Fractal Design Unveils New Gaming Chair, Headset, and PC Cases at Computex 2024

Fractal Design, a well-known Swedish company famous for its unique PC cases, has expanded its product lineup with the introduction of its first gaming chair and headset at Computex 2024. In addition to these new peripherals, Fractal also showcased a couple of new small-footprint PC cases.

The new gaming chair, named “Refine,” combines ergonomic comfort with intuitive controls and a sleek design that aims to enhance the gaming experience. Available in mesh, fabric, and Alcantara finishes, the Refine features a fluid synchro-tilt mechanism, 4D armrests, and adjustable lumbar support. Priced at $549.99 for mesh and fabric variants, and $899.99 for the Alcantara finish, the Fractal Refine is set to hit the market in Q3 2024.

The company’s first headset, called “Scape,” is a wireless over-ear design with a flip-down boom mic. Offering low-latency 2.4GHz wireless connectivity and multi-device Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity, the Scape also includes ambient lighting and audio presets that can be customized using Fractal’s Adjust Pro online configuration tool. The headset is expected to launch later this year with a price tag of $199.99.

Fractal also introduced a new cloth-covered PC case named “Mood” and an updated version of its Era case, the Era 2. The Era 2 boasts improved cooling capabilities and ventilation on all sides, addressing the airflow issues that plagued its predecessor. Priced at $199.99, the Fractal Era 2 will be available in Q3 2024 in three color options.

Overall, Fractal’s latest announcements at Computex 2024 showcase the company’s commitment to providing innovative and functional products for gamers and PC enthusiasts alike.
