Nintendo are playing their Wii U specs incredibly close to their chest, which is starting to make many of us a little concerned about whether they're still unable to find a balance between power and crucial affordability. However, Wii U Daily claims to have heard from a developer engaged in porting a PS3 title to Nintendo's console - and who was willing to out the specifications. These specs place it as being slightly more powerful than an Xbox 360.
- Quad Core, 3 GHz PowerPC-based 45nm CPU
- 768 MB of DRAM “embedded” with the CPU, and shared between CPU and GPU
- Unknown, 40nm ATI-based GPU
I shouldn't have to tell you that this is a big fat rumour that could well turn out to be erroneous... not least because many developers claim that Ninty still hasn't finalised the hardware architecture. The data is apparently based on a March build so it will probably be difficult to prove/debunk either way.
What do you want from the Wii U? Power? Or an attractive price? If these specs are accurate, we'd probably like just a tad more RAM...
