No I dont think so.  The 3DS is kinda like DS version 1.5 with 3D.

The 3DS could push mid level Wii graphics judging from the games announced.

Roughly, yes, although a direct comparison is unfair.

Probably now.

A handheld can never be as powerful as a console.

That's what I think.

graphically speaking, no. But graphics should never be the only thing you use to determine what to buy. The 3ds is a fun system with a library that's going to be quite extensive

Wii:
CPU: IBM Broadway 729MHz
GPU: ATI Hollywood 243MHz
RAM: 512 MB

3DS:
CPU: 2 x 266MHz ARM11
GPU: PICA200 133MHz GPU by DMP
RAM: 64MB

In terms of raw power, no. However the hardware is designed to do something completely different than the Wii.

Overall, it is an impressive piece of hardware..... that's what she said.

No, while it is farily powerfull, it is not as powerfull as the wii, its much smaller and you couldnt fit all the chips needed to be as powerfull.
