HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, has announced its second collaboration with keyboard manufacturing company DuckyChannel International– for the limited-edition HyperX x Ducky One 2 Mini mechanical gaming keyboard.
Built with a black colourway and 60 per cent form factor, HyperX x Ducky One 2 Mini features HyperX red linear mechanical switches built for performance, longevity and an 80 million lifetime click rating per switch. The keyboard includes RGB exposed backlit keys for brighter illumination with radiant lighting effects and utilises the Ducky One 2 Mini keyboard design and Ducky PBT double-shot seamless keycaps.
“Known in the gaming market for their high-quality and performance-oriented mechanical keyboards, we are excited to join forces with Ducky again on our second limited-edition keyboard collaboration. The HyperX x Ducky One 2 Mini is a great addition to the HyperX keyboard line-up and provides HyperX and Ducky fans with a new all-black colour option to complement their gaming system configurations,” said HyperX keyboard business manager Jennifer Ishii.
