As the new wave of consoles draws ever closer, the wave of information regarding new hardware and software becomes ever more plentiful.
VG Leaks seems to have uncovered the final, official specs for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console. Leaked by an anonymous source, these specs can apparently only be viewed at Nintendo’s developer’s site at www.warioworld.com. Of course, that site is only accessible to devs themselves, so while this (like any rumor) should be taken with a grain of salt, this is the most tangible evidence we have thus far.
Three enhanced Broadway cores (dubbed “Espresso”)
“GPU7” AMD Radeon HD GPU; unique API: GX2 with Shader Model 4.0 (DirectX 10.1/OpenGL 3.3) functionality
1: 32MB; 2: 1GB for apps
Internal 8GB of storage with SD card and external USB support (4 ports)
802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i
HDMI, Wii D-Terminal, Component cables, RGB, S-Video Stereo AV and standard Wii AV
It may be worth noting that several of the comments on the story refute the credibility of these specs, so only time will tell of more “anonymous sources” leak different information.
Do you find these specs disappointing, or exciting? Do the graphics matter when you have a touchscreen for a controller? Tell us in the comments, or discuss the console in our forums!
