What do you guys think is going to be inside of the Wii U when the big reveal is finally made? My predictions are...

CPU - 2.5-3.5GHz quad-core (one locked or limited) with Power7 characteristics. Based on IBM's statements, I could see as much as 32MB eDRAM.

RAM - 1.5 - 2GB GDDR3 with as much as 512MB reserved depending on the OS's needs.

GPU - Custom chip with performance similar to a Radeon 4870. The fanboy in me thinks the Nintendo is going to surprise us with something like the Radeon 5770.

Not going to attempt to speculate on precise components, but my general estimate is 3-5x as capable as the Ps3/360.
