Nintendo New 3DS Xl – Features
Experience the first console to successfully integrate 3D into gaming without making it seem like a small gimmick. The 3DS takes everything great about the DS. It heavily builds onto them for a fantastic gaming experience. It is one of the most successful consoles that is used and loved to this day. With the 3DS XL, Nintendo packs a more robust processor, more RAM, an analog C-stick, and two additional triggers for an enhanced gaming experience. The XL also features an even larger screen than its predecessor, at an impressive 4.88 inches.
Amazing 3d Capabilities
One of the most prominent features of the console is its ability to display stereoscopic 3D effects. That, too, without using 3D glasses or additional accessories powered by the Nintendo Network. Augmented reality using its 3D cameras and Virtual Console allows you to download and play games originally released on older video game systems.
The main central processing unit is a dual-core ARM11 MPCore-based processor, which is clocked at 266 MHz. One processor core is dedicated to games and applications, while the other is exclusive to the operating system, enabling multitasking and background tasks. These tasks are handled seamlessly in the background during gameplay or while the system is in sleep mode. The system also contains a single-core ARM9-based processor, enabling backward compatibility with both Nintendo DS and DSi titles.
The console features two cameras capable of taking 3D photos and videos, a built-in microphone, and a lithium-ion battery with longevity between 3 and 8 hours, depending on the games you are playing. Also, you have two generous screens, the bottom being a resistive touchscreen. The system also includes 2 GB of flash memory. It can be expanded by another 2 GB through an SD card.
