Performance Results

ATTO Disk Benchmark

64GB SanDisk Extreme microSDXC manages to get 85.87MB/s reading and 61.15MB/s writing in sequentially on CrystalDiskMark. ATTO Disk Benchmark is giving similar result too.

SD Tools
A1 SD Bench

How does 64GB SanDisk Extreme microSDXC perform on smartphone? Let’s take Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9500 as benchmark tool. It gets 37.8MB/s reading and 25.7MB/s writing speed on SD Tools. 32.76MB/s read and 21.38MB/s write speed on A1 SD Bench. Slower compare to PC benchmarks because Galaxy S4 does not support UHS-I standard. But it is still the fastest 64GB microSDXC that I have tested on Galaxy S4. Well done, SanDisk… With 64GB capacity, you will have plenty of disk space to store videos, photos, music and games on your smartphone and tablet.

    Actually, SanDisk released an even faster version, Extreme Pro, with read max 95, write max 90 MB/s, tho the sizes are 8 and 16 GB currently, and the prices are usual for new cards, not that the Extreme version alone is cheap. Right now Ultra version is most sensible.. Tho I wonder where they dropped the 64 GB version…

    • Yup, can’t wait for 64GB model to come out. πŸ˜‰

        It will surely take a while for them to do that, a quarter minimum perhaps, just like always πŸ˜‰ For the waiting, hopefully they’ll make it for Christmas πŸ˜‰

    hi jayce

    though this question of mine does not belong in here but I am too curious to find your views to get to an appropriate site….

    you have s4 now for many months…..which in your view is the best smart phone….currently in the market…..s4, htc butterfly s or sony xperia z ultra ???
    if i m missing out any in the list ….please guide me to that one too….I am going to buy a new one in a month or so….thanks for your advice and sorry again for posting this at wrong place….

    • Hi farhan, I prefer Galaxy S4 over HTC Butterfly s. Sony Xperia Z Ultra is way too big for me. You can wait for Galaxy Note 3 if you prefer big screen.

  • farhan

    thank you so much jayce.

    hi… jayceooi please give me best data transfer software for windows 7

    Hi, there. May I know what kind of SD card reader to you use to test the speed of the SD card as normally laptop build-in SD card reader can’t support that high speed shown above. Did you use a USB3.0-to-SD card reader to test out?

    • Yes, I am using Transcend USB 3.0 card reader.

    sandisk extreme and sandisk extreme plus, can i know what is the difference?

    • Extreme Plus is faster.

      • SLR

        Which one would be best for note 3?

        • SLR

          hi Jayce, as i saw in sandisk website is shows “SANDISK EXTREME PLUS IS 80MB READ AND 50MB WRITE” AND “SANDISK EXTREME IS 45MB READ AND 45MB WRITE”? really confuse about it

          • There is no Extreme Plus when I wrote this review. Extreme Plus is actually this Extreme version. Extreme is newer but slower version.

        • Extreme Plus of course.

          • SLR

            i saw certain website they stating Sandisk brand not good and files are being corrupted and for samsung hp, they recommend samsung memory card itself for faster and safer. On your point of view, what do you think about it?

            • I don’t have issue on both Samsung and SanDisk cards that I have. SanDisk offers lifetime warranty while Samsung provide 10 years only. so I will go for SanDisk if speed is faster.
