Wii U Specs?

A Japanese website has supposedly found the details regarding the inner workings of the Wii-U. While it will be running on "old hardware" it still packs a punch in comparison to it's competition.

According to their sources, the chip is similar to the AMD R770, which was released in 2009. It'll support Direct X 10 and capabale of streaming up to 4 standard definitions of content.

That doesn't seem like much since we're at Direct X11 now. But keep in mind that the XBox 360 can only go as high as 9 and was released in 2006. So the Wii-U is definitely packing some new heat. It's also speculated that no DVD's or Blu-Ray on the "console," but it'll sport a long library of Nintendo goodies.
