Nintendo 3DS hardware specs revealed?

Good morning everyone! Time for a little update with Nintendo's upcoming handheld, the 3DS. So what's inside the innards of the upcoming Nintendo 3DS? Well, if sources close to IGN is to be believed, the upcoming 3D-enabled handheld is one mighty little device. According to IGN, the 3DS will boast not one, but two 266MHz ARM11 CPUs, a 133MHz GPU, 4MBs of dedicated VRAM, 64MBs of RAM and 1.5GBs of flash storage. While the source wasn't able to provide any other details of the ARM11 processors the 3DS will feature, the site points out that early iPhone models as well as current gen Microsoft Zunes and other Android smartphones also used the ARM11 processor. The site added:
"As we learned in June, the 3DS' GPU has been named DMP's PICA200, which features a maximum processing speed of roughly 200MHz, though it seems Nintendo is scaling it back a bit for use in the 3DS. Numerous developers working on software for the platform have likened its graphical capabilities to current-generation consoles like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, albeit on smaller, lower-resolution screens."

"The handheld will also have substantially larger storage capacity than preceding models, jumping from only 256MBs on the DSI to 1.5GBs of flash memory on the 3DS. The total drive space can, of course, be expanded using the 3DS' SD card slot." 

Here's just some of the games and franchises announced by Nintendo and it's 3rd part friends.
