So without further ado, here is a look at the polysilicon die photo of the GPU from the Nintendo Wii U. We arenít going to annotate the blocks because several people on that board (and probably elsewhere) have already been volunteering to take on the task. After all, we are giving away the die image, so we should let them do their own reverse engineering annotation. The image below is only a thumbnail and you can click on it to get one that is higher resolution.

Don't ask me yet what the image means, I haven't figured it out. It's not at all what anyone was expecting to see, so it will take a little time to figure out. Once the thread on GAF goes up to discuss it, I'll edit this to include a link to it.

EDIT: Here's the discussion thread: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?p=47300747#post47300747
