When I run LXDE on a Kingston 16 GB flash drive there is almost
no discernable difference in operation from running it on my
When I run LXDE on the same model flash drive but only 8 GB capacity
a definite slowdown is observed.
Speed tests on both are over 18 MB/second read speed.
Is there a way to determine the drive cache size ? Kingston spec sheet
doesn't give that info. If the 16 GB has a 64k cache and the 8 GB
only has a 8k cache, I'd have to place my bet that's the reason. I've
read where flash drive caches were small, but I can't find the info today
and I'm trying to find out the reason for this major difference in operation
performance. The 16 GB's are running fine, even with KDE, but of course,
they cost twice as much.
