Next-gen console specs: PS4 vs. Xbox One vs. Wii U
Now that the Xbox One has been officially revealed, let’s have a look at the specs between all three systems. We know what the Wii U and the Xbox One look like, but Sony has chosen not to reveal their console except in elusive clips. Still, the spec list fore each console is now available. Both the Xbox and the PlayStation seem to stack up similarly in regards to specs, though the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has a massive eight-core processor.
All three consoles have AMD powered GPUs, while the Xbox One and Playstation 4 have an AMD powered CPU. The Wii U is powered by IBM’s PowerPC architecture, leaving nVidia solely to mobile and PC graphics. As far as features go, the Xbox One followed Nintendo’s direction by including live TV in their console, including a guide view that Nintendo made popular with TVii. Currently it looks like Microsoft is stepping on Nintendo’s toes quite a bit with the Wii U’s TVii system.
