I read this... http://www.vg247.com/2013/05/10/wii-u-latest-system-update-has-increased-cpu-gpu-speed-rumour/ I couldn't help but laugh a little... Seriously? This is just a crazy increase in speed if its true. And if it is true, that thing is going to get hot VERY fast indeed. With adequate cooling, I don't think it will be able to cool this... I know the TDP on these chips are already really low due to them needing to comply with certain regulations and the fact that its a console the size of a matchbox (not quite but you get what I mean lol). Thats a 2GHz increase on the CPU and a 250MHz increase on the GPU! Unless they originally designed the WiiU to be clocked at these speeds and released it early due to people wanting something new from Nintendo, but they had problems with it at these speeds. And maybe now they have tweaked it to achieve these speeds. Or as someone else suggested, people were originally taking the original clock speeds from the WiiU when it was in emulation mode for Wii games which would mean it might have been clocked slower. I honestly think this is just B$ but what do you guys think..?
