could wiiU hypothetically uscale wii games like dolphin?

Just curious if this would be possible with a hack? Seems it could at least upscale to 720p

It's an emulator and, theoretically, the Wii U's GPU should be able to upscale Wii games to 1080p without breaking a sweat, given how little power it'd have to devote to the actual graphics.

Wii U's Wii Mode already does upscale Wii games.

No it doesn't.

I think the TC meant make the games run natively in 720p, a feat that the Wii U's GPU should be able to do without even blinking.

I'm pretty sure the additional hardware is ignored in Wii mode, its not emulation like dolphin.

The Wii U GPU actually contains the Wii GPU, which allows that 100% BC. The question is whether that part of the GPU, if not limited to just Wii Mode, can output at 720p/1080p or if the Wii U side of the GPU contains all the necessary features that the Wii GPU does (and more) to do the rendering itself. If the Wii U GPU doesn't have all the necessary capabilities, then we'd likely end up with problems like trying to play Rogue Squadron II on Dolphin outside of software rendering.
