New Wii U Dev Kits Coming Soon

Sega is saying that Nintendo will ship out new development kits in the next few weeks that will increase performance and cover the online infrastructure. (Dev, Next-Gen, Nintendo, Sega, Wii U)

From underclocked kits which we've seen running Killer Freaks, Ghost Recon Online, the Zelda Demo and the Garden Demo to what may be totally new hardware.....yes please.

Also, the guy with the motion tracker is screwed.

I cant wait to see what they do with inproved dev kits and to see some actual gameplay (from the new dev kits).

when i see any alien stuff it reminds me of bill paxtons character screaming "were all gonna die man" lol.

Nintendo will ship the ultimate beast i reckon 900mhz gpu and a 6 core power7 cpu with 3.5 ghz per core lets wait and see

As nice as that sounds on paper, that would likely generate far too much heat for that case and cooling system to dissipate.

The GPU clocks will definitely be lower than that. I'm hoping that they utilize the new Southern Islands GPU that AMD spoke about yesterday. Something from the midrange class would still be incredibly powerful and have a low enough TDP to work in a console case form factor.

The power7 CPU will likely be 4 cores. 6 is probably overkill for video games and the wattage on a 6 core Power7 at 3.5 would be too much. Drop the clocks a bit and go 4 core and you've got something.

it will be 6 cores i think plus its a micro proccessor power cpu so it wont get that hot m8
TheViper  +   1478d ago
OK, I have a suggestion. Why don't you take the fan and heatsink off the microprocessor in your computer, run a CPU intensive application and see how hot it gets. And I bet it's not even 6 cores.

@ matey

All cpu's are micro processors!
All that is used in computers that is.

And I can assure 99.9% of them will die and overheat quickly withouth proper ventilation and or cooling.

The Cell in ps3 is a microprocessor. it has 8 active cores running at 3.2 GHz... remove the fan and it to will melt.

a load of work on millions!!! of transistors shifting
3 200 000 000 times per second on each of the 8 cores... on a die that is smaller than a SD card, maybe even your thumb nail... I tell you it will melt eventually... or really fast like if you start up a game.

yea he doesnt know cpus, a pentium 4 can cook food if you take off the heat sink.

im sure nintendo will have a nice cooling system cant wait till next year.

hahaha i love your comment man but thats way out there

id say 4 core 2.8-3.3 ghz

700-800 mhz gpu maybe 2 of em

but im already excited with what we have
TheViper  +   1478d ago
"maybe 2 of em".

As in 2 GPU's? Not a chance. While AMD has done an admirable job getting their crossfire scaling up, it's not 100% which is not a good use of components in a consumer product (it's fine for consumers to do it aftermarket if they want).

And that's to say nothing of the power requirements and heat dissipation system required for 2 GPU's.

This is probably the most solid and reliable news to come from a good source in many days! Seeing as to Sega does have actual real hardware development hardware and can paint a real picture of what Nintendo's future plans may look like for us gamers...

will we finally see a Mario and sonic Adventure? The problem of sonic being to fast for Mario to keep up can be solved by using the Wii U pad, and adding in some obstacles where he needs mario to help out. The Co-op would be amazing.
