Custom Gaming PCs for iRacing

According to iRacing, the recommended PC specs are an Intel Core i7-8700k (or equivalent), 16 GB of RAM, 6 GB dedicated vRAM (ex. GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB), 50 GB of storage to fit all cars and tracks, and some sort of steering wheel and pedal combo.

We recommend not going for any hardware below these specs to ensure the experience is worthwhile. However, the minimum requirements are a 4 core CPU (ex. Intel Core i5-4430), 16 GB of RAM, 2 GB dedicated vRAM, and 25 GB of storage.

As timing, balance, and accuracy are key in racing simulators, a lower-tier PC may limit your performance on track. Any drop in frame rate could cause slower lap times, any connection issues could ruin online multiplayer race battles (which may affect your safety rating and limit you to select multiplayer events), and lower graphic settings could spoil the immersion of the simulator.

The developers of iRacing have partnered with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team to incorporate several new vehicles into the game. Mercedes' W12 E Performance and 2022 Challenger will be drivable models in the near future. iRacing's development team is working alongside the Mercedes F1 racing team to recreate the driving experience, performance perspective and physics models of Mercedes' winningest machines. Updated track venues include the HockenheimRing, Red Bull Ring, Hungaroring and more. Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team will be instrumental in further refining iRacing's authentic racing simulator.

Creative is an intangible. There aren’t many great creatives in radio. In branding there are less. In strategizing there are even less. Most companies have no BRAND. The products and services are amazing, the businesses are often brilliant. There is just nothing for consumers to grab and buckle themselves into. The web sites are also no influence in creating the brand, brand strategy, ad concept or ads.

iNET creative has dozens of mind traps and hooks. Duplicitous meanings and meanings left for the listener to decipher or wonder at. While these traps can get a listener stuck in a thought midstream over two, three, twenty exposures they force acceptance of the message and action. When they discover the hidden hooks listeners feel like insiders, part of the story and part of the brand.

We boast a full service marketing and advertising agency dedicated to promoting your business across all channels. Unlike other Milwaukee advertising agencies, iNET provides a variety of print and multimedia marketing platforms and strategies customized to suit the unique needs of your business.
