SanDisk Extreme Plus 90MB/s U3 V30 64GB SDXC Memory Card Review

SanDisk Extreme Plus 90MB/s U3 V30 64GB SDXC Memory Card

Introduction

The SanDisk Extreme Plus 90MB/s U3 V30 card offers a write speed boost over the regular Extreme 90MB/s card. The read speed is the same 90MB/s as quoted by SanDisk. However, the Plus improves the write speed to 60MB/s compared with the non-Plus' 40MB/s. The Extreme Plus is offered in 32 and 64GB capacities. The 64GB SDXC card model SDSDXWF-064G-ANCIN and UPC 619659147259 is tested in this review.

The Extreme Plus 90MB/s card is a UHS-I card, rated Class 10, UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) and video speed class V30. The V30 rating means the card can maintain at least 30MB/s continuous write speed for recording HD and 4K video, while the older SD Class 10 specification for cards capable of at least 10MB/s continuous write speed.
