    i've owned the r4 & ds for a long time now and there a few times where a game would encounter slowdowns and lag when too many things are happening at once. do roms run better & smoother on the dsi with the new cpu?

    Nope dsi mode hasn't been hacked yet. Try a better microsd card if you want games to lag less.

    No, because all current flashcarts are still running in DS mode. Meaning, none of the upgraded hardware on the DSi are being used.

    Also, if you've actually played the retail carts of some games like GTA:CW, it will also lag when there are lots of stuff on screen. Generally if something lags with the retail cart, it will on a flashcart too no matter how fast your microSD is. There are a couple things you can try to minimize it though:

    1) Ditch the R4 and get a better card
    2) Get a higher class microSD like Class 6.
