Following Nintendo's announcement of the Wii U today, AMD and IBM have issued announcements of their own, providing a few additional insights into the system's technology.

IBM said that it has developed a Power-based CPU for the system. The CPU will be produced using 45 nanometer technology at IBM's manufacturing facility in East Fishkill, N.Y.. You can read IBM's press release here.

For the system's graphics, AMD is readying a custom Radeon HD GPU. You can read AMD's press release here.
