More Wii U tech specs rumoured

Nintendo’s next generation home console will run a custom edition of AMD’s Radeon R770 GPU, according to a fresh round of unconfirmed reports.

The graphics chip giant is apparently building a custom Radeon R770 GPU for the console, according to Japanese website Game Impress Watch.

The report, citing AMD insiders, claim the chip is similar to the R770 unit which rolled out in 2009. The console also supports Direct X 10.1, the report said.
