Wii U software update analysis: How much faster is it?

The update for Nintendo's Wii U cuts console load times by an average of 31 percent, according to tests Polygon ran before and after the patch was downloaded.

Nintendo recently promised in a Nintendo Direct video presentation that the latest update would improve the system's sluggish performance, which has been an issue for Wii U owners since the system launched last November. A system update released in December decreased load times for some programs by as much as five seconds. Today's patch decreased the load times for certain menus and games even further.
