It still fucking pisses me the hell off that nintardo put a micro sd card slot instead of a full sized SD card when the is clearly 3x larger than the Nintendo 3ds which still has an SD card slot. An SD card is way more reliable because of its full sized nand chips and controller that don't heat up as bad as well.

So a problem that i've run into a few times with SD cards and mobile is that mobile devices sometimes won't work with certain SD cards. I'm sure there's a reason for this but not sure what it is. While I suspect that 'gaming' title is just BS, but I wonder if part of the reason for naming it that is to make sure people know itll work with mobile gaming devices. Probably not though.

In defense of the manufacturer, I would say it's at least as legitimate to talk about a faster-than-usual "gaming" SD card as it is to talk about overclocked "gaming" memory. After all, everyone knows it's basically just a buzzword to highlight the high-end tech, and that cheaper stuff works just as well for gaming on a budget. Another good point I'd like to make is that Nintendo partnered with one of HyperX's competitors to make officially-licensed Nintendo Switch microSD cards, which are far from being remarkable in any way. Since they don't have a license themselves, how do you expect them to make sure people know their SD cards work with the Switch aside from slapping "gaming" on it in the face of a tactic like that (which is arguably worse because it could mislead someone into thinking only licensed cards work in the Switch)? Marketing has always been largely disconnected with underlying technology. I mean, hard drives are mislabeled with decimal gigabytes rather than binary gibibytes. A Xeon is labeled a "Workstation" processor even though you can run Microsoft Office or a PC game on it just fine. Windows 10 "Pro" has some features that would be relevant to home users in edge cases. Words like "Workstation" "Professional" "Gaming" "Home," and the rest are more about targeting a particular segment for marketing purposes than an explanation of what the product's technical merits are.
