Talking about MAME ports to systems that require jailbreaking and potentially linking with license incompatible libraries isn't really a valid subject of conversation here.

but apparently the original 3DS used a 268Mhz processor, and the new one uses a 804Mhz processor. With those speeds (especially the original model) even running a lot of the OLD versions people run on hardware is a bad idea, you're not going to get authentic emulation at those clock speeds. It's not really hardware that is well suited to running emulators and I imagine anybody with enough skill to port them realises that before they even start.

I definitely don't recommend MAME on that hardware, as there's no way it could run a current version, and the old versions are just plain bad.
