While there’s been a lot of the information about the Wii U’s external features, there’s been very little information about what’s under the hood. But we now have some information about the Wii U’s graphics card.
According to Japanese publication Game Watch, the Wii U runs off a AMD Radeon HD 4000 series class GPU.
The Radeon HD 4000 was originally released in 2008, three years ago, which means that the Wii U’s graphics are being powered by last-generation technology. It may better than Microsoft and Sony’s current cards, but by the time the Wii U is released over a year from now, it’ll be even more dated.
While this still makes graphics on the Wii U top-notch for today’s standards, I can’t help but worry about the console’s longevity.
