Rumor: The Latest Wii U Update Boosted the Wii U CPU & GPU Speeds Tremendously
A new rumor is floating around the web that the latest firmware update on the Wii U boosted the clock speeds of the CPU and the GPU of the system.
On the source site, there is no evidence or other sites they source, just this statement.
CPU: IBM PowerPC 7xx-based tri-core processor “Espresso” clocked at 1.24 GHz before the 3.0.0 update, 3.24 GHz after the 3.0.0 update. This is an evolution to the Broadway chip used in the Wii, is 64 bit and uses Power6 technote When IBM has said that Nintendo has licensed the Power7 tech from IBM, Nintendo is not using it for the Wii U, explaining its backwards compatibility.
GPU: AMD Radeon High Definition processor codenamed “Latte” with an eDRAM cache built onto the die clocked at 550 MHz before the 3.0.0 update, 800 MHz after the 3.0.0 update.
I don’t know about this one. If it boosted the clock speeds of the processor, wouldn’t have Nintendo said something to developers about it? And this website provides no tests or proof. Were just going to have to wait and see if someone more credible can confirm this.
