ProGrade 200MB/s UHS-II V60 64GB SDXC Card Review

ProGrade 200MB/s UHS-II V60 64GB SDXC Memory Card

Introduction

ProGrade Digital is a new company, but their founders have decades of experience in the industry. In early 2018 ProGrade introduced their SDXC UHS-II memory card, with 200 MB/s prominently displayed on the label. The quoted read speed is 200 MB/s, while the write speed was rated 80 MB/s maximum and 60 MB/s minimum. The card carries the Video Speed Class 60 (V60) logo, meaning it can sustain at least 60MB/s continuous write speed for video recording.

ProGrade offers the SDXC 200MB/s V60 card in 64, 128 and 256 GB capacities. The 64GB SDXC card (PGSD128GBJNA) with UPC 853229008025 is tested in this review.

Performance

The ProGrade 200MB/s V60 card was evaluated by running benchmark tests in several USB 3.1 and 3.0 card readers. The maximum read speed measured was 166.4 MB/s, which is well short of the 200MB/s advertised. The sequential write speed was better than expected, reaching up to 108.4 MB/s, significantly higher than the 80MB/s maximum write speed claimed by ProGrade.

When the card is used in UHS-I devices its speed is limited in UHS-I mode. It reached 93.2 MB/s read and 89.8 MB/s write speeds in UHS-I card readers.
