Nintendo Wii U gets a teardown

Written by Slobodan Simic

Wii U

Anand takes it apart


There have been more than a few reviews of the new Nintendo Wii U and most hardware specs have already been confirmed, but Anandtech.com took it a step further by doing a complete teardown to reveal the Wii U's innards.

In case you have been wondering about the PCB, cooling, or the actual look of Wii U's MCM with 45nm IBM PowerPC based CPU next to the AMD RV7xx GPU, you are in luck as Anand was more than happy to tear it apart and show that bare PCB.

Anand also did a full power consumption analysis showing that Wii U can draw as much as 33W, or as low as 0.22W from your power outlet.

You can check out the full teardown here.
