no...it wasn't, the first gtx 260 = hd 4870 512mb, gtx 260 v.2 = hd 4870 1gb

At least 5870s are still somewhat respectable these days.
And if you're 33 and enjoying the Wii... well, maybe you can do that. I can't though. I didn't like any of its games. They were all ruined by the stupid motion controls. From the sound of it, WiiU won't be much different. The lowest tech of the 3, still using motion controls and other gimmicks... bleh, I'm probably skipping on consoles altogether next gen.

Have you played Ocarina of Time on the 3DS? The new aiming mechanic (aim by moving the system around) is the most precise method of aiming I've ever used on a console. I'm betting the Wii-U controller will be doing that a lot.
Also, having a touch screen on the controller means that developers will be able to use as many buttons as they want. You could probably play Mechwarrior 2 on that thing.
Also also. If someone were smart enough to actually do it they could use the Wii-U controller the same way TrackIR works in Flight Simulator X (it lets you look around and push buttons on a virtual cockpit), which would be amazing.

I know huh, shoot. That tracking in Ocarina of Time 3ds is pretty cool. You can look around in all directions. But looks like the Vita has that also.

Only since DS and Wii. Before that Nintendo was a leader in the graphics department.

There are alot of possibilities but unfortunately, those will be ignored by the Elitist here on OCN.

Ya know, wiimote+nunchuck is actually a pretty good aiming mechanic as well...

And no, it is NOT "motion-waggle crap". Aiming uses the IR camera on the front of the remote (sometimes in conjunction with the gyroscope for better accuracy), which has NOTHING to with the accelerometers used for motion detection.

Which is why I'm constantly surprised at the hatred towards Nintendo. I would think the PC gaming community would be supportive of systems that aren't just bastardizations of PCs in console form-factors - ya know, the whole "enemy of my enemy is my friend" idea. And yet PC gamers usually PREFER those bastardized PC-"consoles"! kookoo.gif

hopefully 4890 but more likely a 4770 style gpu
post #87 of 144
What a load of rubbish, no matter what card they go with it's still a complete monster of a graphics card.

Does that look like it's running on a low end card? rolleyes.gif

What a horrible article. People who play consoles should not right about what they think PC hardware is. If the GPU it gets is based on RV770, then its getting 800 shaders which is a lot of power. But this tool couldn't even get the code name right by checking wikipedia.

All of you should be ashamed of yourselves for not rebuking this moron.

GOD FREAKING DAMN!

I'm sick of people posting that!

Nintendo said that was footage of what it MIGHT LOOK LIKE AND IT WAS RUNNING ON A HIGH END PC!

It's a DEMONSTRATION!

NOT ACTUAL GAME FOOTAGE!

Who, me? wink.gif

I'm guessing you didn't actually read the article. When did I get the code name wrong?

Nintendo has said they're using an R700 GPU. They didn't say they were using an RV770 or RV770XT. Just R700, which can have between 40 and 800 shaders. And all indications are that Nintendo is going for 80 shaders or less.

Moronic? Think what you will. But I think it may be moronic to think that Nintendo will use a top-end R700 part when all other signs indicate that they'll probably use a low-end one. Which is what the article is about. If you bothered to read it.
