Corsair has added a new throne to its gaming chair range. The Corsair T3 Rush is the new piece of gaming furniture and it looks like a traditionally styled but (motor-) sporty office chair. It features the usual Corsair gaming chair niceties like adjustable 4D armrests and seat back. However, this time around, Corsair has upholstered a gaming chair with soft breathable fabric - which might be a bonus depending upon preference or the climate where you live in the world.

Corsair says that the new T3 Rush gaming chair is constructed using an "immensely durable solid steel frame". Padding this out is a selection of foam and memory foam in the seat, back, lumbar and neck pillows. Using fabric upholstery for the first time (neck and lumbar cushions are said to be 'microfibre') means that the chair will "retain minimal heat for cool and comfortable gaming all day and night".

As usual the Corsair T3 Rush is highly adjustable. The 4D armrests can be adjusted in any direction, while the seat back can go from fully upright to flat - 90 to 180° reclining range. This range is augmented with 10° of lockable seat tilt. Another useful adjustment is of 100mm in seat height - for this Corsair uses a class 4 gas-lift mechanism. The Corsair T3 Rush should be OK to roll on most living space surfaces with its 5x 65mm heavy-duty casters.

In an email to HEXUS, Corsair said that the new T3 Rush gaming chair is available immediately but that wasn't the case at the time of writing, and I found that the product video had been taken down for some reason (but the assembly guide remained). Checking the US site, it wasn't listed at all…

When it does become available, and it should be shortly, the Corsair T3 Rush gaming chair will be available in three colours; charcoal, charcoal/grey, and white/grey. Buyers get a two year warranty. Nosing around a bit, I spotted the chair for pre-order in Holland for €279.

It's about time someone released a “gaming chair” that won't look overly out of place in a living room or a modern, minimalist bedroom.
It's a shame they have gone for fabric this time around. Their last chair was fairly well regarded before they pulled it (at least, as far as “racing” chairs go), and i was considering something similar this time around…but I hate fabric chairs, especially at this sort of price.

Shame really, hopefully they will put out a PU and maybe even real leather version too.
It's a gaming chair. It looks like every other gaming chair… and every second seat in a Kevved up hot hatch car.

I've always found far better results from just picking a good, solid office chair designed for 24hr use. It has a far wider and better range of adjustability, vastly superior support, and is built to take far more use and abuse, often costing less than these gaming ones… I've also tried the gaming ones my friends have and remain wholly unimpressed.
4D adjustable armrests? So they are capable of time travel?
Apart from looking like they've been torn out of a car, I'm not sure what makes gaming chairs worth the premium over entry-level operator chairs. Just seems like more “gaming” bandwagon.

I pine for an Aeron, but that's silly money.
