GRAN TURISMO FANS, we are excited to announce that the new Thrustmaster T-GT II is coming to our store. You Beauty!
With Gran Turismo 7 only a few short months away, this is excellent news for the PlayStation faithful, who are itching for the best sim set purposely designed for the franchise.
For almost 24 years, the Gran Turismo has pushed the limits of console gaming, and we now have the Wheelbase, Rim and Pedal set that will showcase the growth of racing technology.
Officially licensed for PlayStation 5 and Gran Turismo, the Thrustmaster T-GT II encapsulates the nine key components you desire in a Wheel Base.
Each attribute of the T-GT II has been executed with care and meticulousness for the benefit of the proud owner.
Drift management is a must for all drivers who need to control their car’s skidding in turns carefully.
With this in mind, T-GT II employs a technology allowing for real-time drift curve calculation (T-DCC), thereby maintaining the responsiveness of both the wheel and the car in the game in all circumstances. This built-in T-DCC feature allows drivers to focus their attention on making exact movements always to stay one or two steps ahead in their driving.
The Thrustmaster T-GT II racing wheel ensures perfectly linear Force Feedback effects: the force felt by the user is 100% proportional to the force determined in the game. Cars’ behaviour and track conditions are faithfully reproduced, with a breathtaking level of detail.
This allows racers to anticipate and react more efficiently to track conditions, thanks to the information transmitted through the racing wheel. This improves users’ comprehension of their driving, helping them to beat records and win races.
Years of collaboration with Polyphony Digital have resulted in the creation of in-depth sensations in the steering column.
Combining brushless motors’ refined Force Feedback with this Depth Feedback technology creates a realistic 3D environment perception. As a complement to standard Force Feedback, this system improves the driving experience with a new range of effects, including tire adherence (grip or slippage) in understeering and oversteering, mass transfers, road textures and irregularities, suspension and other parameters specific to each vehicle and circuit.
The Motor-Cooling-Embedded system maintains linearity and dynamics with the powerful T-40VE motor.
Thanks to T-M.C.E. technology, the T-40VE motor manages heat transfer and dissipation more efficiently than ever before. The T-40VE incorporates this cooling system right in the very heart of the motor in a highly constrained and enclosed environment. This combination ensures constant precision in rendering T-GT II’s performance and effects throughout even the most extended racing sessions, allowing drivers to experience the full complexity of sensations.
T-GT II features a brand-new electronic design with AEC-Q-certified printed circuit boards from the real-world automotive industry to ensure maximum levels of durability and quality over time.
The goal behind this reworking of the internal components used in Thrustmaster’s T-GT II is to meet the needs of the world’s most competitive expert racers who use their racing simulation gear as real work tools — throughout highly long training sessions and incredibly intense competitions.
The Real-Time Force feedback (T-RTF) system reduces Force Feedback calculation times, allowing for instant responsiveness.
A built-in processor manages force Feedback effects in real-time. This means that these effects do not depend on the game itself to avoid any hiccups concerning responsiveness — and the best part is that this holds for all games, both on consoles and P.C. In this way, Thrustmaster’s proprietary T-RTF technology allows users to enjoy gameplay without any dead zones or latency.
The T-GT II racing wheel’s 40-watt motor stands out for its perfectly linear Force Feedback and incredible velocity (dynamic torque) — from long stall curves to super-responsive S curves.
This high-powered motor provides the velocity required to generate remarkably dynamic and powerful effects. Thanks to its velocity, the motor also transmits faster and more robust responses to racers in real-time, enhanced by Thrustmaster’s proprietary T-LIN technology.
This external power supply delivers constant power and massive peak power (400 watts) to instantly respond to ultra-fast requests from games — rendered by the T-LIN feature and the T-40VE motor during game phases such as power drifts or multiple chicanes.
The power supply’s toroidal shape optimizes efficiency versus heat at 86%, with a finless design.
T-F.O.C. algorithm with Hall Effect sensors: Thrustmaster’s patented technology identifies the racing wheel’s position with pinpoint accuracy and provides unrivalled precision.
Thanks to its precision and the use of an optimized F.O.C. algorithm, the motor responds dynamically and swiftly to requests for increased torque while reducing power drops.
The up-and-coming celebrations for Gran Turismos 25th Anniversary can now be fully experienced with the new T-GT II. It is a humbling feeling that both the Gran Turismo and Thrustmaster teams have produced this product that we, as passionate sim fans, can experience all the twists and bumps of our favourite tracks in the comforts of our own home.
