The only relevant thing that varies from SD card to SD card is
the size of the erase block. Any re-mapping SDs (and
most SSDs) do are at the erase block level.
leveling algorithms vary -- but as far as I know, the majority are
still based around the erase block. (e.g.: When a group of sectors
written are smaller than the size of an erase block, the remaining
sectors are read from the erase block, combined with the new data, and
then written to a free block with the lowest amount of writes.)I'm interested in seeing an SD card that remaps at a finer grain than
its erase block.
