Good job too I guess, as good luck trying to find a heatsink short enough to fit in a ~10mm thin case. ARM chip power consumption is generally measured in hundreds of milliwats, whereas those newer Intel desktop chips generally chomp through tens of watts.
It's also worth mentioning that while we're talking about chip die size, the only reason the PC CPU you buy is as big as it is is to fit all the pins on the bottom. The actual CPU die on there is quite a lot smaller.
The Wii U, of course, uses an IBM POWER chip along the lines of what's in most modern consoles, and that does normally need some sort of cooling solution like the fairly chunky heatsink covering the CPU and GPU in the Wii U.
Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!
