Hands down one of the best inside articles about the WiiU and its potential to date from a developer...

All of the questions that the interviewer asked were things that I really wanted to know about! Something that piqued my interest was this quote,
"When testing our first code on Wii U we were amazed how much we could throw at it without any slowdowns, at that time we even had zero optimizations."
Once again a developer mentioning how they were able to run things with zero optimization.
Here's also something that has never been mentioned before about WiiU.
"The CPU and GPU are a good match. As said before, today’s hardware has bottlenecks with memory throughput when you don’t care about your coding style and data layout. This is true for any hardware and can’t be only cured by throwing more megahertz and cores on it. Fortunately Nintendo made very wise choices for cache layout, ram latency and ram size to work against these pitfalls. Also Nintendo took care that other components like the Wii U GamePad screen streaming, or the built-in camera don’t put a burden on the CPU or GPU."

:So my question is, How does the Gamepad or camera not effect the overall performance of the CPU and GPU? What is Nintendo not revealing about this system that enables it to perform in such a way? Because most people here and on many other sites have viewed the gamepad as a hindrance and being one of the reasons why games aren't native 1080p! But this developer is coming out and debunking all of that by saying it has no burden on the WiiU's CPU or GPU at all... As Cell once said to Gohan, Incredible :-) lol

This article answers many questions that this web site has thrown towards the Wii U It should be put up with a different title so fanboys and haters know that the Wii U is NEXTgen and people can buy it withour fear that they should hold out for what MAY be offered by sony and MS! do not waste 2 years waiting as you will be missing out on a great games console and some fantastic games!

This posting won't see half of the responses as a negative WiiU article though, because it paints the WiiU in a very positive light and many just don't want to believe that exists!

Funny how that works. Once again, all of the negativity is no where to be seen.

Great interview! Really sheds some light on all the rumors and speculation that surrounded the Wii U. It's going to ultimately be up to the developer to maximize the Wii U's true potential and it seems that Nintendo actually put forth the effort in ensuring that the Wii U's hardware isn't plagued by RAM deficiency. Hopefully more developers sit-down and take the time to learn the hardware...
