Wii U CPU and GPU Rendered in High-Res

Today we got a decent rendering of the Wii U CPU and GPU that complements the previous blurry chip shots. It is not an actual photo, but rather a photoshopped recreation of the package.

The image includes the PowerPC 750-based tri-core Wii U CPU as the smaller version of the two chips, as well as the larger GPU and 32 Mb of GPU memory. The 1.23 GHz CPU has been widely criticized for its lackluster performance, while it has been praised for its low power consumption of about 33 watts under load.

The Wii's GPU reportedly runs at 550 MHz.
