Wii U released

The Wii U was the first Nintendo console to support high-definition graphics. The Wii U's primary controller was the Wii U GamePad, which featured an embedded touchscreen. Each software title could be designed to utilize this touchscreen as being supplemental to the main TV, or as the only screen for Off-TV Play. 

The Wii U utilized a custom multi-chip module (MCM) developed by AMD, IBM and Renesas in cooperation with Nintendo. Its MCM combined a central processing unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU), as well as an EEPROM memory controller.The CPU, designed by IBM, consisted of a PowerPC 750-based tri-core processor "Espresso" clocked at 1.24 GHz. It was, at the time, described by IBM as an "all-new, Power-based microprocessor".
