Introduction

Exceria is the name Toshiba chose for their high-performance memory cards. Of all the Exceria card varieties, the Exceria Pro is the fastest. This Exceria Pro 1066x CompactFlash card supports suppoorts UDMA-7 and offers up to 160MB/s read speed and 150MB/s write speed according to Toshiba. It also has the VPG-65 designation, meaning that is supports at least 65MB/s continuous recording to support 4K and HD video. The Exceria Pro 1066x is offered in 16, 32 and 64GB capacities. The 64GB capacity card is tested here.

Performance

The Exceria Pro 64GB was tested in a variety of USB 3.0 card readers. The highest read speed was found in the Kingston FCR-HS4, where it measured 151.3 MB/s sequential read speed. The write speed was highest in the Lexar Professional Workflow CFR1 CompactFlash Reader, with a maximum 144.5 MB/s sequential write speed. Both speeds were near the cliams made by Toshiba, however the 32GB version of the same card had slightly higher benchmarks.
