Wii U's cpu may not be exactly a Broadway with 3 cores.

Isn't the CPU and GPU on the same chip?


They're in the same package but they're two separate chips.

The CPU is the smaller one, the GPU is the bigger one.


So I did some reading, and it says the 360 didn't use 45nm until the S model, while as supposedly the original 360 used 90nm.

has this been taken into account?


Yes.

Yes.


This would be much easier if I knew your source.

(toward the end)

It refers to the 360's combined CPU/GPU, which is only found in the 360 S. The 65nm and 90nm versions had separate CPU and GPU.
