Komputer Bay 64GB does 89,7 MB/s ...


Recommended Posts

I don't have Andrew's guide, but if you have the latest build it says the recommended card speed.  So pick your aspect ratio, then resolution, and on the bottom of the screen it'll say recommended write speed plus how many frames you can capture.  It's also an estimation based on the last time you recorded at that aspect ratio/resolution. 


You should also try recording a few clips first and let the card warm up.  A lot of times writing for the first 2 min or so will be slow and in the 80-something range.  But after that it will go up to 90+ range.  This is common for all manufacturers, even my expensive Lexars do this too.  So not everything is revealed in the tests.


Last resort exchange the card.  It's a pain in the ass I know, but now I have a working card that does 104 MB/s.  Well worth all the effort.

      Dear forum members.

      I have a problem on how to verify my new Komputerbay 1000x(32GB) cards writespeed.

      I do not have the 5DIII so that I could use the built in benchmark
      but I do have Lexar USB 3 CF card reader and 5DII (it is my understanding that the 5DII is speed limited)

      Testing methodology:
      Lexar USB 3 card reader connected via USB 3 port.
      Software H2testw 1.4 (Which seems to be a reasonable card speed testing program).

      I get only 61.5 MB/s write speed with my Komputer Bay card

      So while I have no way of knowing how high is the Card reader is able to write in the first place
      to know for sure that I'm not limited by the reader.
      Does anyone have the said reader and experience in it's write speed?

      The Lexar card reader product page says it's UDM7. So I suppose the card reader is not at
      it's limit while writing that ~61.5 MB/s

      A secondary observation about SD Komputer Bay SD-cards. I bought Komputer Bay 64GB 600x SD cards.
      The card says 90MB/s read / 40MB/s write speed.
      The above meantioned program (H2testw) gives a write speed of about 32-35MB/s for those. While tested on the Lexar USB3 reader.
      The problem i'm facing with those cards is A dritfwood hacked GH2 says the card is too slow for recording
      at HI mode. The low mode works which is about half of the data rate. Would anyone have any input
      on this problem? I am some what familiar about the GH 2 hacks limitations but I*m quite NOOB. Cosidering the datarate at the HI mode should be inside the 32MB/s range.

      The card testing software if anyone is interested.
