As a side note, Radeon's R770 series chips, which all fall within their 4xxx series, are designed to allow for one HD video and one SD video simultaneously. This is probably why the early Wii U devkits could only use one controller, since the GPU was only designed for one SD screen.

I didn't know this, but it would explain it's inclusion in the dev kits as a stopgap for working with the table while they work out their custom chip like oz was saying.

Thats really interesting.

I'm pretty sure the 4870 was fully capable of outputting 2x full 1080p

"Two integrated 400 MHz 30-bit RAMDACs
Each supports analog displays connected by VGA at all resolutions up to 2048x15362"

I guess so. thats a big resolution.

It's just to get attention really.
