Over the years, hardware makers have been trying to come up with new ways to make gaming more immersive. Emerging technologies like Virtual Reality show promise, but for racing game fans, nothing quite beats a full racing simulator setup. The folks at PCSpecialist have teamed up with Milltek to produce a brand new racing simulator, which will be available in the UK.
This partnership is a result of PCSpecialist’s ongoing cooperation with PowerMaxed Racing. Milltek is well-known in the motorsport scene, and with some help from their technical experts, PCSpecialist has developed a professional grade simulator frame, all designed, developed and hand-finished here in the UK. There will be two options for potential buyers, one for a single-monitor setup and another to support multi-monitors.
The frame itself is from Milltek, while the seat comes from Cobra Motorsport. The pedals, gear shifter and wheel all come from Fanatec.
The PC itself is fully configurable, the standard system comes with a Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and integrated graphics. However, buyers can upgrade up to a Core i7-8700K, up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM and up to a GTX 1080Ti or Radeon Vega 64.
Pricing starts at £3,288 for the single-monitor frame racing sim, and jumps to £3,465 for the multi-monitor frame. Upgraded seats, peripherals and PC hardware will all be available and will have an impact on the final price. You can see PCSpecialist’s full racing sim configurator, HERE.
KitGuru Says: I’ve only had the chance to try out a fully kitted racing simulator a couple of times, but it was a really cool experience. Are any of you big fans of racing sims? Are you thinking about getting one of your own?
