Now I know what you thinking ‘the Wii U has nothing to do with PC gaming’ and up to a couple of weeks ago I would be inclined to agree with you until I read into the specifications of Nintendo's up and coming console and what I found seemed very good, very good indeed.
At this moment in time the PC is held back graphically but the current gen consoles, PS3 and Xbox 360, due mainly to multi platform releases. This could change with the graphical power of the Wii U.
The Wii U uses a ‘Custom AMD Radeon-based High Definition GPU’, which is most likely to a custom AMD Radeon HD 6700M/HD 6600M with is better than the both the Xbox 360’s 500 MHz ATI Xenos and the PS3’s 550 MHz NVIDIA/SCEI RSX 'Reality Synthesizer' gfx cards.
This could mean that instead of getting a low spec Xbox 360 port a PC gamer might just avail of the Wii U graphical capabilities.
In a interview with Gamespot an Ubisoft employee said the following
“The central processing unit (CPU) of the Wii U is just as powerful as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and the graphics processing unit (GPU) is a one and half times as strong.”
It seems like good news for the average pc gamer and even better news for consumers as a whole.
