The gaming site MaxConsole is claiming to have been tipped off to the full breakdown of what is really behind and inside Nintendo's Wii console. Attributing the information to an "anonymous Wii developer," we'll have to take this information with a full tank of skepticism.
Either way, it's a fairly thorough list and for the most part, looks to include plausible statistics. Here are some of the more interesting stats:
- Internal non-removable 512MB flash memory used to storage game save data and downloadable content thus eliminating the need for a memory card.
- Optical Disc Drive (ODD) supports single and dual layer Wii disks, discs eject with software or button and the maximum read speed is the equivalent of DVDx6.
- Nintendo Wii's 'Broadway' CPU operates at 729MHZ with a maximum bandwith of 1.9gbyte/sec.
- The GPU of the Wii is identical to the GC's but it is on average 1.5X faster.
