I know the lesser resolution on the 3DS means the games aren't 100% comparable, but from a technical standpoint how powerful is the 3DS?

I've recently seen people saying N64, Gamecube, Wii, PS2, etc. It just got me thinking, but after looking at the specs I can't make heads or tails deciding which system it compares the most to.

Anybody know?

It's roughly comparable to the Wii.

I tried but couldn't find anything. :( Maybe I'm 'searching' wrong.

Look at the games, it's obviously GameCube level.. Hardly any game runs at 60 fps but most Wii games do.

It's basically a Wii with more RAM and mysteriously worse looking games.

It's the crappy resolution screen.
