Nintendo 3DS Leaked Specs Include Twin CPUs

September 22, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Just hours ago, we had reported about a tweet posted by a developer which revealed the launch date of the Nintendo 3DS. Now the gaming handheld is in the news again, because the specs of the much-anticipated console have been leaked online.

Sources revealed to IGN that the Nintendo 3DS will be coming equipped with two 266MHz ARM11 CPUs and a 133MHz GPU. It will also feature 4MB of dedicated VRAM, 64MB of RAM and 1.5GB of flash storage.

DMP had confirmed, back in June, that 3DS’ GPU will be its PICA200 which features a maximum processing speed of roughly 200MHz. The information from IGN suggests that Nintendo has scaled it back a bit for the 3DS.

The original Nintendo DS came with a pair of ARM processors running at 67 MHz and 33 MHz and 4 MB RAM. The Nintendo DSi had double the CPU clock speed, quadrupled the system’s RAM and added 256 MB of flash-based storage.

It is not certain whether the leaked information is giving us the correct specifications. Nintendo has also not responded to requests for a comment on the matter. We will probably have to wait a little while longer to know for certain about what the console is coming with.
