With all the other news about the Wii U, there is currently a rumor reporting that the Wii U is to have more than 1 GB of RAM. This is among other rumors surfacing about the Wii U console.
Hit the jump to see the details.
The actual quote from the supposed “inside source” is that the RAM should be “quite surprising, though less than 8 GB.”
By comparison, the Xbox 360 has only 512 MB RAM (about half a GB) and the PlayStation 3 has 256 MB RAM, thus the Wii U would be twice as powerful as the most powerful current system.
With higher RAM, the system will be able to play games faster and may even be able to work like a computer (which, if it does run like a computer, would most likely run on a LINUX/Nintendo OS like the Wii). Of course, this is all speculation based on an unconfirmed rumor, so none of it can be take at face value.
Do you think it would be implemented or is it just a rumor? Leave a comment voicing your opinion.
