Longtime Wii and new Wii U hacker “Marcan” claims to have some information about Durango’s specs. Specifically, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 successor is rumored to have a 1.6GHz CPU.
A couple of days ago, Marcan also outed the Wii U’s CPU clock speed, which apparently comes in at 1.243125GHz. He said that the system’s GPU core clocks in at 549.999755MHz.
Of course, clock speed is just one element of a CPU (and hardware overall). Cores and hardware threads play a role with regard to performance as well. There’s been talk of Durango having anywhere from four to eight cores.
It goes without saying that all Durango spec rumors should be taken with a grain of salt. Remember, Microsoft still has yet to officially announce the new console!
