Hate to be the noob with all the questions, but this one may be a little more legitimate? Though I could just be looking into this a little too much I read all the initial posts stating that a higher class card, of better quality, would provide the best experience and speed with flash carts. However, being the minmaxer that I am, I would like to know if a faster card than what I have would truly make a noticeable difference/be worth the cost. Also, since I don't remember reading about it, I wanted to know which statistic matters more when looking for an SD card (IE, Sequential Read/Write, Random 512kb Read/Write, or Random 4k Read/Write). According to a widely used speed testing program, CrystalDiskMark, I currently have an SD Card with the following R/W speeds: The SanDisk Ultra 32GB that I am interested in purchasing, should the difference be worth the $25 price tag, has the following R/W Speeds: Now, it is my understanding that reading is the most important for playing games. In this case the increases are pretty solid with a ~25% increase in Sequential/Random512k speeds and a massive ~100-200% (doubled/tripled) increase in the Random 4k tests. So the question is, Would I see 25% faster load times, or even doubled/tripled if it calculates random access, with this new cards? Also, specifically speaking of the R4i Gold 3DS cart which has recently be given Real-Time Saving with the 1.59+ Kernel.. I've read that a real time save takes 10-15 seconds but have no idea what card speeds this was done with or which speed stat really matters for it.. Has anyone done any testing with this feature to provide any other times for which ever speeds their card is? The new card would seem to work faster with writing when comparing sequential/random 4k.. but it's weird that my card actually has a faster random 512k speed if that is what matters. Thanks for taking the time to read this, I am someone who likes to make informed purchases and hope it's okay to pick peoples brains!
