It's been stated that it'll have 1.5GB of data on the system and Japan will get a 2GB SD card.

As for the main system, the DSi memory is virtually cut in half because the OS and other things take up space on the memory, so I suspect the 3DS will actually have about 1GB or a bit less.
At least it comes with an SD card. Let's hope games actually can be run FROM the SD card this time.

It's been confirmed Hardy

@geek-master It's the graphics card (more specifically the graphics processing unit). How is that relevant? lol

@StarFox I somehow expect 3DSWare to be far superior (at least potentially) to anything on DSiWare or WiiWare, considering the capabilities of the system and the lessening of size restrictions. I wouldn't write it off before you see what it eventually has to offer.

does the 3DS have a compact ASUS motherboard with automatic overclocking?

@geek-master The motherboard is obviously custom-built for the device, but I have no idea who the manufacturer is or if it supports automatic overclocking. Probably not? The ability to overclock is unlikely and I really would not recommend forcing it. A handheld should operate at cool temperatures due to its size, build materials and lack of ventilation. I really suggest you leave it running at its normal speed, or you may end up with melted parts/casing, a fried motherboard or burnt fingers during use. The battery life won't last as long, and the device may give up the ghost earlier too.

Er, why are you asking about that anyway? It's a mass-produced consumer electronic device built for specific tested conditions. You're putting your money and warranty at risk if you mess with its internal operations. Homebrew software AFAIK will not be officially supported either.
