    I have a 8Gb one, but many games load slower than in my 2Gb, while some others load the same way.
    What's the catch?

    Probably a different class of drive, meaning it has a different maximum transfer speed.

    Could you point me some benchmark tool to take a look at that?
    This 8Gb was supposed to be Class 4.

    My kingston seems to have this amazingly slow write speeds in 0.5 and 1KB
    Maybe that's why some games are loading pretty slow, while others are really fast, independent
    of when they were released and stuff. It's not infolib stuff (Also all .sav creating times are slow)

    That could be the issue.

    This kind of test is nothing...
    The only one important test, is the homebrew from supercard!!!

    The access time is most important than the speed data transfer!!!

    8GB, i thins it's enough... More, i dont know why it will be usefull

    Which homebrew, bitonio?

    I guess either way there's no workaround this issue.
    I think it's a hardware issue of the card...

    What matters is READ SPEED, which is separate from the class.

    I'm going to make a little guide on speed testing cards, as soon as concrete info is available.

    Read speed isn't that important. Most cards have at least decent read speed.

    Try the homebrew from supercard "speed test" and you'll see...

    I tested everything is possible to test in microSD world...

    Size, speed, access, everything...

    You can have a microSD with 17MB/S read speed and a very bad access time = bad microSD for flashcard use !!!

    Access time is latency, that's what I'm referring to.

    I'm not talking just supercard, I'm talking a universal test of microSD cards.

    I'm waiting on more info.
