    Do you think the dsi is more capable of more emu's than the ds with the 2x faster cpu and 4x extra ram?

    Probably. AFAIK DSi Mode is barely hacked and we have limited access. There are DSi mode carts out but those are only for a few DSi-enhanced games and that's about it.

    Yes it is, and there's a few emulators that run on it for extra speed/power.

    Isn't that just using Sudokuhax or am I way out of the DSi loop?

    The CycloDS iEvolution is a DSi-mode cart.

    Knew that, just didn't know how many emulators were made specifically for the DSi. Well OP you got your answer.

    Well there's only a few I think.

    Most people don't bother, since the improvement isn't as good as you'd think since the original DS's specs were so weak to begin with. A PSP still beats the DS all-around for emulation so it's not like people are rushing to get an iEvo.

    There's quite a few emulators and stuff that work better/faster in DSi mode.
    A2600
    A5200
    A7800
    DSx86
    cQuake
    PokeMini
    msxDS
    Doom
    Hexen

    ..and i dunno if they run better but there's
    nesDS
    DSCraft
    copper's Arcade Emus (1942, Bombjack, etc)
    most of Jayenkai's games work in DSi mode also.

    Apparently, iEvo adds a compatibility layer that lets homebrew run in DSi mode.
    For example, pressing L in Lameboy speeds the game up more than in DS mode.

    I don't think an SNES emulator has been enabled in DSi-mode.
