Razer just announced that its Iskur X gaming chair is now available. Billed as the company’s most affordable gaming chair — it doesn’t come with crazy fold-out OLED displays like the concept Project Brooklyn — the Iskur X comes with an ergonomic design comprising high-density foam cushions, durable synthetic leather, and a steel-reinforced body that’s made for hours of gaming.

The company claimed that the Iskur X is designed for maximum comfort and engineered for lasting durability. The chair supports up to 136 kilograms of weight — or 520 pounds — and features a sculpted backrest that contours to the natural curvature of your spine. A 2D armrest to minimize wrist and shoulder strain and angled seat edge for leg and thigh support round out the ergonomic design. The chair also supports multiple recline positions and can be repositioned during long gaming sessions.

In terms of the material, Razer stated that the synthetic leather feels and looks great. It is coated with a resin layer for shine on the surface and comes with a multilayered synthetic polyurethane fabric to withstand peeling from hours of daily use.

In addition to its gaming chair, Razer also launched separate Razer Head Cushion and Razer Lumbar Cushions for added support, which you can use with the Iskur X or your existing gaming chair. These cushions help to improve your posture and support your body for improved ergonomics. The Razer Lumbar Cushion, for instance, helps set the spine in a neutral position with its memory foam padding, according to the company. The Head Cushion, on the other hand, contours to your head for even more balance and support. You can add the Head Cushion to the top of your gaming chair, while the Lumbar Cushion is designed to rest on the lower-back portion of your chair.

All three components are available now on and through authorized retailers, the company said. The Razer Iskur X gaming chair retails for $399, while the Razer Head Cushion is priced at $39 and the Lumbar Cushion comes in at $49. The Iskur X joins Razer’s existing Iskur, which comes in at $499, or a $100 premium over the Iskur X.

Official press renders of the Cougar NxSys Aero gaming chair.

Among the top gaming chairs, you'll find models that not only prioritize comfort, but also provide excellent body support to keep you feeling fresh even during extended gaming sessions. While we've witnessed various innovations in design, materials, and reclining mechanisms, Cougar's NxSys Aero gaming chair truly stands out and deserves recognition.

Featuring a 200mm RGB fan integrated into the chair’s back, it is the first such product in its category. The innovative elastomeric mesh and ventilated back cover work together with the fan to promote optimal airflow throughout the chair, effectively cooling the user's back. The company states that the hollow area between the mesh and the specially ventilated back cover acts as adaptive cushioning, creating a sensation akin to "floating on air."

One of the most ambitious gaming laptops just got even better
Someone using the Razer Blade 14 on a table.

The Razer Blade 14 has long been one of my favorite gaming laptops, especially when we're talking about extremely compact, yet powerful options. For 2023, Razer has now announced an upgrade to the machine, bringing not only the latest RTX 40-series graphics, but also up to the anticipated new AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS processor.

I call it "ambitious" because it was an attempt to reduce the size of the popular Razer Blade formula down to something even smaller: a true "stealth" gaming laptop, and a great vehicle for AMD's Ryzen platform.

Control protagonist Jesse explores the game's facility.

DirectX 12 is the latest graphics API that powers Windows 11, but many of the best PC games still either run on DirectX 11 or include an option to switch. Which should you choose?

Although most updates to DirectX are iterative, DirectX 12 represents a massive shift for the API Microsoft has been developing for several decades. It can massively improve performance in your games, and it has a few unique features that DirectX 11 doesn't have access to.
Graphics APIs aren't equal
