    Default Cartridge to console bandwidth

    Hi everyone.
    Reading on SEGA Retro about the cartridges, is reported:

    https://segaretro.org/Mega_Drive_cartridges

    "Cartridge ROM bandwidth: 10 MB/s (most cartridges), 15.20097815.340906 MB/s (some cartridges)"

    And I was curious to understand HOW some cartridges could have such higher bandwidth.
    Anyone know?

    See right above it:

    Cartridge ROM chips: 16‑bit[5]

    Most cartridges: MROM, 5 MHz, 200 ns cycles[6][7][8]
    Some cartridges: MROM/EPROM, 7.670453 MHz (NTSC), 7.600489 MHz (PAL), 130131 ns cycles[7][4][9]
