Next Wii to possibly use Intel processor

The long rumored and denied next-generation Nintendo Wii HD may get a new processor from Intel, in the form of its Larrabee graphics platform, according to reports from Japan. The multi-core chip is suitable to both general and graphics processing, which is ideal for use in gaming consoles. Just yesterday it has also been rumored to be a candidate for use in Sony's PS3 replacement.

No other details regarding the future of the game consoles and what they may be powered by have been leaked, but the actual products are still some years off. The next-gen Wii, dubbed Wii HD for its presumed abilities to improve on graphics performance, may be the first to come on the market given slumping sales of the current model. [via Impress]
