HyperX Alloy Origins 60 vs HyperX x Ducky One 2 vs Ducky One 2 Mini
Previously HyperX did a collaboration with Ducky for the HyperX x Ducky One 2. This was a limited run of 3,700 units worldwide. That launched at $109 USD, I can’t find the UK pricing, but I assume £109, which is also the price of the HyperX Alloy Origins 60.
