Alex Alderson,

Akasa announced three new fanless cases for the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B at the end of May, of which the Gem Pro was one. Now, the company has formally announced the pricing of said case. According to Akasa, the case has a "gem-like" top that supposedly improves cooling. The company includes thermal pads and aluminium blocks to maximise the case's cooling efficiency too. 

The Gem Pro is made from aluminium and finished in silver. According to Akasa, the case has been sandblasted and anodised. The Gem Pro measures 96 x 75.6 x 34.4 mm and provides access to the Model B's GPIO, microSD card reader and its full selection of ports.

Akasa states that the Gem Pro starts at £24.75 and recommends contacting its sales team to find your closest retailer. Currently, we can only find the Gem Pro on PerformancePCs.com where it sells for US$30.95.
