    Post M33-6 loading speeds

    Just did one round testing, here are my results:

    ISO...: Burnout Legends
    MEMORY STICKS:
    -SONY 1GB
    -SanDisk 1GB
    -PhotoFast CR-5400 (2x 8gb SanDisk Mobile Ultra MicroSDHC)
    FIRMWARE: 5.00 M33-4 and 5.0 M33-6
    {all results are from, the Sony NP9660 ISO mode, and one quick race.}

    Round one of tests are all done with PSP formatting, round two I formatted with a PC using FAT (but i think there the same file system), but anyway.. on with testing!


    M33-4 on the left, M33-6 on the right..



    Round one; FIGHT!(PSP formatted)


    SONY 1GB
    The SONY memory card had very large discrepancies in the data, so i may have messed that one up..

    SanDisk 1GB
    Spoiler for one of the biggest differences with SanDisk 1GB memory stick:

    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08880800 len=0x00020000 (time = 34)----->9
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x088a0800 len=0x00020000 (time = 12)----->11
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x088c0800 len=0x00020000 (time = 250)---->232
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x088e0800 len=0x00020000 (time = 11)----->12
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08900800 len=0x00020000 (time = 259)---->276
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08920800 len=0x00020000 (time = 251)---->258
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08940800 len=0x00020000 (time = 248)---->271
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08960800 len=0x00020000 (time = 274)---->10
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08980800 len=0x00020000 (time = 267)---->247
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x089a0800 len=0x00008800 (time = 249)---->31

    PhotoFast with 2x8GB
    numbers seem about the same.. in terms of load speed


    Round two; BEGIN(PC formatted)


    SONY 1GB
    Relatively the same again..
    Spoiler:

    umd_devctl_read offset=0x088a0800 len=0x00020000 (time = 20)--->21
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x088c0800 len=0x00020000 (time = 19)--->16
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x088e0800 len=0x00020000 (time = 26)--->20
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08900800 len=0x00020000 (time = 18)--->19
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08920800 len=0x00020000 (time = 19)--->32

    SanDisk 1GB
    Data was jumbled at the begging, but at the end I found
    Spoiler:

    umd_devctl_read offset=0x088c0800 len=0x00020000 (time = 261)--->252
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x088e0800 len=0x00020000 (time = 270)--->235
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08900800 len=0x00020000 (time = 267)--->263
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08920800 len=0x00020000 (time = 271)--->275
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08940800 len=0x00020000 (time = 11)---->215
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08960800 len=0x00020000 (time = 251)--->36
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x08980800 len=0x00020000 (time = 32)---->135
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x089a0800 len=0x00008800 (time = 134)-->135
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x063d8000 len=0x00010000 (time = 5)----->4
    umd_devctl_read offset=0x063e8000 len=0x00010000 (time = 5)----->5

    PhotoFast with 2x8GB
    No results, can't be formatted to FAT


    Keep in mind this was only ONE round of testing, not an average of scores.. so this data can be easily disregarded as inaccurate.

    In terms of which format was faster, I found some things loaded faster with PC format, some loaded with PSP format (don't know why.. it just did) so, nothing conclusive.

    I am also interested in weather or not FAT32 would decrease load times for ISO/UMDs.

    Well.. there's my results.. it seems M33-6 is indeed faster in terms of loading
    I also found it interesting that when I compared the Sony to SanDisk, the SanDisk was actually loading a little faster

    I used "Beyond Compare 3" to compare and find the differences.

    My data can be downloaded here.

    Thanks to:
    Dark_AleX for making this great(?) plugin and CFW

    hmm, so there is not much difference at all.

    I cant see any change in xmb file access using fatsmod or 500m336 fix, and I dont even remember what it was like pre-fatsmod.

    mothing scientific about what i did, but i noticed that loading a 4meg snes rom took less time with the speedup enabled than it did with fatsmod and the speedup disabled

    Ok, I just been putting some new wallpapers on my memstick, put 10 on there straight into PSP\Photo.

    Without m33-6fix I can see the loading icon while thumbnails load for about a second.
    With m33-6fix the images in psp\photo are displayed immediately.

    Yeah, I've also found icons show up faster in the games list and ROMs load faster in Snes9x. There's no doubt it's faster.

    Now, if you wanted to make some decent graphs comparing the two, that might be more interesting.

    I don't suppose anyone has tried Daedalus after upgrading, have they? If so, does it get rid of any lag?
