Take this with a huge grain of salt, like the biggest you’ve ever seen. There are rumors of more detailed Wii U hardware specs, specifically clock speeds on the CPU and GPU. You might find some of these specs hard to believe.
It seems to indicate that the Wii U has a 710Mhz GPU and 512MB GDDR5 RAM used with the GPU.
I’m also confused as the leak supposedly lists 64GB flash memory has an option, but it’s in Japanese so I don’t fully understand what it’s referring to.
It says the Wii U has six CPU cores running at 920Mhz each, which I believe it the one thing that debunks this rumor. I know the Wii U’s CPU is clocked “closer to the Wii” but I’m guessing it will be Triple-Core and around 1.8Ghz, not this low.
Believe it or not, we’re likely to get a load of Wii U hardware leaks in the coming weeks. At least this one is sort of comical and entertaining in how outrageous these specs would be if true.
Some of these specs would be pretty expensive and unlike Nintendo. Then again, they are selling each Wii U at a loss.
Also the CPU has been said to be 45nm by IBM and that doesn’t match up well with this rumor. To be fair, IBM did say the CPU was Power 7 for nearly a year before retracting all statements and saying it may not be Power 7 at all.
