An anonymous Nintendo developer has allegidly leaked Wii specs. Follow the link for all the techno-mumbo-jumbo that I just don’t seem to care about. I don’t even know what powers my DS, but I could care less. Maybe I’ve completely bought into Nintendo’s marketing message…
Regardless, key points of interest are (via Joystiq):
- Internal non-removable 512MB flash memory used to storage game save data and downloadable content thus eliminating the need for a memory card. Optical Disc Drive (ODD) supports single and dual layer Wii disks, discs eject with software or button and the maximum read speed is the equivalent of DVDx6.
- Nintendo Wii’s ‘Broadway’ CPU operates at 729MHZ with a maximum bandwidth of 1.9gbyte/sec.
- The GPU of the Wii is identical to the GC’s but it is on average 1.5X faster.
