32 GB UHS-1 Class 10 45MB/Sec SDHC SanDisk Extreme vs SanDisk Extreme Pro Memory Cards

SanDisk Extreme SDHC UHS-1 Memory Card, 45MB/S, 45 MB/SecFrequent readers will know that we tested the SanDisk SDHC Extreme Pro 45MB/sec UHS-1 (June 13, 2012 $74.95 at Amazon) cards versus the more expensive “higher performance” 8 GB Delkin Elite 633x 95MB/Sec UHS Speed Class 1 in the Nikon D7000.

What we had found was that there were no performance differences between the Delkin and the SanDisk Extreme Pro, in the D7000, even though technically, the Delkin had a higher read/write speed rating, 45 vs 95 MB/Sec respectively.

Well, now there is the SanDisk SDHC Extreme 45MB/sec UHS-1 Memory Card (June 13, 2012 $37.17 at Amazon), which has the same speed rating at the SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1.

Notice… the Extreme is half the price of the Extreme Pro…5MB/Sec memory Card ….

Figured it’s worth test on the new cards, which are half the price of the older cards ??

Long story short, with from what I can tell, both these Extreme and Extreme Pro Cards have exactly the same performance ratings …

So, how did they fare in the performance testing?

RESULTS ARE IDENTICAL TO THE OTHER UHS-1 CARDS TESTED !!!

Pictures of the package are included… From the writing on the packaging, which is a real eye chart, I really can’t tell why the words “Pro” make one item worth twice the second. They both seem to otherwise have the same jargon…
