    quote from Volumerate:

    New version of R4.

    The only difference for this R4 compares former R4 is the IC is bigger for current one. But factory inform us that the IC will getting improved later.

    Probably just found the R4 packaging and stickers then started slapping them on N5s.

    65USD a pop too.

    DX won't carry them; not unless the ESA has called off its DMCA witch-hunt, which seems unlikely.

    The pictures are from the old one; I've asked Volumerate for some more details and some more recent pictures, and whether they're sourcing these direct from Team R4.

    I'm betting these are the "Upgrade-II" (the supposed fake) version with the same hardware as the n5/e7/"fake R6".

    It's interesting that R4 seem remarkably silent on this matter.

    As I know, there is a fake R4 card going to the market. Please be careful.

    Anyway, as my point of view, DX and volumerate is not a good supplier although their price is cheaper. You can know more about it by their customers' comment of DX's forum. [​IMG]

    I wouldn't recommend getting any kind of flashcart from dx/volume rate UNLESS you know that they are Definitely in stock, I waited a month for my supercard and that was pretty short compared to some of the other poor peeps.

    "The IC is bigger".

    What on earth does this mean?

    Doesn't really answer much, does it? Whilte it's clear that they are gettng these from the same place they got the R4, they still haven't indicated whether that was direct from R4.

    the supplier is the same of fake r4 cards, but now is going to produce these card that use 2 IC , one smaller and one bigger and can use the original R4 card kernel . But price is relative high.
