Wii U to be twice as powerful as Xbox 360?
On the heels of IGN’s leaked Wii U and Xbox 720 relative power levels, the publication Develop revealed an alleged leak of their own. Their source claims that the Wii U is twice as powerful as the Xbox 360, when both general processing and graphics rendering capabilities are taken into account.
This figure seems noticeably lower than the other rumour’s, but it should be noted that the source made this claim sometime last year – presumably, they might have been working with an underclocked prototype dev kit.
A twofold advantage over the Xbox 360 is “broadly above market expectations,” according to Develop, but apparently, it’s not quite enough. Their source claims that a project designer “[complained] it’s underpowered compared to what Nintendo announced, resulting in people having to de-scale their plans”.
