I now learned a lot about the X16 and am almost finished with Brixx. So I'm thinking about my next project, but I have a concern here:
How fast will SD card access be on "real" hardware?
I'm now using the emulator and loading assets is pretty much instant. It's for example fast enough to load music in 8kB chunks into high-ram while playing. No need to load them up front. Loading into VRAM is the same. I wonder if on real hardware you could for example watch graphics to be loaded?
As I understand the VERA hardware is handling the SD card access, right? What is the bandwidth we can expect for VRAM and high RAM (if different)?
