[VG247] Wii U: latest system update has increased CPU, GPU speed – rumour - Page 10

post #91 of 143
the WII-U will just pull a WII, and cater to the kiddie/family segment and the ps4/720 barely acknowledge that market Nintendo,s problems are "A" needs a price drop and "B" start pumping out games, people/ web sites need to seriously STOP saying the ps4 and 720 are threats, the 720 and ps4 are chaseing differnt demographics thumb.gif

The CPU in the 360 and WiiU are not the same chip, not even close. The 360's Tri-Core CPU is more comparable to a Pentium 4 in terms of integer performance, and floating point performance of around a lower clocked c2d. While needing to be at 3.2ghz to do so...

The WiiU's CPU is based off the PC750 core, but comparing what is in the wii to what the wiiu has it like comparing a Pentium 4 to a Sandy Bridge chip. After being refined and modified the chip the chip can no longer be compared clock for clock to what the 360 or original wii has.

If at the current low clock speed it matches the 360's CPU speed, while a disappointment for a newer console, Overclocked it should put WiiU above last gen consoles by a good amount.


As for Dev's who say that the WiiU is weak is that they don't want to spend time optimizing it as well as they did for both the 360 and ps3, mainly because WiiU is such a niche market right now. Not that the system can't do it. Dev's are fools if they say otherwise, More RAM and double the GPU power yet they are having problems working with a CPU thats little faster then the 360's? Called being lazy

This rumor is coming out quite close to the news about Wii U not getting Battlefield 4. Not saying they're related, or that this is even true for that matter, but an interesting coincidence nonetheless... thinking.gif

...1.24GHZ to 3.24GHz?

I need to get into the Wii U aftermarket cooler business.

I just feel I need to reiterate this:
Quote:
The rumour comes from a poster on TV Tropes who hasn’t cited any sort of source or provided any evidence, so please do treat this as rumour for now

Why are people in this thread blaming Nintendo for this rumour? And why is anyone taking it seriously?

Random forum poster claims something without evidence... Sounds legit...

Oh wait - so... nevermind, you didn't bother to read the thread. You know, the one that mentioned that there is no proper source, and if one was mentioned, it sure as hell wasn't nintendo.

Xbox 360S(current model) has similar cooling as Wii U and it consumes about 90-130 watts while Wii U about 30-60 watts(normal-peak). So Wii U cooling is sufficient and don't say it can't do it to 3ghz, we don't know what changes they implemented that could be around speeds it can handle. I think Wii U can easily achieve 1.48Ghz while the maximum I can think of is 2.48Ghz.

GPU boost from 550mhz to 800mhz is achievable while I would realistically expect to be boosted to 650-725mhz.

If this rumor that has no source and any validation comes out to be true then I can bet you will see more 1080p games, Wii U already has one and that is Rayman Legends and with the boost like this there will be some 1080p games with simple 3D graphics even thought Rayman Legends is 2D/3D.

Lets look this from a logical perspective... We don't know all the details involving Wii U's CPU and GPU nor what Nintendo's plans involving Wii U but it seems it will be somewhat similar to DS that after couple of months the OS was seriously streamlined thus more RAM available and a locked core was unlocked for developers.

You can't directly compare two CPUs with different architectures in terms of clock speeds and the heat generated or power requirements. The comparison is useless.

The only useful thing you can infer is that, if true, Nintendo intentionally under clocked their console at release by a massive margin. And that they massively improved performance in one fell swoop and didn't bother to tell anyone.

Personally I don't think Nintendo are that dumb. They released a patch that improved the OS, apparently it makes a few games smoother. That's it.

At the end of the day someone measured power consumption with a watt meter, it hasn't increased. Not even Nintendo CPUs run on magic.

Well, a random poster without evidence is also the source from the current clockspeeds. He was from a PS3 hacking team, but that does not make it much more relevant considering he didn't provide any hard evidence about it.

Now, what I question myself is, why does OCN have a need of 'Thread contains WiiU in the title? BASH NINTENDO!!!111!!1'
