Wii U Hardware Specifications Leaked?

 |  |  |  |  December 6, 2011


We still have quite a wait for Nintendo’s next-gen Wii U console, which isn’t expected to be officially launched until near the end of 2012. To help get us through and ease our wait, some possible specs for the new Wii U have surfaced.

Take this with a grain of salt, but according to a developer “in the know,” the Wii U is equipped with a 45nm, PowerPC-based 3 GHz processor with four cores, similar to the one found in the Xbox 360. There is rumored to be a 40nm AMD GPU that will share the onboard memory with the CPU. It looks like it may even have 768MB of DRAM to support that processor.

We still have no info on pricing, but if these spec rumors are on target, the Wii U may be expensive compared to the Wii’s current pricing – especially if you work in the cost of its fancy controller. Of course it will be much more powerful, but what really matters are the games anyhow.
