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.

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.
