128GB Memory card

Post by hulkk03 » Thu Oct 03, 2019 10:45 pm

I been thinking about getting 128GB memory card microSD and wanting to add few more games. I'm wondering, it's fast as the 64GB microSD card or slower? Just want to know how the performance compare to 64GB card. Thanks.

The performance should be the same if the SD cards are rated the same. There may be some variation between different brands etc. I don't remember noticing any speed difference in use when I tried 128gig.

Burning and backing up the SD card is a different story though as that's size and speed related. In the end I found 128gig was too big for backups for me personally as it took too much time and disk space.

Ah, then I guess I should stick with 64GB. My 64GB SD card just recently corrupt. I nuke and burn my card off from my backup.

Thanks again :)

What SD card brands are you guys sporting? I had no idea brands could make a difference in speed.

I’m using both Samsung and SanDiskUltra. No issues with either and both seem fast. There are different classes however:

Here’s an article I read to help me choose. Good luck all!
