Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ubisoft : Wii U CPU on par with PS360, GPU only 1.5x Powerful?

Crazy if true.

News | June 8, 2012 - The central processing unit (CPU) of the U Wii is as powerful as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but the graphics processing unit (GPU) is one and a half times as strong. That is what an employee of Ubisoft stated to Insidegamer.

Ubisoft provided this information from a gameplay demo of Assassin's Creed 3. The editor of Insidegamer noting however that the game is on Wii U currently less good looking than the other consoles, with less detail and less constant framerate.

This can still be solved; because the Wii U is a new console, developers are still getting used to develop for the device. According to Ubisoft Assassin's Creed for Wii U will, at the time of release, be of the same quality as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.

I don't have as much athority to claim something as a developer has, but this doesn't seem right compared with the Wii U's processor. It's a well-known fact that the Cell is a more powerful processor than the Xbox 360's Tri-core, so that's already a little iffy on the developer. Second, this is a much newer design than either, so I can't see why it can't be more efficient than the processor in both consoles. If anything, people have been saying that the processor in the Wii U is the one component that is supposedly a solid step up from the other consoles.

I don't know why people tell me to get a life. I'm a gamer, I have lots of lives!
An anonymous employee? Sounds legit.

Love and tolerate.

shit is obviously a troll article since we know PS3's CPU is stronger than the 360.

They also said Wii U supports only 1 Gamepad not the most trustworthy devs as of now

Looks like I will only be enjoying WiiU games 1.5x as much, as I grind my teeth over the missed opportunity for this number to be 100, 1,000, or even a million times bigger.

Signatures are for LOSERS.

If you disagree, copy + paste this into your signature.

powerpc core at 3.2 ghz *3, same in both 360 and wiiU
gpu runs at ~750 mhz, 1.5 times the power
on paper the statement is true for someone that doesn't understand technology, why do you think nintendo doesn't release specs


NOW A PUNISHER CAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for stealing what I was going to say!

Seriously, Ubisoft, shut up.

Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Dont care, just take my money and give me Super Mario already.
