FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES, CA - May 10, 2006 - Image Space Incorporated (ISI), a well-known name in racing simulation, announced today it has designed a game that will bring the ultimate Formula One racing experience to PC gamers. The customized racing simulation premiered at the BMW Sauber F1 Team Pit Lane Park event at the European Grand Prix in Nürburgring, Germany on May 7th, and will also be showcased at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles on May 10th.
Intel, the Official Corporate Partner of BMW Sauber F1 Team, worked with ISI to turn its stunningly realistic rFactor racing simulation into a game, and will demonstrate the game on systems sporting the recently announced Intel® Core 2 Duo processor at BMW Sauber F1 Team Pit Lane Park events throughout the F1 racing season. ISI's pedigree as a leader in racing simulation includes the popular F1, F1 Challenge and NASCAR Thunder game franchises.
"The combination of Image Space's long track record in racing simulation expertise and the processing power of our Intel® Core 2 Duo processor will give users the ultimate racing experience on their PC," said Ann Lewnes, Vice President and Director, Partner Marketing Group at Intel. "rFactor is a great example of our shared vision with the BMW Sauber F1 Team to bring F1 fans even closer to the sport and the team."
rFactor harnesses the power of Intel® Core 2 Duo processor, Intel's latest dual-core processor technology due out in the middle of the year. These ground-breaking processors will be built on Intel's advanced 65 nanometer design and manufacturing process technology that shrinks a processor's circuitry and transistors. This combination will deliver higher-performing yet more energy-efficient processors that will spur more capable, stylish, silent and smaller mobile and desktop PCs while saving on electricity usage.
Bringing premium racing simulation to the PC and online community, the rFactor franchise was launched in the third quarter of 2005. It has won a number of awards including Editors Choice from PC Gamer magazine.
