Fun fact, no one gave a damn about the speeds of the CPU and GPU before this.

People cared about 16 bit for God's sake. What a stupid false fact.

Now when the Wii U releases, everyone is all about the CPU speeds and the power of the GPU, but before not one person actually gave a damn.


Fun fact, b/c no other system ever came out with a CPU slower then the current 7 year old systems.


Again, the CPU isnt the key factor in this console, hence why they went the route that they did with the GPU.

I get tired of explaining this :/

lol console specs. Pc gaming>consoles. Srsly everyone who does give a damn about specs so much these days, you might as well have a top end gaming pc. With a 10,000 dollar phase cool unit, an Alienware case, because alienware cases are bad ***. With Dual 7850s, 16 core cpu, with 4.20ghz.


you sound quite naive when talking about computer components, I suggest you never do it again.

I guess you're to young to remember past system launches tc because people did care. It's been like this since the Atari versus Intellivision days.


No it wasn't silly.


I know, it was intelivision vs coloecovision.

I still remember the words on the box of the coloecovision:

"arcade quality video game system"

And yes it nearly looked "as good as the arcade"

I remember playing the poo outta DK Jr on that machine!

I realized he was full of **** when he mentioned Alienware, the Dane Cook of PC gaming hardware.

That and he has no idea what he's talking about lol Where's he getting retail 16 core CPU's(REAL cores not hyper threaded)? Unless he's using a dual CPU board and two xeon processors which you can't overclock if I remember correctly lol. That and he then goes on to use 7850's as his GPU example? lol then a 10,000 dollar cooler? ya that's some awesome balanced system there ;p
