System-on-chip used Broadcom BCM2837

However the Raspberry PI is like a Pentium II and III considered the CPU.
The GPU is like Xbox 2001, which pretty good.
The raspberry PI III model B is barely capable to play well the GBA, e.g. Baldur gates.

N64 without overclocking is not possible.
CPU 64-bit NEC VR4300 @ 93.75 MHz
Memory 4 MB Rambus RDRAM (8 MB with Expansion Pak)
Storage 64 MB Game Pak
What*s going on? The specs of N64 was not terrible, compared to the specs of RPI III model B.
