Nintendo rep: Wii U is “19 times more powerful than PS3″

Wii U powerHere’s an odd statement from Nintendo, if it came from Nintendo at all. According to a Wii U preview article, a Nintendo rep told the site Total Revue that the Wii U is “19 times more powerful than the PlayStation 3″. We’re pretty sure the site is pulling this quote out of their a** for a few reasons.

Firstly, Nintendo never comments on the performance figures of the Wii U. It’s unlikely that a Nintendo rep at a show floor would know anything about its specs, let alone compare to current consoles. Secondly, while the Wii U is more powerful than the PS3 and Xbox 360, it most certainly isn’t 19 times more powerful than those consoles. The upcoming PS4 and Xbox 720 won’t be that powerful.

Developers have consistently said that Wii U is around 50% more powerful than current generation consoles. Nintendo has only confirmed one aspect of the Wii U Specs: that the console packs 2 GB of RAM, 1 GB to the OS and 1 GB to games. Which means it has twice the game memory of current generation console hardware. The specifics details about the CPU and GPU are yet to be unveiled, but we know that it’s a 3-core CPU and a modern AMD GPU design. And that’s about it.

          • TheWholeTruth

            19 times more powerful. Yeah, I figured it wasn’t right.

            Can’t wait to get my Wii U, to be placed next to my PS3.

      • Nko Sekirei

        wii u is at least wat i heard from developers have said its 50 times more powerful then ps3 and 360

        • Derp

          Source please? I would like to see…

          • Mass Effect fan

            Not have source cos is fanboy’s story

          • Grodus

            I’m pretty sure he meant 50 percent.

        • God

          If the wii u was to be 50 times better then it would not cost $350. Noob.

          • Nintenlord

            @ wiiu daily please ask this person to change his name or be forced to has i find it offensive

          • Nko Sekirei

            i heard it from several developers from their own words dude so stfu and they havent back down from their comments and my source is legit and hes a friend of mind who is a expert on tech and specs and also mr douchebag wii u specs is custom made that tells u that wii u is far more powerful then wat ps3 and 360 can push which and

          • Nko Sekirei

            i dont make stuff dude i go to different legit game sites and i read many articles from many third party developers that tested the wii u and said in their own words that wii u is 50 percent more powerful then ps3 and 360 this nintendo rep doesnt know squat he just guessing that why i listen wat the developers say cause the developers had their hands on the console for a while and they dont make stuff up.And why is it wii u is getitng far more support then ps3 and 360 cause wii u is ture next gen console packing more power then ps3 and 360 and wat reggie said was true it will be able to compete against ps4 and 720

          • Obi Wan Cumboneme

            Funny how comments from God are all low rated.

          • God

            Umm you find my name offensive, right . . . Anyways lets get back to discuss about the wii u and not about how you feel about my choice of name. Ok? Be a big boy and get over it.

          • WiiUnov18

            @god Oh but it would and if you are looking to hate on wii u …you have failed big time

          • Dantheman

            Nintendo unlike Sony cares about their buyers. The cost price for ps3 when it first came out was 599.99. The wii u is a next gen console so 350 for a next gen starting price is very good and for your info, you cannot compare a next gen to current gen

        • Dan

          50% not 50 times u idiot..

          • Nko Sekirei

            my mistake and it doesnt make me an idiot like u mr faggot and i didnt do anything wrong but it seems theres people with no respect to people who made a minor mistake on posting

          • WaterDjinn

            @Nko Sekirei: You said you’re not doing anything wrong when you were calling people names because they were correcting you about your 50x comment? Try respecting others if you want respect yourself.

        • Nugget

          the quote was 50% more powerful.

          • Nko Sekirei

            thank u for quoting me

        • TheBoldman67

          I think he meant 50 percent.

          • Nko Sekirei

            i was typing aliitle to fast to not pay attention on the percent part lol but really does my comments need to be thumb down from a minor typo will at least a few people dignity corrected me without calling me an idiot like dirty dan/patrick star

      • SteampunkJedi

        Yes, I think we all know that. And I agree with Nintenlord; I believe your name is offensive.

        • Adam Fox

          the ironic thing is, almost everything he says gets thumbs down and hidden due to low ratings…..

        • Master Awesomeness

          I also agree that it is a bad choice to call yourself “god”, even if you are someone who may be very religious you need to acknowledge that others could be offended. I may be non-religious and not offended, but even I acknowledge other beliefs. So, “god”, please re-name yourself on this site.

          • shadowfan2z

            He’s clearly not a religious person.

        • God

          Another one oh my GOD there are so many noobs going off topic I mean I understand people thumbs me down because I speak the truth and its just natural for noobs to be scared but anyways if you really feel offended I will change it . . . Next year.

          • Have a π , take it easy

            ^

          • God

            I have a wii u and its 19 times stronger but it runs smoothly and the gamepad is actually an idk because its it’s the right size for me but what about the little ones you know and so I hope Nintendo still sells a lot of consoles by parents buying them as a baby sitter for their 5 year olds.

          • brownfinger

            GOD ISNT REAL DEAL WITH IT IF U THINK GOD IS REAL THEN YOU PRAY FOR STUFF TO HAPPEN INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY MAKING IT HAPPEN. GET A LIFE.

          • SteampunkJedi

            @brownfinger: If he was staunchly religious then he would not label himself as God. And no offense, but you are making ignorant generalities. I don’t know where you generated them from. There are lazy people, religious or not.

      • Allah

        There is only one true god

        • Nintedward

          I SEE what you did there.

          • Allah

            Lol

      • srpg2ishere

        Duh. what kind of console is 19 times more powerful than another? The Wii U may not be NINETEEN times more powerful but it’s 50% more powerful. But in my case it’s 5 gajillion times more powerful!!!!!

    • Asiancake

      I wish it was over 9000 times better

      • Nintedward

        Spoiler it is . In every way other than graphically . even graphically its about 4-6+ times better ;) , thank me later !

        You don’t just measure if its 19x more powerfull than saying it has 2GB of RAM blardy blah . There is many other Important factors.

        The graphics will look AMAZING no doubt . Lets just hope sony make their console too powerfull and expensive and blow their own foot clean off.

        • Nintedward

          The reason I slag off sony , Is becuase they are far from the company they used to be . Now they are nothing more than a bunch of copy cats looking for attention . I don’t have to list how many times they have copied Nintendo , but its getting rather pathetic .

          I have a ps3 , but its the last Sony hardware I’ll ever buy .

          Wiiu + PC + 3DS = gtfo everybody else.

          • Joswag (3ds fc: 0216-1072-9703)

            Same here :) PC + 3ds+ wii u = fun

          • Ledreppe

            Me too! Wii U + PC + 3DS is gonna be a lot of fun in the next 6 years.

          • ridley vs. samus

            YES! nintendo stuff + PC w/ steam + absolutely nothing else for the WIN!

          • Yodin

            For me leave out PC don’t play games on it, i have a PS3 will be the last hardware for me as well, getting a Wii U, already have a 3DS plus will be fun. Cannot wait :)

          • Aidan

            agreed, I have the 360 and ps3, and I’m not buying the 8th gen consoles from either of them.
            Wii U+PC+3DS is definitely the best way to go for 8th gen, I’m coming home nintendo!

          • TheLazyMudkip

            Only reason I own a 360 is for halo and gears and that’s it

          • Adam Fox

            I have always been a Nintendo fan….I have a good bit of Nintendo systems. I have had a few PS3s b/c I would buy them, sell/trade them b/c I got bored with it, but never did that to my Wii…there may be times I went months w/o playing the Wii, but I never sold it…..the only way i’d ever sell my 3DS would be to get the XL or whatever upgrade they do next to it

          • Cugno the Swiss

            How can you guys say you won’t be getting the next playstation? Didn’t you find PS3 good? Tales of Graces was a Wii exclusive, and it was never localized, then it has been ported to PS3 and everybody has got it. Ni No Kuni was originally for the DS, and it was never localized, and when the PS3 version came out, the whole world has got it!

          • Jon

            @Nintenward

            You could “slag” on Sony all you want, but the PS3 was the best console of the 7th gen (imo).

            It also had the best exclusives.

            Next gen however… I won’t be thinking much of Sony and Microsoft always makes crappy consoles so… yeah.

          • Nintedward

            @jon . I personally think the wii had the best exclusives , just my opinion. The ps3 arguably has the best , yes . BUT , PSAS , LBPK , ps move , vita to ps3 wiiu rip off yadah yadah yadah .

            Sony have dropped the ball . They don’t know what they are doing anymore and are being pushed out of the market by everybody else including phones.

          • TheWholeTruth

            Nintendward.

            You do realize that Sony never really actually owned a Mobile division until last month? Before that, it was Ericson who had was there, they couldn’t make the company work before Sony bought them and they couldn’t even with their support.

            Now, Sony owns 100% of it’s mobile instead of 47%, finally released PS Mobile along with other awaited products and it’s quite good.

            I certainly would NOT throw away my PS3 since PS Plus is probably the best service there is AND most importantly, the PS3 can play Blu-Ray HD Movies and DVD movies while the Wii U cannot, and I’m not going to throw away my BD Movie Collection.

            As for PCs, well, you’d better get one quick, because Microsoft plans on fully implementing Xbox Live to PCs, forcing other providers like Steam to get out of Windows and forcing consumers to pay to play online. Haven’t they learned their lessons yet with Windows Live for PC, now they’re bringing it to Windows 8?… Anyway.

          • TheWholeTruth

            And people can “try” to slam the PS3, but it’s has it’s advantage and great games.

            Nintendo has the best games for kids, and that’s it.

            Beyond the age of 15 years old, Nintendo doesn’t have that many appealing games for mature gamers. Zombiu is the only exception.

            And when I think about it, I can certainly wait until there enough good games released on the Wii U before buying one, but with the fanboys over here, males me think twice about buying 1, a little.. I’ll wait and see.

          • Kyron

            @ The Whole Truth – How biased is your statement “Nintendo has the best games for kids, and that’s it”?

            A game can be as mature as you want it to be. More than half of those “mature” games that you crave are generally played by kids under 15 years old.

            I don’t know about you but I’ll pick Cave Story over titles like Max Payne, Battlefield, COD, Uncharted, Halo…etc. anyday

          • NightºƒCore

            @TheWholeTruth and @Nintenward Thats why mac is the way to go B}

          • Nintedward

            @ The whole truth , Sorry bro you aint no GAMER if you think Nintendo is just for kids . Just one of those idiots who thinks games have to be m RATED to be enjoyed . Kyron is right , KIDS under 15 play COD and all that shit . Most of the xbox 360 installed base is under 15 , don’t try and tell me otherwise . You would be suprised how many Adults play mario , zelda , metroid , pokemon etc etc .

          • NightºƒCore (now a huge fan of SAO! Like seen on TV!)

            @Nintedward true story. You can also look at how many adults watch My Little Pony (just trollin, lolz)

          • WaterDjinn

            @Nintedward: You bash a guy because he says nintendo is for kids when you say most of the 360 base is 15 or under lol oh the irony.

      • Naterman

        The wii u power level is over 9000!!!!!!! But I’m glad that, if gamers want top notch performance, they have to upgrade to wii u. Take that Sony/microsoft

    • theorangefish

      Pretty much impossible!
      Todays top of the line PCs are “ONLY” about 18x more powerful and are way bigger than a wii u. Nintendo doesn’t want their consoles to burn after 1 second of usage. That is a rumor from little fanboy biatches! Just like the “Graphics are not powerful” topic some time ago. We will have to wait until it is out to know the specs. By the way it should be easy to dump evreything on the external drives.

      ..wii u daily staff: Why do you put that into the news?

    bah humbug

  • Madmagican

    19 times more powerful? HELL NO, but that’s not NIntendo’s #1 priority in gaming; I’d like to think we all know this… crazy people/websites

    • Flup McFlacken

      Plus, imagine how much that would cost!

  • Kevin White

    I think he meant 19% (1.19 times) more powerful than PS3. Which I could believe.

    On the other hand, there are about THIRTY different metrics that could be used to compare “power” of game systems. And that’s without considering the SUBJECTIVE parts such as A) how much the Gamepad (for example) adds to (or detracts from) the overall impression of power, B) actual image quality (beyond frame rates, resolution, texture passes, texture storage, etc.), and C) how easy or difficult (or frustrating) it is to harness the power of the system (which includes the inherent architecture as well as the current programming tools).

    • Nintenlord

      Was thinking the same thing instead of just saying is graphicaly stronger it could mean the sum of his features

    • Shulololol

      who the fuck would say 19 %, seriously, just sounds dumb. and 19 times more powerful isnt believable. You buy Nintendo cause it’s fun and it has masterpiece games.

      • Nintenlord

        Lol you are realy bad in math are you? The wiiu is 50 % more powerfull than the ps360 which means 2 times 19% mean way less, 19 times= 190%
        This is just an exsample

        • Shulololol

          ctually 19 times means 1900 %

          • Nintenlord

            I got it late wen i finish, but atleast it i was closer :)

          • NightºƒCore

            @Shulololol well, depends what you multiply together with 19. 19 x 0 = 0! #Troll

        • Mathemathicspolice

          Actually, 100% would be twice as powerful.

          • Troll patrol. (lost my Identity Pic)

            no twice as pwoerful is 200 %, cause 100 % is the base from the weaker console

          • Troll patrol.

            Troll patrol (lost my identity pic) ???? GTFO!!!! clone .

            Cloning people is against the law , sir . You are under arrest !!

          • Kevin White

            You are correct. A 100% increase is 2x as powerful. To the other guy, if the Wii U is 50% more powerful than something, that makes it 1.5x as powerful. I have a Master’s degree in Finance plus an undergrad minor in statistics and use complex math every day for a living. Not that this is complex math — this is remedial 6th grade stuff at best.

            And I was kidding when I said he meant 19% more powerful (1.19). Obviously this whole hyperbolic argument is meaningless. You can compare things like GFLOPS, memory bandwidth, texture pipelines, etc. But even then it simply breaks down as a quantitative comparison, and that’s before you even start touching on any of the subjective pieces of the puzzle.

            We’re trying to compare the incomparable. The games will out.

      Nah . Its not a bad theory you have their , But we already know the wiiu has 2GB of RAM , thats 4 times as much . The graphics card could be 10 times as good as the ps3′s ,we don’t know yet .

      Its DEFINATELY A LOT better than 19% better than a ps3 , lol .

      PS3 = DX9 equivalent , Wiiu = DX11 equivalent . The wiiu will have Noticeably better graphics , framerates and resoloutions than the ps3 .

      More than enough to define a ”leap” .

      • Nintedward

        *there*

      • Cugno the Swiss

        I never understood what “twice as powerful” means, aside from RAM. I mean, 2GB of RAM is obviously twice as powerful as 1GB of RAM, but RAM isn’t everything, so how can you calculate how much more powerful a console is? And how can you say “This game’s graphics are twice as better as those game’s ones”, it’s like saying “Today the weather is good, twice as good as yesterday”, it doesn’t make sense to me. The custom graphics library the Wii U will have will be close to looking like a DirectX11 one, which means it can render tessellation. This is obviously next gen territory, and the Wii U will have very good graphics (as if I care, PS2 was enough for me), but how could anyone say “Yo tessellation, 2.486 times as powerful!”, I’ll be wondering this for the rest of my life.

        • The Samurai of Gaming

          Wow can you calculate how much more powerful a console is? The answer is simple: You can’t.

          If a system has a 2GHz CPU and 4GB of RAM, it literally has twice the computing power and double the memory of a system with a 1GHz CPU and 2GB of RAM, but you can’t really add those up and say it’s twice, four times or eight times as “powerful”.

          It’s just as you said, there are too many factors to take into account, and they can’t really be combined to form a proper factor. It’s usually fairly simple to tell which of several systems is more powerful, but anyone who puts a number factor on the whole package instead of individual specs doesn’t really understand how computers (or game systems, which are essentially the same) work and is likely making things up.

          • Jeremy

            something else is funny thought i stated before that the Wii U has 2 gigs of ram right is what everyone brags about but dont they only use 1 gig for games and the others pretty mucha waste makeing a fancy menue screen in my opinion. Off topic but i think it would be good but pricey but people would pay for is adding video graphics card and its own dedicated ram to the screened controllers to support more then 2 screened game pads and which would reduce stress on the system which would pro long its lifetime against normal ware and tear

        DX11? Cite your source because I call BS. All I’ve ever read is it can run DX10 equivalent.

        This site makes me embarrassed to be a Nintendo fan sometimes.

        • Nintedward

          You have obviously not been doing your research , have you meg ??

          Ubisoft leacked recently the graphics card , And its a low-mid DX11 equivalent card . Those DX ”10.1” leaks were Rumours made up by clever sony fanboys .

          ”All i’ve ever read is it can run DX10 equivalent” – which credible source have you read that from ??? let me guess , nowhere ??? exactly.

          Its DX11 equivalent . I’m allmost 100% certain , go and watch some Review tech USA . One titled ”Huge wiiu leaks” ……

        • Jeremy

          Your right it is said to be Dx10 not 11 from whats been posted on sites, least a few I came across. Wii U misses out a lot I believe without haveing Dx11′s tesselation which would enable increase in graphics without conflicting performance and dont forget Dx11′s Direct Compute feature which in turn gives better visual detail and the Compute Shader feature come on everyone can see how the shaders on the xbox 360 makes a bigger difference then the less console with shaders the ps3 for example gears of war 3 I know people may not like the game but it takes. Lets hope Wii U supports Dx11 and they change it but not might be able to on 6 year old tech they are selling as next gen.

          • MadPopGaming

            DirectX11 is a Microsoft property. Wii U will run OpenGL, not sure which but it will be DX11-equivalent.

            The only problem Wii U might have is its CPU… Let’s see how effective developers can be using the enhanced GP-GPU.

  • TwilitShaymin

    LIAR!

  • KevinxDxD

    Wow I feel proud for pre ordering a WiiU

  • Deadmansam

    It’s most likely it won’t be 19 times more powerful than the ps3 but it does have its own features like a touch screen, a great selection of games, eshop and much more. So I’m not really worried about these sort of rumours.

      That i can believe.

    • NightºƒCore

      It is lolz, and PS3/Xbox360 is 17x more powerful than Wii. That leaves the Wii U to be 3x more powerful than SP3/Xshmox180

  • MYCOXEN

    THATS VERY GOOD.

    Wow Nintendo really did do a good job this time because I see that it will only make sense to buy a wii u because the Xbox 720 and ps4 don’t got nothing on us niqa :D

  • AKA-Link77

    The Wii U™ is definatly more powerful than 7th gens and you’re fool to think otherwise but admittingly, its not 19 times more powerful. Unless the so called specs R really that good — then ofcourse its as powerfull as this guy says. Again. . . I highly doubt it though cuz Nin focuses on Game Play not power!
    And like always:
    “We’ll just have to wait and see. . .”

    • Nko Sekirei

      actually the third party developers had said in their own words after they tested the system out that wii u is 50 times more powerful then ps3 and 360

      • Henry Anderson

        Which 3rd party said that?

        • LyingTuna

          The third one.

            I thought it was the first, third party.

      • corbin74

        It’s fifty percent more powerful, not fifty times. Fifty times more? Hell yeah!!!

      • Nintenlord

        Is say 50% which means 2 times not even a pc is 50 times more powrfull

        • JumpMan

          i’m pretty sure nothing is 50 times more powerful other than something like a NASA SuperComputer xD

    • Kav

      Nintendo always focuses on power, except when making handhelds, and one time, only one time they didn’t focuses on power on a console, the Wii.

    Wouldn’t we all love it if it were 19 times more powerful then the currant and upcoming consoles! Then nothing could compare too it and it would be the best console for many many years too come :). Too bad it’s false! But whatever it’s gonna be the best console for a long time till Nintendo makes a new one haha.

    This would be one expensive console if it was that powerful. It would be better than my pc: i7 2600k, 16gb of 1600hz ram and my gtx 680. Well the ram would technically be about 9 gigs, but everything else would be blow out of the water. I couldnt see the use for that much ram in a console as it is rofl.

    • Elite

    It’s far more likely that a temporarily hired rep (hired by an agency not Nintendo) actually made this comment.

    I doubt that particular site would make the quote up, sounds like a dumb comment by a temp rep

  • D2K

    Actually we DON’T know that is is a “3-core processor.” That is just the latest RUMOR. The actual processor architecture, speed, and number of cores has not yet been confirmed. The only concrete evidence we have is that the Wii U CPU is a “Power-based” IBM CPU. That is all. We don’t know if it is a PowerPC, a Power6, or a Power7. We probably won’t until someone rips a Wii U apart after launch to give us the full specs.

    • Nintenlord

      we know for shure is not less

    • tronic307

      “IBM Power®-based multi-core processor”
      Power6 is In-Order dual-core (Nintendo’s architecture has been Out-of-Order)
      Power7 consumes more watts than the whole console (500 MFLOPS per watt)
      I can’t wait to see the teardown either…

      • D2K

        “Pardon the error. It’s a custom chip built on Power Architecture base,” the company said.

        What is needed to “tear-down?” IBM said it is a Power-based custom CPU. That is a fact. There are dozens of different Power CPUs. I just gave 3 I gave as an example. Here are some more.

        PowerPC
        e200
        e300
        e500
        e600
        e5500
        QorIQ
        POWER6
        POWER7
        PPC4xx
        PPC7xx
        PPC A2
        PWRficient
        Cell
        Xenon
        Broadway
        RAD750

        And those are just the Power-based CPUs running right now. The ‘Gekko’ and ‘Broadway’ were both custom-made CPUs based on the Power architecture.

        What I find hilarious as that people are quick to point out that the Wii U will not necessarily run on a CPU based on the Power7 because IBM said that it will just be “Power-based” yet they turn around and assume that it will be a PowerPC instead when that hasn’t been confirmed by anyone from Nintendo or IBM either.

        Os the broken down enough for you?

        Since you seem to know so much why don’t you tell us all something the apparently IBM doesn’t know about what’s in the Wii U?

        Just for the record, the fact that developers have stated for the last year that the Wii U CPU is under-clocked and that the Wii U has a GPGPU certain would alleviate stress on the CPU to where power consumption would not be an issue.

        • tronic307

          Some people want to know what’s actually under the hood, some people would rather hold on to their confirmation bias.

    • ceramicsaturn

      To be fair, they used to care about graphics. People tend to forget, the Wii was their only underpowered console. And if the rumors are true that every new Xbox sku will have a Kinect 2 bundled with it as it’ll be intrigral to their control scheme, then to hit a sub 400 dollar price point, I doubt the new Xbox will be earth shatteringly powerful either this time around.

      And we’ve seen what happens when you come out with a really powerful, really expensive system in this economy. You get a PS3 and Vita. And I doubt Microsoft wants to be in those shoes.

    • Troll patrol.

      Nintendo do care about graphics. They don’t care for losing money on over priced consoles though. Go and look at every single Nintendo console apart from the wii (which had fairly decent graphics in some cases) and come back to me.

    it probably was a typo by when they meant 19x it probably was 1.9x stronger because honestly it never going to get better than the wii u because if you want graphic to keep improving more and more then just go look outside and Play! Is that the graphics you would like?

    ”the console packs 2 GB of RAM, 1 GB to the OS and 1 GB to games. Which means it has twice the game memory of current generation”

    Wiiu daily ???? 2GB of RAM is 4 times that of the 360 and ps3 , not twice.

    The ps3 has 0.25GB for video and 0.25 for system , 360 has 0.5GB shared ,

    Wiiu has 1GB video 1GB system , gamepad stream that is 4 times as much according to my calculator .

    I believe it. The Mt Zion Alligator Processor with the Tri Sphinx Gold Staff Graphics Processor along with the Rick James sound chip and 9th Dimension 3D-9D ZVisual Stimulator all powered by the Suzuki SX4 electronic 4 wheel drive system makes the Wii the best, and to think the Sega Master System had this under the hood but smaller scale!

    The xbox is 512 ram but it is shared with the gpu and the ps3 is 256 dedicae to gpu and 256 for CPU and games so the Wii u with 1g just for game make tje console 3 to 4 times more powerful not 50%

  • Leviathan

    Well, it’s still 19 times more powerful than PS1 anyway!

  • deSSy2724

    My quote from “My Nintendo News”

    “I remember now….. Its 19 times stronger.. but wait all! this doesnt means graphics for example will be 19 times better, its not 1:1 ratio. Its easy to be more powerful on paper but its way more complicated to make it “happen” in real time scenario… i would say its something like 10 : 3 ratio (raw power vs real time situation, just an example)….

    http://www.computerandvideogames.com/353860/pc-graphics-now-24-times-more-powerful-than-the-xbox-360/

    And remember, Xbox 360 has a better GPU than PS3… so, 19 times stronger could be “true” (RAW POWER difference, again, not the same ratio like real time situation).”

    • deSSy2724

      In other words… im saying it could really be true, fi todays GPU are 24 times faster than Xbox 360 GPU than it would be posibble that the Wii U GPU is 19 times stronger than Xbox 360….. ofc its not “real time”, its just a RAW number comparsation, test or something but i think if thats true… its more than enough GPU power.

      • Nintedward

        Agreed , It’s perfectly plausable what you have said. The 720 and ps4 could be 50 times more powerfull or what ever .

        But the graphics will just look twice as good …. you earned a cookie , its white chocolate macadamia.

          “Mine…my own…MY PRECIOUS!” XD

          I love white chocolate macadamia cookies! :D

          But yes, I agree that it is possible they were talking about raw power, not graphical capabilities. The next gen’s CPUs will probably be a similar jump. Technology moves fast, and is only building up speed. 15 years ago, it was 1997. The year the games “Ocarina of Time” on 64 and “Spyro the Dragon” on PS1 came out. Look how far we’ve come, both power-wise and gameplay-wise.

    I don’t think that the graphics of the ps4/720 will be much better that the wiiU’s. Because (allmost) everyone has a tv that only supports up to 1080p. So people won’t buy a new tv just to play a new console. At least the graphics won’t be much better.

  • ssb4FC 3007 8585 6950

  • NoPUNintendo

    There’s a slim chance this is true. If it is, then Nintendo would be selling their consoles at a lost. The console would be at least $600, for them to profit from it.

  • Hi8us

    It’s definitely not 19 times more powerful, but having the best specs never guaranteed victory for any console generation.

    • Grodus

      Wasn’t the only console that was the most powerful of it’s generation AND won it the SNES? So, Most of the time, it guarantees loserdom.

  • NoPUNintendo

    Alright I’m going to have to say it, while I’m on here. This is the worst generation of gamers I’ve ever seen. Nintendo has created powerhouse after powerhouse after powerhouse. They make one weaker console(Wii), and suddenly they are the weakest of them all. Suddenly it seems like Nintendo will fail with the Wii U, only because Nintendo wanted to make a profit from the Wii system.Well Nintendo is back with another powerhouse system, and that’s the truth. I wonder what will happen after the Wii U is released. Will fanboys mock the system, believing it’s another Wii and will be weaker than what the others will make? Will they be in awe like we all were back when Nintendo introduced the Nintendo64? I sadly do not know. I can not understand this generation of gamers. I’m not blaming all of you. But some of you. You may know one or two friends that will agree Nintendo is the weakest just because they released one weak console, in terms of graphics. Ps1, Ps2 and, I do think, the Xbox were underpowered during their times. I really hope things change around this generation. I predict graphics will be the same across the PSO, Wii U, and Xbox720. Hopefully, it will turn around and be like the 80s-90s. Where if you argued about graphics instead of games or gameplay, you looked like an idiot.

    End rant.

    but yea i know they pull that out of ur butt… but i really do think the wii-u is bad ass… and really want to get a deluxe when i can

  • XDLugia

    Honestly though, it probably is just a misunderstanding of “1,9″. This roughly translates into it being 2x more powerful than the PS3 which sounds very possible.

  • SteampunkJedi

    …Riiiiight. Salt at the ready.
    Maybe it is 19 times more powerful, if you twist the definition somehow. But however powerful it it is, it will be fine with me. We already more or less know that it’s more powerful than current gen.

  • marioU

    I’d not argue if WiiU is 19 times more powerful than PS2.

    • marioU

      my scout informed me that WiiU is 1 million times more powerful than super sayian goku.

      • Xblade13

        Wii U is more powerful than if you combined the power of:
        -the Triforce
        -the Master Sword
        -all the Dragonballs
        -every Sayian gone Supersayian 4
        -OVER 9000 star powerups
        -the X-blade from Kingdom Hearts
        -the Elder Wand
        -the Chaos Emeralds
        -Optimus Prime
        -all 649 species of Pokémon, from Bulbasaur to Genesect
        -the One Ring
        -every Mortal Kombat fighter
        -Captain America’s shield
        -the Subspace Bombs from SSBB
        -Legos on the floor–in the dark.
        and
        -Samurai Jack (miss that cartoon).

    All I’m thinking is “Can the damned machine get released already so we don’t have to deal with these bloody rumors any more!!”. Seriously I don’t care that the Wii U is less powerful than the eventual PS4, or Nextbox. I don’t feel the need to justify the Wii U as a next gen console over what we have now. I don’t care if the Vita/PS3 can do what the Wii U can. The Wii U will at very minimum provide what I love the most, strong Nintendo franchises. I think the gamepad will offer unique experiences that I look forward to and I think the system will have the horse power needed to create some visually pleasing games. So please November 18th come sooner so I can forget about the rumors and just play some games.

  • metroidfusion2

    Well there are several things to compare to really know how much more powerful the wii u is then this gen so we wont truly know how much more powerful it is until people compare everything about the systems and THE WII U HAS ANOTHER GAME ADDED TO ITS NATIVE 1080P AND 60FPS LINE UP ITS CALLED PUDDLE AND IT WILL BE ON THE ESHOP AMD SO THE WII U AS OF NOW HAS 7 NATIVE 1080P AND 60FPS GAMES AND A LOT MORE SHOULD BE ON THE WAY

    • makaresh

      u know, cpt. caps, that this puddle ist not a difficult to develop cheap PSN-XBoxlive game? this game runs on every console in 1080p. and for gods sake: every console out there has the capability of 1080p even in full priced games. the developers just aren´t able to put their CoD or other mainstream series to this level. i´m glad if (IF) new games are coming only in 1080p in future releases on the wii u, but i highly doubt it!

      and now scream your 1080p for cheap games crap to the kids from the kindergarden. maybe you can impress them a little…

      • metroidfusion2

        Are you sure puddle is running in native 1080p and 60fps on other cobsoles and how many ps3 and 360 games are UPSCALED TO 720P AND 1080P AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING FOR THE WII U LOL HAVING 7 NATIVE 1080P GAMES AS OF NOW BEFORE IT COMES OUT IS A VERY GOOD START AND WHAT ARE PS3 AND 360S GAMES NATIVE RESOLUTION HA LOL IT SEEMS YOU STILL HAVE A LOT OF RESEARCH TO DO ON THE WII U AND WILIPEDIA WILL HELP YO STUPID ASS YOU LITTLE KID LOL

    • Nintedward

      My theory is , the ONLY reason all the other games aren’t in native 1080p is becuase developers are avoiding costs and development time. think about it . Not becuase the system caln’t run it . But becuase they are rushing to meet a deadline and native 720p is easier and quicker.

      • Lazara The Last

        I think you’re right. And if I don’t remember wrong, I think I read that it is true somewhere.

        And while I’m talking to you, Nintendward, do you recommend me to buy a 3DS? I will buy one eventually, but I don’t know when. Here in Norway, they cost 1300 kroner, and that is almost 220 dollars!
        Since I’m getting the Wii U at 3300 kroner (550 dollars), I don’t know if I can’t afford it…

        • Nintedward

          Yh bro!!!! The 3ds is ONE OF the best systems I have ever owned . And I have owned EVERY major system apart from the ps-vita .

          It has absoloutly fantastic games on it !!! Retail games that will blow your mind into bits like – Kid icarus , Resi Rev , LOZ oot 3D , Mario 3D land , MK7 , Kingdom hearts , Street fighter 4 , NSMB2 , DOAD , Tekken prime , Tales of the Abyss , Starfox 3D , and many many others :) .

          ALL those games are sensational , believe me !!!! :) .

          I have an XL and it makes the 3D much easier to see and live with . And the massive screens almost enhance the gameplay experience.

          The 3DS is getting better everyday , with a ton of downloadable retail games and Smaller amazing games readily available on the EU e-shop.

          HIGHEST RECOMENDATION !!!!!! when it first came out last year , I would of said ”meh , not that many games” now ” its one of the best systems ever”.

          • Lazara the Last

            Thanks bro!
            I will buy one then :D

  • Shane

    The only way the Wii U could be 19 times more powerful, is if it was used to complete full potential, which will never happen for ANY console. Seriously, I heard that the PS3 would have been the strongest computer in the world in 1998 form a source I exactly do not remember, but it is realistic in my eyes and what I have seen. They never even use the full potential of ANY console, because I bet they get to a point where they get “stuck” and say, “Damn, well we don’t know how to progress with this any further, without having a more obvious power house in terms of electricity, elements with faster conduction rates, monitor syncronization with the speed of light emitted from the pixels, audio that travels to the audience to a realistic manner, and how do we incorporate this with what is already available to the consumer?” I have a feeling something along these lines was said in one time or another. I guess my point is, no one ever truely finds the TRUE power of what is already in front of them, and instead move along to a more obvious choice of presentation in this case… Whoever designed the first SUCCESSFUL computer chip must have known what the maximum potential was in terms of THAT chip, laying in front of them, right? They designed it, and using every bit of energy in that chip is complicated to not reach a breaking point so to speak. So they design chips with more knowingly used energy capabilities, which in this case is usually bigger, faster conducting, lighting and audio processing, ALL OON REALISTIC TERMS. There was a scientist, that said, “I expect atoms, and movements of them in organized/possibly unorganized fashion to be the ‘new from’ of computer in terms of processing data to an understandable degree”. He never says how, when, where, why, what, and/or who. He just says it’s possible in thinking terms, which is understandable. It DOES sound realistic, and this guy is also the one who explained teleportation. Although it has not been proven, he explained the possibility that 2 twin atoms that have no known existence of each other, can switch places, but will never know of it’s “replacement” and how it fits into their destination, because you can not create or destroy matter(in physical law/rules which can potentially be broken according to quantum physics). This is where consiousness(“soul”) come into to play those certain “twin” atoms actually have a goal in their teleportation… I could go on forever, but I have a feeling at least some of you might think I’m crazy so I’ll stop here. haha :)

    • Shane

      BTW, these aren’t exact quotes, or proven ideas. Just letting you know.

    • makaresh

      the ps3 is a very powerful pc-unit. ask your governments for their military use of it ;)

      in fact it had ever problems with games because of architecture problems and low ram. BUT: the wii u hardware is not (even mathematically) 19 times faster, stronger, capable or whatever.

      this would mean that they would use the best hardware out there and use its full potential. but this won´t happen ;)

      • Shane

        Ya I know. The Navy USED to use the PS3 for communication purposes, but then they got rid of OS feature, unless they allowed the government to continue using that feature. Still though, we all know that they never use ANY console to full capacity.

  • Dave w

    In related news, a man in a hat told me it was 5 billion time more powerful than a shoe. This is also not true.

  • a real bloke in the real world

    easy guys take a breath i was in my city center here in leicester uk and there was a 3DS promo thing in the shopping center the reps are part timers and non gaming or nintendo experts there mostly students looking for part time work

    these reps at the 3DS display and play thing had no idia of spec resolution etc only a short script to work to and no info on Wii U etc

    how this becomes news worthy is beyond insanity !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tell me that any 360 or ps3 fanboy who read that wouldn’t be on here in a hearbeat to refute those claims. Please keep this site respectable and put an end to the trolling. thanks.

  • Stugorna

    Actually, to be exact its 23.9 times, that is 2390%, more powerful than the PS3 :)

  • NintendoGamer23

    19 times more powerful they say…. well now im really playin with power! :D

  • Nintendude

    19x more powerful than the Wii? I would buy that. PS3 and 360? Not so much. The Wii CPU is basically 3 Wii CPUs piggybacked and overclocked. The GPU is a 2 generation old offering from AMD, which is probably 19x more powerful than the GPU in the Wii alone, seeing that the Wii is using a GPU that was (in PC terms) out of date when it originally launched on the GameCube. That’s a GPU that was outdated 11 years ago vs. a GPU that was outdated (in PC terms) about 2-3 years ago. To put that into perspective, the 360 and PS3 are using graphics that were outdated by a couple years when they launched in 2005, you’re looking at about a 7 year difference in GPU technology. The big question is, will the CPU be able to keep up with the GPU? The CPU is definitely going to be the limiting factor…

  • Shane

    Let’s just remember that if you were to use the Wii U system memory to make a new NES style game, it could pottentially take more than 100 years to complete the game. If they made a new Zelda that was the same style as the very first one, the world would be so big with too many quests to ever complete. I hope they make a Zelda someday, that combines all the attributes of all the ones before, like sailing in Wind Waker, horse back riding, fishing anywhere, building houses as sidequests and starting new towns that build themselves after enough of your help, the bird calling(SS, and TP), new areas(not just Hyrule), maybe some DLC like they said would happen in Twilight Princess. I imagined so much they could have done in that game, like adding an area to the left of Eldin Bridge(Wii) where there’s just a canyon drop… A Skyrim type Zelda game would be the best, and technically that’s how the first one was, besides no RPG elements. Plus, no “pointless” sidequests like Skyrim that have no story behind them besides what has been accomplished, and some rupees in return. Like the Biggoron sword quest, but with more story behind it that is apparent to the player. Or the mask quest, kinstone pieces, but put more story behind it besides a treasure in the end. I want to feel like there’s no limit in the game like borders, or a bank that can hold endless amounts of rupees instead of 5000. I think that’s why Majora’s Mask was one of my favorite games, because there was a story behind alot of the sidequests besides do this, and then there’s not a cutscene or anything…

    With comments like this and responders named “God”, this must be the sh*t talking article. This is what happens when people have too much free time.

  • Smurfman256 (3DS friend code 2664-3504-7055)

    You know, as much as I would like to believe this, this guy/girl is just talking out of his/her ass. Probably much closer to 5X more powerful (eg, wasn’t the GameCube about 5X more powerful than the N64?)

  • Shane

    Well, it doesn’t matter if it’s 19x more powerful or not. Even if it was 10% more powerful it would still be alot, considering what the PS3 and Xbox can already do in last 1/4 of their life. They probably won’t even be able to make better graphics for PS4 and Xbox 1080 than Wii U for at least 2-3 years after they come out, considering the developers learn new tricks, schemes, and other designing knowledge from the more powerful Wii U development kits. Technically, the Wii U games will be overall better from the start of it’s launch, which is important, and they will figure out how to do more with the console, and PS3/XBox 360 will fall behind, but when PS4/XBox 1080 come out, they will have the Wii U developing techniques and WILL apply them to the new consoles. If Unreal Engine 4 is released, or even fully developed to be used when Wii U comes out, Wii U will be very far ahead of Sony and Microsoft in terms of what they know will work, but when/if they move on to the other consoles, who’s to say they will know how to reapply that to a more powerful console, and move beyond that? The new Unreal Engine 4 was already confirmed to be able to work with Wii U on a “downgraded” scale, but who knows when they will actually release it? If they decide that Unreal Engine 4 is complete, and developers start using it for Wii U, Nintendo will be EXTREMELY far ahead in terms of capability. Even if the new engine is made for a more powerful console than Wii U, it will be the only one to support it more, until the new consoles come out. Wii U will be the choice for gamers no matter what their preference is, until Sony or Microsoft release a new console. Besides, no one knows when they will come out with a new one, what it will be able to do, price, all that… Nintendo is VERY far ahead in the industry in my eyes. Once the nex PS and XB come out, Nintendo will probably start thinking about what they should do next, but no sooner, no later.

    • OgGamer

      Everything you said is true but when nintendo releases a system they are already working on their next system. Believe me like with the wii they didn’t release a hd system bc they knew what percentage of houseolds had a Hd TV in them the no Hd system was stragetic as wii was being released wii u was in the works. Nintendo doesnt take a brake. The next system is already on the drawing board and they will spend 5 years perfecting the next system. NINTENDO IS THE S***

      I could’ve sworn Atari did though.

        yeah and also atari ended it too in 1983 and nintendo revived the industry with the nes so we owe alot to nintendo

    I Can’t forget Sega. Without the competition between Nintendo and Sega, Sony and Microsoft never would have jumped into the game back in the 90′s. I gave EVERYONE on here a thumbs up except for @god he’s WACK… WII U made by Nintendo thats all the specs I need.
