AMD has sold Nintendo 50m Wii GPUs

Lotta consoles, lotta chips

Application security programs and practises

AMD today say it has now sent Nintendo a total of 50m 'Hollywood' graphics chips destined to drive the videogames pioneer's Wii console.

The number's no great surprise. Up to the end of December 2008, Nintendo had shipped almost 45m Wiis globally, each of them containing a Hollywood chip.

That's not to say Nintendo has produced 5m more Wiis since then, only that AMD has supplied it with that many GPUs.

AMD said Hollywood - a 90nm custom design created specifically for the Wii - is its best-selling console GPU yet. AMD also makes the 'Xenos' GPU in the Xbox 360, a console that's been mightily outsold by the Wii - so, again, no surprise there.

AMD also produced the GameCube's GPU, back in the days when its graphics division was a separate company, called ATI. ®
