Buying a new sd card for the G5A - Read and write speed
« on: May 15, 2014, 02:16:25 am »
Hi everyone, i could've created this topic at the android section, but since it's specifically for the G5A i think this would be the better place. 64gb is probably the better size for what i want to play, class 10 also. But then i found these two at ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SanDisk-Mobile-Ultra-30MB-s-64GB-64G-microSDXC-micro-SDXC-micro-SD-Class-10-Bulk-/131188017578?pt=Digital_Camera_Memory_Cards&hash=item1e8b6a49aa

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Samsung-64GB-64G-microSDXC-micro-SDXC-micro-SD-Card-Class-10-Pro-70mb-s-Bulk-/310909132695?pt=Digital_Camera_Memory_Cards&hash=item4863a0df97

Same size, class 10, but then the samsung can read up to 70mb/s while the sandisk only 30mb/s. I don't know if this can have some sort of impact at the performance of the device, so what's the better choice for me? I'm going to play psx isos, and eventually, depending on performance, also dreamcast isos. Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I would stick to cheaper card, especially when you primarily want to play emulators.

Consider that original PSX have 2X CD drive (which is 300KBps) and Dreamcasts GD-ROM have 12x speed

That expensive PRO card is primarily for capturing FullHD video in higher framerates, imho.

Both cards should be fine. I have a Sandisk 64GB class 10 and no problems so far.

Yes both are fine, but youll be paying 30 bucks for speed advantage that youll probably never use.
