    i am gonna buy a 64gb MicroSD card to use with sd2vita. I don't want to waste any money buying high spec cards if the vita does not take advantage of it. So my question is what is the recomended Spec I need Class 10, U1, U3, write speed etc

    Thanks in advance

    I'd say any good brand card will work regardless of speed.
    I haven't done any tests myself, but I remember someone checked speeds and it was like, 8MB/sec.

    Ninja edit: You want Class 10 probably, don't need to worry about UHS.
    Checked SD class speeds, class 2/4/6/10 is 2MB/4MB/6MB/10MB transfer speeds.

    It doesn't matter if the Vita can't use the extra speed you will appreciate it when copying games onto it from PC.

    Please somebody can test the save state (and load) function in pcsx-r core (retroarch) with MicroSD? I want to know if is better or equal the normal vita memory card (how many time require, and if game lag or slowdown during the savestate), before buying it one
