The NES Classic console launches later this month, and review units have already started shipping out to various publications. One reviewer at GameSpot opened up his unit to reveal the motherboard (pictured below) and all the chips that power the unit.

The guys over at Reddit analyzed the chips and came to a conclusion about the specs. Here they are:

  • SoC: Allwinner R16 (4x Cortex A7, Mali400MP2 GPU)
  • RAM: Hynix (256MB DDR3)
  • Flash: Spansion 512MB NAND
  • PMU: AXP223

Which means the NES Classic is way more powerful than the 3DS currently on the market. Which isn’t surprising, since the 3DS was designed years ago. Heck, the NES Mini is more powerful than the Wii…

And as the image below shows, it’s impossible to add any more games to the system because the flash memory is soldered to the motherboard.
