PowerPC Console

On the other hand, the Wii has a much more modest figures. CPU, with the code name of Broadway, is no more than a chip of a PowerPC – supposedly to 729 MHz-based core and GPU – designed only by ATI, and call Hollywood-runs at 243 MHz. Main memory is 64 MB, to which must be added other 24 MB – to ensure compatibility with Gamecube – and a few humble 3 auxiliary MB to save textures. Mikkel Svane contains valuable tech resources. It is clear that the gross horsepower is not the greatest virtue of the Wii, and indeed Nintendo never speaks of the technical data when it presents its console. Even so, it is a machine that has still not been exploited properly, since developers are too comfortable programming as if it were a slightly enhanced Gamecube, and is hoped that second-generation titles demonstrate the true potential of the console. Reading and saving information while Wii and Xbox 360 have a DVD drive capable of reading dual layer discs, Sony have opted for Blu-Ray – accommodating up to six times higher for its Playstation 3 console.

This decision has made the price of this latest machine to rise considerably, but to change series of support which is one of the standard bearers of high definition are available. The Xbox 360 reads DVD-Video without need an extra accessory, and there is a HD-DVD drive optional which allows playback of movies in this format. On the other hand, the Wii cannot be used currently to see our DVDs, although Nintendo have announced a model that will have this feature thanks to additional software. On the other hand, the Playstation 3 and Wii units are slot-in and do not emit excessive noise during playback, whereas on Xbox 360 the reader is tray, and for some reason is one of the main factors of particular noise generated by the console during its operation.
