Wii HW architecture diagram

June 15th, 2008 by bushing · 6 Comments

Inspired by henke37’s idea of making a diagram that shows how the different processors on the Wii relate to each other, I took a stab at it.  I got a little carried away I guess.

I can’t promise everything here is right — there are just too many things we don’t know, and even some of the things we do know, we don’t all agree on.    So, here’s my first attempt at summing it all up:

    I really like it. But there is just one thing that makes you wonder, what is the unmarked big gray block in the photo? The GPU? That’s something to fix in the next version.

    I may not have the no how to understand all of this, but nonetheless…fascinating. 🙂

    @Nuke: Hai!

    @Henke37: The unmarked gray block is everything inside of the blue box that is not inside the purple box or orange box. (Starlet, GPU, memory bridge, etc…)
