How can the Wii U possibly compete with the PS4's graphics?

The PS4 is going to be much more powerful than the Wii U. Lets compare them.

PS4:
CPU: AMD A10 APU
GPU: A10(7660D) + AMD Radeon HD 6670

Wii U
CPU: Some IBM chip
GPU: AMD Radeon E6760 (supposedly)

Since the Wii U's CPU has no benchmarks, lets compare the GPUs. I'll be using videocardbenchmark.net

PS4's GPU has a score of 1133. Wii U's GPU has a score of 873.

http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Radeon+HD+7660D+%2B+6670+Dual&id=2249

http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Radeon+E6760&id=251

The PS4 clearly has the advantage, scoring a whopping 260 points higher. Supposedly, the PS4 will be $400. So why would anyone buy a Wii U when the PS4 will beat it's GPU by 260 points and only cost $100 more. You'll be getting an extra 130 for free with the PS4.

The Wii U will be ancient tech next year when the graphical powerhouse PS4 is released. It's clear that if you want games with good graphics, the only choice is PS4.


Guess you missed the news article that explained why such a massive graphical leap is actually a bad idea for both developers and consumers... unless you want to buy games for $100 a pop.

If you want a graphical powerhouse, buy a PC.


The PS4 will destroy PC graphics because of something called optimization. So even if a PC will have marginally better specs, PS4 will have better graphics.

Same way the Wii did

By Nintendo fans putting their fingers in their ears going LALALALLALGRAPHICSDONTMATTERLALALA" and happily given their money away for out of date tech


I just watched 800 people walk into a gamestop and buy a game that is about the same every year with almost no innovation and millions more will around the world. I don't think nintendo fans are the problem.



NSMB Wii U is out?


You really wanna go there? Lets see 2d Mario games and the years they were released in:
New Super Mario Bros Wiiu 2012
New Super Mario Bros 2 2012 ok this one is fine because it is the first time this happened, and lets face it of CoD could make it on portables we'd average 3 games a year.
New Super Mario Bros wii 2009
New Super Mario Bros 2006
The next one would be.....oh yeah it's been that long Super Mario World 2 Yoshi's Island 1995 yeah clearly every year you jackass.

Cod is
Cod 2 2005
Cod 3 2006
Cod 4 2007
WaW 2008
MW2 2009
Blops 2010
MW3 2011
Blops 2 2012

Pretty sure I made my point.



You need a medal, sir!

I want what you must of been smoking. I will admit console EXCLUSIVE game look good because the devs only have to focus on that specific hardware but please make sure you know what you are talking about before ranting on like that. New consoles are still generations behind pc hardware. PC will always destroy consoles and im not a fanboy since I own every console plus my rig. Its FACT!

For freak's sake TC, get outta the basement and get some fresh air and sunshine. We have few concrete specs on any of the next-gen consoles, including the Wii-U, other than the fact that it uses a Power7-based CPU and Radeon-based GPU - we don't know the clockspeed/make of either.
