wiiu cpu 3x core custom powerpc 750 family with extended instructions 4x data compression and a 2 way 32 bit simds gamecentric custom version of ibm's greatest ever core FACT
its the highest clocked 4 stage pipline cpu in existence ,it has 3mb of custom high bandwidth level 2 catch made from ibm edram CUTTING EDGE CATCH TECH
the whole unit is both copperwire tech and silicon on insulator @ 45nm it also supports IBM MCP MULTI CORE PROCESSING and turbo core modes for accelorated single core performance its risc vs jaguars cisc its 4 stages vs jaguars 16 stages and its capable of both float and general core dats compression upto 4to1 it also supports fifo graphics data burst pipes direct to gpu from all 3 cores again supporting 4to1 data compression for HUGE DATA THRU PUT AND PERFORMANCE
it has direct access to the gpus 32mb edram also its catch its gpu edram and the main ddr3 are all low latency and expresso accesses data at sub 5ns latency vs ps4s cpu ram access if LOL 200 NS....
helping this cpu is a ARM cpu core a side kick cpu for function processing and back ground OS the stuff that will waste the main cpus performance and theres also a HD sound processor 5 cores in total
gpu is more under wraps but is based on dx10.1 AMD gpu with heavy customizations ahd a huge amount of edram and sram
the whole thing is low latency and high bandwidth with customized pre fetches and optermized memory
xbox 360 has 11mb in total cpu and gpu
wiiu has 38mb of this on processor catch speed memory and its all in chip embeddd into logic not running over buses from a seperate die like dumb 360 do
i hope iv helped
wiius in game ram performance in size is 4 x ps3 more than enough with the edram doing the brute work
The cpu is a power pc 750 series. Just like game cube, and just like wii. That is, if you think an i3 is just the same as an i7 because they are both icores.
Gekko was a 750 cxe. Broadway was a 750 cle. Espresso is based off of a 750Gx or Fx or later. Someone may want to look those up to see how they compare to broadway.
@orion, the small unknown chip is a multicore arm secure processor, likely serving a similar but gteater role as the arm secure processor on the wii's gpu die, starlet.
total bull its based of gekko its the same core EVOLVING each generation they didnt change that powerpc cl is the broadway not the other way around LOL
