    No, they are jumping to conclusions based on the unmodified version of the GPU that wasn't anything special even when it was released

    I thought shader 4 was DX10 and shader 5 was DX11.

    On topic.. If it can manage Dx11 like graphics then great!. I am eager to see developers take full advantage of the hardware. I'm sure that Dice and Crytek won't hold back.

    Maybe DX11 compatible isn't the same as awesome DX11 graphics.

    It doesn't have DX11. This article is only saying it can produce graphics equivalent to DX11. The Unity Engine works with shader model 4, but it will not be as good as model 5.

    I highly doubt the Wii U is capable of producing graphics equivalent to DX11 without out supporting DX11.

    I'm not concerned about the graphics on Wii U just want to play with the gamepad and use the NintendoTVii app that looks intriguing!

    I'm sure Nintendo will be the only ones that will be able to produce the best looking games on the Wii U maybe Retro studios as well

    Exactly. It's impossible as DirectX 11 features are not available in DirectX 10.1. Real-Time Ray-Tracing/Ray-Casting and Tessellation are three technologies of many.

    Where do you get this? I can't find any details about the CPU. From what I gather it's a 3GHz quadcore POWER7 chip, which sounds pretty good. But the general consensus seems to be that the CPU is weak, so I'm wondering if there is some source which I can't find with a details breakdown of the CPU?

    This is what the Tekken developer had to say about the CPU. http://wiiudaily.com/2012/07/tekken-...ock-kinda-low/
