MasterDrive Properties

Above is a picture of the properties of the MasterDrive. One interesting thing of note is that the firmware is upgradeable for the drive. Could this mean that the algorithm that controls the writing of the drive to prevent wear could be upgraded? Could the performance be upgraded as well?

Now lets move on to the benchmarks!
