Wii U’s processor with limited performance

Nowadays the technology used on consoles (home or portable) are considered a small complement of computers. Recently, the hacker named ‘Marcan’, known for having broken PS3’s security system, announced on his Twitter account  the specifications of the new Nintendo machine.

Wii U’s performance have been debated by all computers experts and according to Marcan, Wii U’s processor runs at half the speed of PS3 and XBox 360.

Marcan claims that its processor runs at 1,243125 GHz comapring with the 3 GHz used by PS3 and XBox 360. He also adds to his statement that the core system is PowerPC 750, the same type Wii has implemented. As the GPU performance goes, here it is the exact value: 549,999755 MHz.

Briefly, the differences between both Nintendo consoles are mainly in the core system. Nintendo Wii U uses three cores instead of just one, regarding Nintendo Wii. The CPU and GPU performance were also improved.

That being said, the methods used by Marcan are still unknown. After his statements, he debated with a few Twitter followers and said that “Wii U’s performance isn’t a big deal and don’t compare it to XBox 360’s. They’re not even close.”
