Does the Wii U support tessellation?

Jesus christ. The TC just wreaked a bunch of baby gamers minds with this topic. All I see is a bunch of 12 year olds who never touched a computer for anything but Microsoft Office and Facebook trying to wikipedia things on tessellation trying to say their beloved console could do it to without a massive performance hit if <devs> weren't so lazy. This board is astoundingly.....


I suppose you must be referring to me, but I didn't say anything of the sort. The fact of the matter is, the Wii U's GPU is likely going to have a dedicated tesselation unit, and like the Xbox 360, almost no developers will use it. Probably because it's not a very powerful tesselator, because utilizing it requires additional shader processing(called the hull shader and domain shader stages in DX11), and because it's overall not worth the effort.

I don't know where you get the idea that I'm some rabid Wii U fanboy from. I've been more critical of the console than most here, I fully acknowledge it's technical shortcomings, and I don't have any near-future plans to even buy one.

Also funny how they claim I make fun of mentally handicapped (I don't), yet Buretsu just tried to call me mentally impaired and make a jest of it. Lol, guess it makes sense based on how he made death threats to Linetrix in another thread.

I'm talking about tessellations. Geometric shape sensations.
