Wait so apparently the Wii U is very underpowered at 1.7 ghz?

Guess we all should have just got a component cable for the wii and prayed for mercy from Sony and Microsoft. Lol

Clock speed means barely anything when it comes to processors these days. Though, considering your name you're probably just here to troll and actually aren't here to have a discussion about it.

Nope, don't have a sig. Maybe later.

That a lousy 1.7 GHz CPU is able to give us a better Tekken TT2 version than a 3.2GHz CPU should tell us that clockspeed is not everything.

Well, the Wii U also has a GGPU which does a lot of things a processor used to be required for. In other words, it means you can have a less than stellar CPU and still get some high quality stuff being churned out. The problem is some devs don't seem to realize how much of a boon a GGPU is.

Look, it's another "low clock speed CPU" thread.

How original.

Don't argue with Neanderthals. Oh i see bigger number must be better!! Logic tells you that its newer tech and its better everything in the tech world revolves around making things smaller and faster and run more efficiently next they will be saying something about the graphics card being old.

Clock speed means nothing when comparing CPUs across different eras.

The Wii U CPU might be only be 1.2-1.7 GHz, but it's running on more advanced architecture and die size. Not to mention it comes with an assload of eDRAM. Real world performance should put it on par, if not slightly better than other tri-core CPUs running at more than twice the clockspeed. Newer chips tend to be much more efficeint.

It'd be like saying a 3GHz pentium 4 processor would beat out a 1.7 GHz i5 (hint: it won't). Clockspeed means nothing.
