The Wii U GPU was another item brought up by an investor at Nintendo's financial results briefing earlier this week.

Developers have praised Wii U's memory in the past, but some have wondered if the console's architecture focuses too much on GPU. Shigeru Miyamoto, Satoru Iwata, and Genyo Takeda all responded to this topic at the Q&A session of Nintendo's investors meeting.

Takeda's comments were, perhaps, most enlightening. He admitted that the GPU is "more pronounced" than the Wii U's CPU, but said those who claim the CPU is weak are incorrect.

Read on below for the full comments from Miyamoto, Iwata, and Takeda.
