Exactly, FAT updates, which require additional transactions are the problem, not the write speed. Additionally the stick may need additional time to handle internal wearing issues. Don’t forget that these types of Flash Drives (and SSDs as well) use NAND flashes which degrade over time and therefore needs some special care to maintain integrity. Contrary to FAT updates this is totally undeterministic. This is not critical for regular use, but may hit you in realtime applications like audio streaming.
