Rumor: Wii U specs leaked, six-core CPU and 710Mhz GPU

A new rumored leak of the Wii U's internal hardware specs is out and it's got some pretty outrageous stuff. Claims the system's GPU runs at 710Mhz (not unreasonable) and has 512MB GDDR5 memory. Then it says the CPU has six-cores each running at 920Mhz.

This is a rumor and should be taken with a gigantic grain of salt. (Nintendo, Wii U)

Hard to tell

LOL well ok den

Ok..less than a week till release & we still do not know the actual spec numbers for the Wii U yet? Does anyone find that the least concerning at all?

If Nintendo is so confident as they should be with the system than these numbers should have been revealed long ago. I do not know i just find it odd we have no idea the actual numbers.

No its not concerning because it will have games people want to play. You can talk power all you want but to me the name of the game is still entertainment and if it has a super gpu or a weak one if it entertains me it did it's job. But to each his own

It's not concerning when you take into account this is Nintendo we're talking about. They never release the full specs for their consoles or handhelds. We won't know the actual specs of the Wii U until after release, when someone opens the console to study the components.

They are just trying to hold back vital information from competitors as long as they can. No biggy.
Wolfbiker  +   646d ago
Apple does it too my friend.
Npugz7  +   646d ago
How is it that nobody knows the actual specs! This is very odd!

NDA?

Wow... where to even begin with this one?...
mrbojingles  +   646d ago
I know, it's a bit odd
TABSF  +   646d ago
Equally as credible as the info you've provided

If the WiiU has E6760 which you say it does then it is based of AMD Radeon HD 6670 (codename Turks) and will feature 480 Unified Shaders, ten times that of the Xbox 360.

Your sources claims

"PowerPC architecture. Three cores (fully coherent).
3MB aggregate L2 Cache size.
core 0: 512 KB, core 1: 2048 KB, core 2: 512 KB"

Just madness. Show me a Caching hierarchy this messed up. Never gonna happen.

The Caching is far more realistic in this example for a IBM CPU

Nintendo would have to go out of their way to make this system just better, same or slightly worse than current gen hardware.

You're obsessed... XD
ninjabake  +   646d ago
I doubt this rumor is true tho.
MegaLagann  +   646d ago
Well this is bullshit.
We'll know within a week.
Nevers0ft  +   646d ago
It doesn't really have the ring of truth to it, I suspect the documents on Scribd are fake... It's not that the specs are either good or bad, just a bit "all over the place".
Thepcz  +   646d ago
i'm surprised with all the wiiu's now in journalists hands that the thing hasn't been pulled apart and had a close inspection already.

Nintendo has probably issued all media/press a notice against attempting that.
JonnyBigBoss  +   646d ago
This would be great news.
nypifisel  +   646d ago
...There's not enough salt on the planet to swallow this rumour, the CPU claims especially seems outlandish.
AO1JMM  +   646d ago
We will all know soon enough though. Hopefully someone will do a break down of it and post it on youtube.
FinalomegaS  +   646d ago
not hopefully, it will happen.
mdkgod43  +   646d ago
WII U less powerfull then ps3 lol
chronoforce  +   646d ago
I just took one huge grain of salt.
chronoforce  +   646d ago
I hope the clocks speed are closer 2 than 1, still for a console Reggie says will probably fend off the next Sony and Microsoft box its clock speeds are probably going to be at least 2Ghz. I'm sure the Wii U has sufficient power.
esemce  +   646d ago
I'm glad the Wii U is out 12 days in the US before the UK, if the specs are really poor then I may just cancel my pre order and wait for more games and a price drop. I need someone to dear down the console soon. It better be at least twice as powerful as my PS3 but I know it will be nowhere near my PC.

going to see this one float around the net for a bit.
