Expresso is CUSTOM please get that FACT firmly embedded into your brain
Its vastly VASTLY more efficent and effective per core and its out of order and branch isnt COUGH rudamentry like jaguar corez FACT
Expresso has true risc true out of order true branch prediction
Expresso is cisc and only low end out of order and branch very rudamentry to help make it better than ATOM from intel FACT
Expresso has ibm SMP AND EDRAM MAKING IT A BROADWAY MINI MII POWER7 HYBRED
Its a 4 stafe pipeline vs 16 stage for jaguar and 40 stsge for x360 cpu
Itd 4x faster in pipeline stage than jaguar and 10x faster in pipeline than x360 cpu
The expresso can do in a clock what jaguar takes many clocks to do FACT
Expresso has the same custom data compression as gekko and broadway max 4to1 for both genetsl code and floating point
Jaguar obviously does not.
Powerpc cl a slightly less of a core than broadway at 1ghz utterly destroys atom @1.6ghz utterly desimated it and at the time was hailed the fastest 32bit core on the planet and faster than a g5 per clock easily
Now at 1.6ghz bibcat was slightly better than ATOM and jaguar bobcsts replacment was SLIGHTLY faster again SLIGHTLY
Its atom then bobcat then jaguar but at much much lower clocks powerpc cl UTTERLY DESTOYS THEM
Expresso is far more forward thinking than ppc cl and is a smaller die and has high bandwidth edram as catch and a direct link to gpu edram
Commonsense expresso ABUSES JAGUAR WITH EASE
Under full compresdion ratio the catch is 12 mb and the bandwidth effectivness is massive
Expresso has around 12 x the bandwidth of broadway
Thrn add in the ultrs low latency of ibm mcm and optermized ddr3 and the gpu edram its clear wiiu had fantastuc cpu performance
Ps4 has gdneric jaguar cores and slow as hell gddr5
In all benchmarks gddr5 mrmory halfs cpu performance vs ddr3 FACT
You seem to be trying to state that the Wii U is more powerful than a PS4 and that the GDDR5 used in a PS4 is not as efficient as DDR3 used in a Wii U..?
When it comes to a GAMES console and GAMING in general, please understand that GDDR5 is ultra fast and blows DDR3 performance out of the water....FACT!!
If you were talking about a genral PC performing several different tasks and not just gaming, then DDR3 can perform more efficient reads between the CPU and MEMORY but NOT in a gaming environment.
Just wanted to clear that up for anyone who might have been bamboozled by your technical wording.
On a side note, the Wii U does not have to be more powerful than another console, it is adequate for HD rendering and since Nintendo have an awesome game cataloge and IPs they don't have to try and compete on the hardware front, just let Sony and Microsoft fight that out between themselves, at the end of the day I like and buy Nintendo consoles for their amazing games, not because they have better hardware than another company.
