Nintendo have been keeping a lot of card to their chests with the new Wii U, not announcing a release date or in-fact any specs for the console, but now we have a set that have been leaked on the gaming website, VGleaks sent in by anonymous source.
The specs don’t look so good to be honest, with only 8GBs of internal storage, which can be upgraded with a SDHC card or SD card with up to 32GBs. The source also claims there will by 1GBs of RAM, and “Espresso” CPU, three Broadway cores and an AMD Radon HD GPU.
Alongside the SD cards you can also connect a USB drive/ Hard Drive to one of its four USB 2.0 ports, there will also be WiFi 802.11 b/g/n standard, but there’s currently no word on Ethernet connectivity, the Wii U will apparently also support 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 180i resolutions, which will be provided by one of the several video connections that include, HDMI, Wii D terminal, Component, RGB, s-video and stereo AV alongside Wii AV.
There’s 1GB of RAM on board that applications can use. And, as well as provide an SD card slot, the console will connect to an external hard drivethrough USB. There will be four USB 2.0 ports in total.
The video output supports 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i resolutions and it will offer a range of connections through several different Nintendo cables; HDMI, Wii D-terminal, Wii component video, Wii RGB, Wii s-video stereo AV and Wii AV.
We don’t know how much of this is actually true, but we should find out at Nintendo’s live stream tomorrow which is happening on September 13th at 3PM GMT, check out the Nintendo Direct website for more information.
