Nintendo’s next handheld, the Nintendo 3DS, will be much more powerful, as it’s hardware specs are a vast improvement over the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DSi. IGN is reporting on these new specs, citing “persons familiar with the hardware who spoke to us under the condition of anonymity,”.
Here are the specs: CPU: 2 x 266MHz ARM11, GPU: PICA200 133MHz GPU by DMP, RAM: 64MB, Video RAM: 4MB, Storage: 1.5GB Flash-based.
In comparison, the original Nintendo DS featured a pair of ARM processors running at 67 MHz and 33 MHz and 4 MB RAM. The DSi had double the CPU clock speed and quadrupled the system’s RAM, plus added 256 MB of flash-based storage.
