Nintendo could have won E3 2011 already with new specs insight

We have just informed you about a potential bombshell regarding Microsoft’s E3 2011 keynote and a brand new Fable game, but now we have some information for Nintendo fans, and you’ll be pleased to hear we have some major new details regarding the Nintendo Wii 2 console, or Project Cafe as it’s also known.

Considering this is a brand new piece of hardware that Nintendo will announce, we’ve actually had a decent amount of information on the console already, prior to it’s announcement. However, the biggest leak has perhaps been saved until last, and it comes courtesy of an anonymous user and their information posted to NeoGaf forums.

The info has been split into three categories, Specs, Controller and Games for the system. We’ll be just talking about new spec updates for the console though, as we’re hearing that the Nintendo Wii 2 will run on a IBM triple-core CPU, with 3.6GHz per core, an AMD R700 graphics chipset and 1-1.5GB of RAM.

Furthermore, we’re hearing that titles on the Nintendo Wii will all support 1080p visuals, and early evidence from insiders suggest that games are looking ‘stunning’.

It’s pretty mouthwatering stuff isn’t it? Just to put those hardware specs into perspective, the current Wii runs on the Broadway CPU which operates at 729MHZ, with the Hollywood GPU running at 243MHZ with 3mb of graphics memory.

A new Nintendo Wii console with three processors each clocking in at 3.36Ghz will be able to handle some serious gaming grunt, so if the specs are confirmed at E3 2011, it’s going to be extremely interesting to see what both Sony and Microsoft think with regards to their upcoming PS4 and Xbox 720 consoles.

Has Nintendo just emerged as the new favorite to deliver the most impressive next generation gaming console after the Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360?
