GN Version 4.0
At this point in the game, I honestly don't care about the specs of the Wii U. I already know I'm excited about the system and its games, which means I'm not too interested in learning about the internal workings of the system.

That's just me, though. There are plenty of other people that want to know what really makes the Wii U tick. Once again, we have another round of specs for the Wii U that were supposedly leaked. Take these with a grain of salt.


“Espresso” CPU on the Wii U has three enhanced Broadway cores


“GPU7” AMD Radeon™-based High Definition GPU. Unique API = GX2, which supports Shader Model 4.0 (DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.3 equivalent functionality)


Mem1 = 32MB Mem2 = 1GB (that applications can use)


Internal 8 GB with support for SD Cards (SD Cards up to 2GB/ SDHC Cards up to 32GB) and External USB Connected Hard Drives


802.11 b/g/n Wifi
