Nintendo HD Console Is 'Project Cafe,' More Powerful Than Xbox 360
The new system is said to be slightly more powerful than the Xbox 360 and uses a custom IBM PowerPC CPU with three cores, a GPU from the ATI R700 family, and at least 512MB of RAM.
Sources also talk in detail about the new controller for the system, it has a six inch touch screen as well as a front-facing camera, D-pad, two bumpers, two triggers and maybe even more. Apparently, it can also double as a Wii sensor bar.
More importantly, Project Cafe will also have backwards compatibility for Wii and GameCube titles.
The new system is pegged for a late 2012 release.
