    This got me thinking ever since I stumbled upon the Wikipedia page for the Wii. I went there a few weeks back (dating back from Sun 27 August 2006) and under the "Technical Specifications" the Wii's CPU was clocked at 3.1Ghz, a massive leap from the initially stated 729Mhz. My suspicions were later strengthened when this figure was suddenly removed from Wikipedia, only to be replaced by the ambiguous "IBM Broadway" statement.

    Could it be true? Don't get me wrong, it could have been a simple error of editing. But if it is true then graphically, the Wii could have a half decent chance of squaring with its competitors (please don't get into an argument about the use of the term 'competitors' because I am aware Nintendo has officially stated they are not aiming to compete, but as long as Sony and Microsoft threaten Nintendo's domain they are still considered competitors by my standards).

    Note: I have not seen the figure of 3.1Ghz mentioned anywhere else, so if it is true the editor of Wikipedia must have done some hardcore scouring of the web... If anyone else can find some confirmation or rebuttal to this please let me know!

    I doubt it will be as high as that. The wii isn't about the specs/graphics etc, its about the games. I doubt nintendo would of put that much into the wii, and certainly not sell it for as cheap as im hoping for if they did.

    maybe the first one was given, then the 3.1 was fake that someone added, then they took it off and at the time they were seeing the wii is more powerful so they just replaced it by that to stop speculation

    Wikipedia, as much as i love it, is being screwed with all the time, people defacing stuff, which is a shame because its a great idea. But i wouldn't site wikipedia as your rock solid source.

    Wiki is hopeless as a reputable source. 3.1Ghz seems a bit much.

    Hey Ezekiel86. I've seen rumored sites that claim that nintendo Made different versions of the Broadway CPU ranging from 3.2GHz - 729MHz and the Hollywood GPU ranging from 1GHz - 243MHz. Supposedly they tested this chips to determine what was best. It's also rumored they settled with a CPU Approx. 1.7GHZ and a GPU Approx. 555MHz. Don't know it you seen that. Can't rememer where I saw It.

    It's not memory, it's a measure of speed. That is how much data the processor can process per second.

    Well I just wrote honestly about a 20-30 minute post explaining the systems and what GPU/CPU/RAM was, but it got erased somehow :(

    1000 Mhz = 1 Ghz I believe.

    clock speed is not the only factor for processor power, there are many factors that go into it, in the Pentium only days MHz were used as a basic comparison after IBM compatible was no longer sufficient, so consumers wouldn't have to look at all the specs and make their own uneducated decision. I have heard rumors that the 729 was not a valid speed and was just a measure given by a Nintendo rep of what the system was CURRENTLY running at, I believe this was on the dev system, the statement "currently" is supposed to be taken as it will run faster on full production but look what its doing at just 729 right now. until Nintendo updates their homepage with specs I won't believe anything spec-wise, and it was a user that wrote the 3.1 GHz and had no source, that is why it was removed.
