Project Cafe and Its Rumored Tech Specs



For the past week or so, the gaming journalist community has been having a field day concerning strong rumors that Nintendo will unveil a new system, now dubbed Project Cafe, at this year's E3.

What was absent in the rumors recieved thus far, however, were tech specs concerning Project Cafe. Thanks to several sources reporting to IGN, not only do we have tech specs, we also have a possible name for the system, as well as a rumored price point and the manufacturer for the system.

According to the rumors, Project Cafe will feature a revamped version of AMD's R700 GPU architecture, which will outperform the Playstation 3's NVIDIA 7800GTX processor. The CPU, similar to the one featured in the Xbox 360, will be a custom-built triple-core IBM PowerPC chipset. The difference between the Xbox 360's CPU and Project Cafe's CPU is that Project Cafe will have faster clocking speeds.

The system, as previously stated in earlier rumors, will support 1080p output, but new to the facts gathered is that it will have the potential to support stereoscopic 3D. At the moment, it has not been stated that the 3D will be a main feature of Project Cafe.

The overall size of the console is said to bear resemblance to the original Xbox 360. The system design is much like a modernized version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

The controllers have been rumored to feature touchscreens, and will be able to stream games to each controller, possibly allowing each unit to provide a virtualized console.

Nintendo is considering naming the console 'Stream', supporting rumors that the new system will drop the 'Wii' moniker. Project Cafe may have a retail price anywhere between $350USD and $400USD, depending on manufacturing costs. Manufacturing will be handled by Taiwanese manufacturer Foxconn, and will begin this October.

Technically, the system could be released for retail between mid-October and early November. However, Nintendo could let a large supply of the system build up and allocate more time for software and games development by launching the system in early 2012. Nintendo could also attempt to lower the retail price with lower profit margins to give the system a more alluring price-point.

Even with this abundance of supposed information, all of it is still rumor, and should be handled as such.


Nintendo is still declining to comment on the rumors.

These are getting a whole lot cooler by the second, yet somewhat more ridiculous(especially the controller!)

I'm not complaining one bit, but I do feel they could push to a Quad-core. For the extra oomph and smoothness. Also, RAM is a big deal here. That's what's been bottlenecking the other consoles of this generation. If it has 1GB of ram, which is very doable now, it would severely outperform any console available today.

I agree that it would be fairly simple and a big boost to improve the RAM.

Only thing I'm concerned about... I know this will probably be better than what Microsoft and Sony will offer with their next consoles, but... ouch to 350-400 bucks. I probably won't be able to afford it at launch.

If Nintendo's next console is going for $350/$400, then I wonder how much Sony's and Microsoft's next consoles are going to be......

Damn, I came in here wanting to post this: http://www.joystiq.com/2011/04/25/wii-successor-2012/

Megas beat me. But yeah, it's confirmed now. Not the innards, but the fact that it exists. Let the insane speculation begin.
