IBM Embedded Dynamic Random Access Memory in Wii-U

IBM, who is providing the E-DRAM for the Wii-U, is making it so that triple the amont of memory can be stored on one small chip. This will lead to to extreme gamplay according to IBM. (Wii U)

It's not so much the Ram that is the worry in the Wii U more so the CPU which seems to be it's bottleneck according to rumour.
PopRocks359  +   845d ago
Really. At least half of the doubtful comments I've read all demanded that the Wii U has more RAM. Well... here you go. More RAM.

@Rage_S90
This is all people needs to know about your comment: bla bla bla WiiU bla bla bla ACCORDING TO RUMOUR.

You know nothing...
CaptainN  +   847d ago
That's true but so many people are worried about all of Wii-U's specs....so its important they know at least some factual information like the link above.

You could build a WiiU from scratch right in front of their eyes, and most of these trolls would find a problem with it.

What do they mean by extreme gameplay?
Ck1x  +   845d ago
I have to say there are some true idiots here at n4g! You are asking a legitimate question and you got disagrees... For what reason? Its just an obvious question of what do they mean by extreme gameplay? I wish all the short sighted fanboys would just ango kill themselves literally...
xtreampro  +   845d ago
That's n4g for.
ChickeyCantor  +   844d ago
He just wanted to sound cool.
Clearly he just meant that with this chip data can be processed fast and efficiently allowing for better performance. Thus allowing for more stuff to be done on screen and in the background.

Of course if the CPU matches with it. (And I dont see why Nintendo would pay for a chip they can't fully utilize). So that's certainly a yes.

The CPU is defiantly not the bottleneck. It has a Power7 which has 4 cores and 4 threads PER CORE. Thats 16 things running at the same time! Its faster than the i7 cpu's and those are used to test high end cards because they don't bottleneck. So a even faster CPU will definatly not bottleneck the GPU.

So we need a good: CPU, GPU and enough RAM. Until now, most of it is speculation.

Given N4G's common perception of the Wii U's power, reviving this kind of information seems pretty important to me.
Machioto  +   845d ago
@yewles I love your videos,though they're a bit short.

I posted it because everyone keeps talking about how everything in Wii-U is last gen tech the last few weeks........ people need to see proof that it is not. This is official from IBM and can not be disputed. Its trolls like you that force someone like me to pull out facts and have to remind the masses not to believe random rumours from supposed developers with no factual basis.
legend911  +   845d ago
Exactly! The Wii-U is very powerful and I sure hope there's a nice hardcore exclusive line-up.

"This will lead to to extreme gamplay according to IBM"

huh?
r21  +   845d ago
so is that high spec or what?
Ck1x  +   845d ago
An opinion is one thing but that doesn't make it factual at all! Truth be told at e3 when Wiiu games dwarf anything seen on either the ps3 or 360 let the haters just hate on, as this system will probably go on to break records for Nintendo as well...
Jihaad_cpt  +   844d ago
its gonna have to be a little on the pricey side to dwarf anything and that might just make things difficult.
jacen100  +   844d ago
the machine has no blu-ray, no HDD this will help keep costs down
Jihaad_cpt  +   844d ago
Sorry I was meaning relative to the original Wii. HDDs are not expensive and neither are blu-ray drives these days.
ChickeyCantor  +   844d ago
It has a custom disc reader, discs that can hold data up to 25gb ( and who knows maybe 50, we havn't heard much from it since last year).

I'm glad they kept the HDD out. Buying one 1T costs so little. And Im fine with that.
