Logitech today announced its new console and PC steering wheel, called the Logitech G923, a direct heir to the G29 and G920 launched in 2015.
At first glance, the design of the new steering wheel is very similar to the previous one, but the big news is inside: Trueforce technology. This is a new high-definition force feedback system that connects to the audio engine and game physics to provide a more realistic driving experience.
It’ll make you feel things like engine roar, tyre traction, track ground and, of course, force feedback from the steering wheel. To achieve this, it connects directly to the game engine, processing information up to 4000 times per second.
However, to benefit from Trueforce technology the title has to be compatible. At the moment, GRID, Assetto Corsa Competizione and Gran Turismo Sport are supported, but other games are expected to be updated to support this technology in the near future.
The brake pedals have also been reworked, an aspect that was criticized in the previous generation due to its excessive hardness. They now have a new progressive spring for a more responsive feel, with more responsiveness and control over the pedal.
Programmable dual-clutch controls have also been added to provide maximum traction and minimum smoke, allowing for cleaner and faster starts.
Although the G29 for PS4 and PC already included it, the G923 for Xbox One and PC now also features an LED rev indicator that shows the RPM range we’re going to in order to optimize gear shifting to the maximum.
A 24-point selection wheel has also been added from which we can quickly adjust traction, torque, automatic stability management or braking force, among other things.
Both the PS4 and Xbox One versions, which are PC-compatible, incorporate the standard controls of each console so you can comfortably navigate through the menus without having to pull the traditional pad.
Both steering wheels will be compatible with PS5 and Xbox Series X, respectively, when they are released later this year.
The Logitech G923 will go on sale in the next few days for $399.99.
