PC manufacturer HP has completed the purchase of HyperX from Kingston, in a deal worth $425 million.
HyperX has operated as a gaming-focused brand underneath Kingston, producing numerous PC gaming peripherals ranging from headsets to microphones. The brand most notably produced the Cloud range of headsets for PC, which have been lauded for comfort and sound quality across many iterations.
HP, on the other hand, has been struggling to penetrate the peripherals market with its own gaming sub-brand, Omen. Although the name its associated with the company’s line of gaming laptops which have sold well, it hasn’t had the same effect with its peripheral products when compared to competitors such as Razer, Corsair, Logitech, and more.
