eMMC Supported?
« on: March 15, 2023, 07:00:46 pm »
Hi

There was a question the OS2World Discord Chat asking of eMMC was supported on any of the OS/2 distributions.

For what I know no, I haven't get report about eMMC being supported.  The only implementation of eMMC that I'm aware of is for SD card readers on laptops and I haven't get any report of it working. Any other use?

For what I have read eMMC is slower than NVMe and it seems that the laptop market is more in favor of  NVMe these days, and they even seems to be removing the SD card slots from laptops.
But what do you think?

Regards

eMMC is not supported best I can tell. AHCI and NVMe is supported, eMMC not.
