Hi !

It's been 3 month that 3DS was released, and nobody could confirm or deny the rumored IGN specs ?
IGN told there's 2xARM11 at 266mhz, 64mo of ram and Pica200 at 133 mhz but...
I wonder if these specs are true, because now we know that in fact, it's 128mo of FCRAM instead of 64mo of ram.
So IGN was wrong about it, but could they've been wrong about the CPU and the GPU frequency ?
I mean, FCRAM is a fast memory, so could the ARM11 handle that type of memory ?
Or maybe the 3DS has a Cortex A5 dual core that could handle that memory ?
About the Pica200, any news about the frequency ?



Sorry for my weird english.

As I've written in another post, these specs are believable, but not confirmed. Ripping 3DS open does not help as CPU & GPU are put on one custom chip labeled "CPU CTR Nintendo ARM" - and that's it... I guess only people who bought 3DS development units know for sure, but they have to keep quiet having signed NDA.

All specs you can find in the internet are rumors, including those from 3dbrew and other Wikis. Nothing has been confirmed yet. Talk about hacking the 3DS, lol.
