    Both have RTS, it's a label change. The "RTS" one is most likely the latest hardware, though.

    One's inner self
    the 4.5 & RTS are exactly the same card, they just supplied newer stickers for the 4.5 cards
    ive spoken to the team on this matter, so even if you have a 4.5 its have no different internals

    Just received my R4i gold 3ds RTS today in the mail. I'll write up my review of it in the morning and post it. Already have a few pros and cons of it and I've only had it for about 4 hours.

    And I'm new to the DS cart world and even after a lot of Googling and searching within this site - I STILL cannot figure out what the difference is between:

    1. R4i-SDHC 3DS RTS for Nintendo3DS - $13.99: http://nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=146
    2. R4i GOLD 3DS RTS for Nintendo 3DS - $15.99: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
    Are they both made by the same company? The kernel/firmware support site is different for the two companies so they don't appear to be the same. Does one card have more features than the other card? Is one card more frequently updated than another card?
    I'd really appreciate it if anyone can help me understand what the difference is between these two cards.

    They're not the same, one team is known to provide updates when possible, the other abandons their carts all the time to make you buy new ones.

    AH - THAT'S the page/run-down/review I've been slogging away trying to find. Thanks SO much for the info. You answered all of my questions and then some and I finally ordered a couple of carts from zhuzhu:

    http://www.zhuzhuchina.com/store/ds...ds_cn__3ds_6_0_compatible_wood_rev_c_rts.html

    I only needed two, but got three as the third netted me free shipping, so I saved $4 - thus I only spent and extra $8. Insurance against DOA's and loss/breakage and a likely 3 week shipping delay. I couldn't justify the extra spend on the Supercard DSTwo, especially when I need two of them and don't see using any of the extra features. Thanks also for the heads up on *meh* emulation on the DSi/3DS with these carts.

    Seriously - thanks so much for the info.

    Have a great one.
