    Ok, I didn't find anything like this so here are the comparisons so far:
    Gamecube: MPU (Microprocessor Unit): 485 MHz custom IBM PowerPC Gekko
    Graphics Processor: 162 MHz custom ATI/Nintendo Flipper
    Texture-Read Bandwidth: 10.4 GB per second (peak)
    Main Memory Bandwidth: 2.6 GB per second (peak)
    Pixel Depth: 24-bit color, 24-bit Z buffer
    Sound Processor: 81 MHz custom Macronix 16-bit DSP
    Sound Performance: 64 simultaneous channels, ADPCM encoding
    Polygon Performance: 6 to 12 million polygons per second (peak)
    System Memory: 40 MB
    Main Memory: 24 MB MoSys 1T-SRAM
    Disc Drive: 128 ms CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) system
    Data Transfer Speed: 16 Mbps to 25 Mbps

    Here are Wii: 729 MHz IBM PowerPC "Broadway" CPU 243 MHz ATI "Hollywood" GPU
    24MBs "main" 1T-SRAM 64MBs other 1T-SRAM
    512MBs internal flash memory 3MBs texture memory on GPU
    Built-in 802.11b/g Wi-Fi capability One SD memory card bay

    As you can see the Graphics processor was updated from 162 MHz to 243 MHz, this is a nice improvement I would say. And the Power PC has been upgraded greatly! So it was upgraded 81 MHz in the graphics processor, this is great! What do you guys think? Or cna anyone else dig up more info?

    nice copy-pasting

    you know that mhz/ghz procces ratings show hardly anything of the actual consoles performance

    Xbox Specs:
    CPU: Intel Pentium III 733-MHz processor technology with streaming SIMD extensions
    Graphics processor: 233-MHz, custom-designed X-Chip, developed by Microsoft and Nvidia
    Total memory: 64MB of RAM (unified memory architecture)
    Memory bandwidth: 6.4GB/second
    Polygon performance: 150M/sec
    Sustained polygon performance (full features): 100M/sec

    Not much different from Xbox 1 I say. Even though Spec's won't prove its actual performance, but it does give you a rough idea of what to expect from it.

    I guess that is good news, I don't really know what I am talking about and I am really tired.

    Those specs are only a rumor? Is it likely that the real specs are close to these?

    I think I'll take back the comment I previously made. Clock speed(mhz) doesn't really show its actual performance. Take computer CPUs for example: a 2.2ghz(2200mhz) AMD CPU has the same performance as a 3.0ghz(3000mhz) Intel CPU even though AMD has a lower clock rate. Right now nobody knows what the Wii is capable of and only time can tell.
