    Hey. I was just reading around some and found out that the Adata super microsd cards are the only other cards, besides the Kingmax microsd, which use SLC-Single Level Cell to achieve faster performance.

    I read on GBAtemp that Danny, from M3, recommended a Kingmax or PNY microsd to ensure Castlevania POR runs smoothly. I couldn't find out anything about PNY card speeds but the Kingmax is suppose to be 10.5MB/s Max read and 8.9MB/s Max write.

    Any Adata super owners care to try running some benches or tell us about POR crashing or not?

    Sidenote, someone should compile a list of microsd cards and info from users such as speeds, made in, crashing or slowdowns in games.


    Edit: Anybody? If anyone with an Adata super card tells me POR works perfectly, I'm just going to buy it this minute...

    Edit: F* it. I just ordered a Ritek Ridata 1GB from meritline. They're suppose to be 115x high speed cards so we'll see.

    Nope, A-data 1GB or Higher doesnt work with it. But supposedly the 512MB works. KingMAX, PNY, Kingston (Made In Japan), Toshiba(Made IN Japan) Cards are the ones that work with it.

    Here's some benches using the long test on HDTach.

    Castlevania DoS intro doesn't lag.

    edit: Tried PoR, it freezes when I spam start at Wind [​IMG]

    comapro, mind posting in my MicroSD info thread? It'd be good to get some more info to make the list bigger.
