3DS tech specs leaked?

Getting inside Nintendo's upcoming handheld

Nintendo 3DS tech specs have reportedly leaked onto the internet - giving us a taste of just what we're going to be dealing with when the 3D handheld hits shelves.

The 3DS sports two 266MHz ARM11 CPUs, along with a 133MHz GPU, 4MBs of dedicated VRAM, 64MBs of RAM, and 1.5GBs of flash storage.


That chunky bit of memory is a big improvement on the measly 256MBs we're used to on the DSi.

If you need ever more space though, the drive can be expanded using the 3DS' SD card slot.

This is all according to IGN, which obtained the info from "persons familiar with the hardware who spoke under the condition of anonymity". recently listed blue, black and red versions of the 3DS for £199.99.

Of course, none of the above is anything like official yet - although a release date announcement from Nintendo is due a week today (September 29).
