Wii U specs leaked

Specifications for Nintendo's Wii U that have been leaked online show that the next-gen console will only boast 8GB of internal storage

 

Leaked specifications of Nintendo's forthcoming Wii U hint that consumers may have to rely on SD cards for the lion's share of their game data storage.

The leaked specs indicate that Nintendo's next-gen console will offer on 8GB of onboard storage, but will feature an SD card slot that can accommodate 2GB SD cards up 32GB SDHC cards. The console will also offer users the option of connecting to an external drive or storage device over USB. The lack of onboard storage may be an indication that Nintendo doesn't plan to push downloadable content on its new platform quite as much as industry analysts have speculated.

Alongside its onboard storage, the Wii U will feature an 'Espresso' CPU with three enhanced Broadway cores and a “GPU7” High Definition GPU for the graphics, which supports Shader Model 4.0. Wi Fi connectivity is featured as standard and the specs make no mention of Ethernet connectivity. Compatible cables include HDMI, Wii D-Terminal, Wii Component Video, Wii RGB, Wii S-Video Stereo AV and Wii AV.

The Wii U specs were posted on VGleaks website, which according to gaming website Videogamer.com, is responsible for leaking accurate information about Wii U, Durango and Gears of War: Judgment..
