The Nintendo 3DS’ power capabilities range dynamically depending on your source. Some list it as a slight improvement over the current model, and others place it as more powerful even than Nintendo’s home console. According to sources close to IGN, the handheld sports two ARM11 processors, the same processor that fueled various Android, iPhone, and Zune models (in a single capacity).

The report lists the 3DS as including: two 266MHz ARM11 CPUs, a 133MHz GPU, 4MBs of dedicated VRAM, 64mb of RAM, and 1.5GBs of flash storage. For comparison, the original DS ran on two ARM processors (at 67 MHz and 33 MHz) with 4mb of RAM, and the DSi on twice the clock speed at 16mb of RAM with 256mb flash storage. Most PSP models have a clock speed of 333 MHz.
