    The N3DS CPU has two extra cores (instead of the O3DS' two), some L2 cache (O3DS has none), and runs at 804MHz instead of 268.

    What size sd card does he have? That can lead to slow downs but norm only booting up

    That's a good point. 128GB cards can slow things down tremendously (which is why I went with 64, aside from cost reasons).

    Ya when I saw they could slow it down and some people had issues with needing to keep the 128gb at least half full I went with a 64gb. It is a tad slower than my 16gb I did have but not too bad
