All i know is the wii u's hardware is considerably more powerful than what i have, and is capable of delivering quality gaming at great resolution and framerate.
The system is clearly not trying to be a ps4 or xbox one, and while i understand the accusations of it being underpowered, i respect its individuality and inventiveness :)

The Wii u is the ultimate gaming system


Great system but, at least so far, definitely not the ultimate gaming system

In regards to memory speeds both the GameCube and Wii used dual channel access doubling the memory speeds which is mentioned in this article as a rumor. I'm certain if Nintendo used this setup on there older systems then they would have again or increased it to the quad channel layout which could also be the case.

The CPU in the Wii U is definitely its weak point however at least some of the load is taken off by the forth background ARM CPU and the sound chip leaving the 3 Espresso cores strictly for gaming purposes.

Nintendo hardware is always sold at a profit and they almost always seem to be able to take less powerfull components and somehow get higher than percieved specs through clever engineering and layout making for overall balanced systems.

The pinnacle of engineering is being able to do more with less which is something Nintendo strives for (also profit). Just my 2 cents

I may be terribly wrong, but from what i read it seems that you have no clue as to what the hell you're talking about lol. Then again your grammar was so bad maybe i just didn't get what you were saying.
