Wii U Has Last-Gen Radeon Inside
We are starting to going inside of Wii U, IBMs multi-core CPU it was providing, but it tantalize us by giving the name Watson. Now the details about the custom Radeon GPU are starting to surface, at its heart is a chip similar to the R770 found in the AMDs last-gen cards like 4890 and, remember the PS3 and Xbox 360 are still capable of pumping out impressive visuals while packing five year old silicon. The custom core also supports Direct X 10.1 and Eyefinity-like multi-display tech up to four SD video streams. If you are not convinced with Wii Us graphical prowess, Crytek has said its advanced CryEngine is pretty much up and running on Nintendos upcoming console.
