• I’d rather guess the true figure is 852 Mhz in the line above.

    A big fail from Nintendo. Raw horse power does not mean much. Of course the difference to the Wii is that Nintendo has now the most expensive console. And no motion controller. That means much smaller install base, “bad” ports from PS3 and XBox 360, probably no ports possible from 720 and PS4.

      You could be right, though with the CPU/GPU being so close together that could be the GPU clock speed perhaps.

      Just wish we could get raw numbers to end all the speculation.

    IBM includes the year and week of manufacturing on their processors with that production code as typically the first part of the printed number. So, the Wii’s Broadway number 06321226V in the quoted article includes the date: the 32nd week of 06. You can see a similar number on the ATI chip, as well as the ’06 Nintendo copyright : http://techon.nikkeibp.co.jp/english/NEWS_EN/20061120/124053/mb3-2.jpg

    Here’s another Wii Broadway processor with a different number (06332296V): http://ptgmedia.pearsoncmg.com/images/art_fogie_insidewii/elementLinks/wiifig20.jpg

    So, the 1226 in 1226PL734 most likely refers to the production date of the 26th week of ’12.

    Here’s an explanation and some examples of how IBM has done this for decades: http://www.cpu-world.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12736

      Also, keep in mind this is an integrated CPU-GPU chip with AMD and IBM components, which likely account for the two numbers.

      Wow, impressive. Didn’t know that. So that pretty much destroys the 1.22Ghz idea then. Thanks for posting!
