Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about Memory Card Hi-Speed 300X SDHC Genuine Sandisk Extreme 32GB Class 10 (Genuine SanDisk Extreme SDHC 300X High-Speed Memory Card (32GB / Class 10)) I gained na DX – DealExtreme, and whose purchase has been reported in a previous article.
This Memory Card Hi-Speed 300X SDHC Genuine Sandisk Extreme 32GB Class 10 was acquired apra be used in my SD2SNES, o flashcart do meu Super Nintendo. The 32GB is enough to put all the Super Nintendo ROMs, both 16,5GB of Goodgen collection, as the collection of 4,84GB No-Intro. I left the two collections, No-Intro to use on a daily basis and the Goodgen when you want some nontraditional ROM specific (hacks and afins).
For example, if I want to play Mario Paint, have to appeal to a hack which allows me to use or traditional controller, for I have the mouse Super Nintendo and the ROM of the original cartridge only accepts the mouse. And so I played the Mario Paint in my childhood, they never had the mouse, but the rental cartridge was already a version hackeada. This was just one example that I remembered now, but there must be other situations where it is good to use a hack. Mas no dia a dia, the group's philosophy No-Intro is correct, just the official version of each region. Possible official variants are interesting, but overdumps certainly not.
The Memory Card Hi-Speed 300X SDHC Genuine Sandisk Extreme 32GB Class 10 It came in perfect condition, in plastic do estojinho, which in turn was in the cardboard box. It looks really legitimate.
Tests were made with CrystalDiskMark and H2testw and the results can be seen in screenshots. The maximum speed was around 20MB / s. The maximum rated speed is 45MB / s, but to reach it a reader compatible with UHS-1 cards and USB would be necessary 3.0, that is not the case with my, then everything is as expected. On SD2SNES It does not make much difference to card speed to play traditional games, because the load is virtually instantaneous. Only on the first run is that it takes a while to be done the index of games available at SD, but from there it is all virtually instantaneously.
But a quick card makes all the difference to play homebrew using the MSU-1 (Media Streaming Unit Revision 1), which is a special Super Nintendo chip, just like the Super FX and others used in official matches. The difference is that this chip is not official, but it is properly emulated by SD2SNES. With him the Super Nintendo is able to access 4 gigabytes of data in a single stream. Thus, a Super Nintendo without modification can play videos full-motion and music with CD quality. Basically, the MSU-1 is what the Super Nintendo would your CD-ROM drive, if it had been launched.
The game Road Blaster It was ported to the Super Nintendo thanks to MSU-1. To play it you need a fast SD card, otherwise the streaming chokes. With the Memory Card Hi-Speed 300X SDHC Genuine Sandisk Extreme 32GB Class 10 on the SD2SNES, the Super Road Blaster worked perfectly, without choking in the video or sound. I have not tested other homebrew using MSU-1, but I think it should also work. It's pretty cool this feature to get an idea of what would have been the Super Nintendo CD-ROM, if Nintendo and Sony had not had that “tiff”.
And I'm ending here the article on Memory Card Hi-Speed 300X SDHC Genuine Sandisk Extreme 32GB Class 10 (Genuine SanDisk Extreme SDHC 300X High-Speed Memory Card (32GB / Class 10)) with a positive recommendation.
