New rumors!

We have been hearing about the Nintendo Wii U gaming console for a while now. The console is expected to come to market sometime next year, likely in the latter part of the year. Today some new specifications are floating around that are coming from an unnamed developer that claims to be familiar with the console.

The rumors claim that the Wii U will have a quad-core 3GHz CPU from IBM under the hoof and that CPU will be a 45nm PowerPC chip. The processor is said to be similar to the 3.2GHz three-core processor that the Xbox 360 uses. The console is also confusingly said to have 768MB of embedded DRAM, which PCMag says would be prohibitively expensive.

The more likely thing is that the machine will have a more standard 32MB of eDRAM and around 768MB to 1GB of normal DRAM. The new console is said to support 1080p resolution. The console also has the controller with its own touchscreen.
