The graphics engine is also said to be vastly improved over the GameCube.
Sporting graphics which in actual play are “two to three times more powerful than GameCube,” according to Nintendo, the Revolution is already anxiously awaited by fans. In contrast, Microsoft repots the Xbox 360 having 13-15 times more powerful graphics processing than the original Xbox, and the PlayStation3 is reported to be approximately 35 times more powerful than the PlayStation2. However, these numbers typically reflect polygon display numbers in a testing environment and are not actually attainable in true gameplay.

Nintendo cited such examples as Donkey Kong and Super Mario Sunshine, which suggests that Revolutionaries could have access to games for all the publisher's previous consoles.
