Thank you. I know the R700 was a rumor. But it's a pretty good one. It seems perfectly in line with how nintendo thinks. the R700 chips would be extremely cheap to make. Like you said with a R700 under the hood, it's almost impossible to even get close to achieving slower results based on the fact that the R700's are so much newer then the old stuff in the XBox and PS3, not to mention faster. The only thing I could see that would "Support" this "rumor" is the CPU. Not much is really known and the PS3/Xbox are not really "slow" by today's standards.venomblade said:
The WIi U GPU is based off of the R700s, and I've read that it was the equivalent of the HD 4870. How can the Wii U be slower than the 360/ps3 with their ancient GPUs.

Well Nintendo never really aimed at the High-end gaming market as of the last decade atleast.
But who cares? It worked for them.
90% of families, and kids still use nintendo products.
It offers something for them which Sony and microsoft does not.
I mean clearly a 10 year old kid doesn't wanna troll his mom in BF3 in the living room.
But rather in mario party and such games.
That and being released nearly an entire year before the competition might do it! Nintendo knows what there doing and as stated this rumour is completely fanboy fuelled, by some snotty nosed PS3/Xbox fanboy!Guest said:
The Wii U will outsell both the 720 & Orbis because of the recent rumors about the always on online connection, not being able to play used games, no backwards compatibility, etc.
