At CES 2023, HyperX, an HP team focusing on gaming peripherals announced their latest gaming controller and gaming mouse – the Clutch Gladiate and next-gen Pulsefire Haste 2.

HyperX claims they are very confident in their own gaming peripherals and believe they can deliver a top-notch experience for players in terms of comfort, immersion and customization.

HyperX Clutch Gladiate is a wired gaming controller tailored specifically for Xbox and PC players. It is designed to enhance the gaming experience and maximize game performance as much as possible. In order to allow different players to optimize the control according to their own preferences, this officially licensed Xbox controller will bring you dual trigger locks and mappable rear buttons. Not only that, strong twin rumble motors provide deep and intuitive force feedback. Clutch Gladiate also has textured grips for a pleasant, solid hold on the controller, as well as a 3.5mm stereo socket for connecting to a wired headset.

Next up, is the whole new Pulsefire Haste 2 gaming mouse. This peripheral comes in two variants – wired and wireless versions. The full-shell design, which replaces the honeycomb shell that the Pulsefire Haste line is renowned for while remaining lightweight, is one of the most substantial changes to the mouse.
