Logitech G, a division of computer peripherals maker Logitech, has released the Logitech G923 Racing Wheel and Pedals, a high-performance racing wheel that revolutionises the sim racing experience for the PC and Xbox.

According to Wikipedia, sim racing is a collective term for computer software that attempts to accurately simulate auto racing, complete with real-world variables such as fuel usage, damage, tyre wear and grip, and suspension settings.

In a statement, the company said the G923, which as engineered for maximum realism, featured TRUEFORCE a new high-definition force feedback system that dialled into a game's physics and audio engine to deliver what is claimed to be an ultra-realistic experience.

"A great force-feedback racing wheel can be the difference between crossing the finish line first and spinning off the track and not finishing at all," said McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris.

"The new Logitech G923 wheel with TRUEFORCE gives drivers an authentic experience behind the wheel and simulates the details we feel as racing drivers.

"I can feel if the rear of the car loses grip or if I'm about to spin, which gives me the best chance to quickly correct it, and stay ahead of the competition."

Logitech G described TRUEFORCE as a proprietary high-definition force feedback technology that revolutionised what was possible in racing games.

"Using actual game physics and audio in real time, it allows players to feel things like the roar of an engine, tyre traction, the terrain of the track, and feedback of the steering wheel more than ever before," the company said.

"TRUEFORCE connects directly to in-game engines, processing at up to 4000 times per second to produce realism and detail in supported games."

Ujesh Desai, general manager at Logitech G, said: "For the last few years, we've been working with sim drivers, and professional race car drivers to develop a full-featured, realistic driving experience like no other.

"With TRUEFORCE you really get to feel the road, along with all the subtle features of the race car. It truly elevates the experience, and everyone we've had try it always walks away with a smile!"

The Logitech G923 Racing Wheel and Pedals is available for PC and Xbox One, and will be compatible with the new Xbox Series X when it launches later this year.

The device will be available this month at a suggested retail price of $799.95.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
