We spent a load of cash making Chromium work fast.
So do other browsers using chromium benefit from that or no?

Re: Still confused, what is better for my SD card?

Purposely increasing writes would only degrade the card faster, no? If you only have a few GB in use there is plenty of over-provisioning available. If you only have few GB of space left, then you should be using a larger SD card for your purpose. :mrgreen:

Re: Fastest Micro SD card for Pi 4? Does it support XC U3?

If it is indeed the controller. However, one would think it has to be higher spec memory first, which is faster in any case, removing at least one bottleneck. The rated specifications for A2 cards are assuming you have those extra commands. If you don't then they can actually perform worse. Some te...

ok, here are the results with the new Rpi4 with a 64gig Sandick A2 U3 V30 micro SD card
That's very interesting. Could you decipher the results there for me?
How many IOPS or 4K random did you get on the Pi 4 without overclocking.

And please stop saying Sandick. :lol:

Re: Fastest Micro SD card for Pi 4? Does it support XC U3?

I don't think that's true. A1 or A2 is just a new label that gives you an idea about the minimum random read/write performance to be expected of the flash memory used in the card. Beyond that it's just a matter of the device's controller being fast enough to make use of it. No. There is a differenc...

Re: Fastest Micro SD card for Pi 4? Does it support XC U3?

I wouldn't read too much into speed labels, and try to find reviews that actually put cards to the test with a benchmark, usually CrystalDiskMark. Of course then you won't know exactly how the Pi will handle it, but if the performance is not there in the first place it's no use trying. When the 4K w...
