the wired controller were its dual trigger locks, remappable rear buttons, dual rumble motors, textured grips and 3.5mm stereo jack—adding something a little extra to what gamers already enjoy in their Xbox controllers.
The next-gen HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 (starts at $59.99 USD Wired/$79.99 USD Wireless) gaming mice are here with their wired and wireless form factors. Both iterations were designed with the ultra-lightweight shell design and deliver buttery quick cursor movements, up to 8,000 Hz polling rates—with their high precision HyperX 26K Sensor with their native DPI settings that range upward of 26,000 DPI.
Each one has virgin-grade PTFE skates to offer gamers that silky smooth glide, and both are compatible with the HyperX NGENUITY app—allowing users to customize their DPI settings, RGB lighting, button assignments, sensor performance and record macros. The wired and wireless designs both come in black or white colourways.
The two versions begin to deviate from each other with a major weight difference. The wired version weighs in at approximately 53g versus the wireless counterpart that is 62g. However, the wireless sibling displays its dominance in versatility, offering dual wireless connectivity with both Bluetooth wireless and 2.4 GHz gaming-grade wireless technology. The Pulsefire Haste 2 wireless gaming mouse was said to last up to 100 hours of battery life on a single charge; that is a lot of hours grinding on Apex Legends and Overwatch 2.
