Wii U will have a quad core 3GHz CPU and 768 MB of RAM, if claims from a Wii U Daily source are to be believed.
The site claims an unnamed Japanese developer, who is currently working on porting a PlayStation 3 game to Wii U, tipped off the information. According to the source, the Wii U will boast:
- A Quad Core, 3 GHz PowerPC-based 45nm CPU, very similar to the Xbox 360 chip.
- 768 MB of DRAM “embedded” with the CPU, and shared between CPU and GPU.
- Unknown, 40nm ATI-based GPU.
The source also mentioned Nintendo is testing two versions of the console: one with 768 MB of RAM, the other with 1 GB.
These specs were shown off in March this year, said the tipster, so it’s unknown how much has changed since then.
