Wii U 50% More Powerful than PS3?
Speculation has emerged that the Wii U is 50% more powerful than PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Industry Gamers has quoted Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia as saying, "Some of the developers we spoke to indicated to us that the console will have 50 per cent more processing power compared to the PS3 or Xbox 360. This is yet to be confirmed by Nintendo."
But this conflicts with the remarks of John Carmack, id Software's technology chief. Speaking to Gamespot, he said that "the technology level on there brings it up to parity with the other consoles." <--- so does that mean it's 50% more powerful than PS3? If that was the case, then the Nintendo Wii U would be a super computer.
If you have read, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has connected 1,760 PlayStation 3 systems together to create what the organization is calling the “fastest interactive computer in the entire Defense Department”.
