rFactor 2- Server Specs Revelased

Recently the general specs for rFactor 2 were released, now ISI have released the general specs for hosting a server for the game. These are only a general Guideline and can vary on mods, tracks and players in the server upon release.

Bandwidth:
96 Kbits/sec per user for server populations less than 10
256 Kbits/sec per user for server populations between 10 and 20
768 Kbits/sec per user for server populations between 20 and 30

While this is track and vehicle dependent a user can expect something close to these approximations on:

RAM use:
Approximately 200 MB per server instance for server populations less than 10
Approximately 300 MB per server instance for server populations between 10 and 20
Approximately 400 MB per server instance for server populations between 20 and 30

CPU Usage:
This is also dependent on the server population and number of AI drivers but we would account for at least 250 MHz per server instance and on modern CPU, for example if you have a 2.5 GHz dual core you can run 20 servers (10 per core, 10 * 250 Mhz = 2.5 GHz) on that CPU if you have other requirements mentioned above meet. Floating point unit required.

rFactor 2 includes many improvements such as Graphics engine and Physics. Along with new tracks and vehicles. No release date has been set yet.
