Kioxia Extreme Light Speed Series Memory Card Evaluation: Classic Red and White Reissue
Since Toshiba Storage changed its name to Kioxia, the packaging colors of various products of the entire brand have changed accordingly, especially the SD card products have changed from the traditional low-key black For the style, I chose a more youthful color scheme. For example, today’s Kioxia EXCERIA PLUS Extreme Light Speed series memory card uses an irritating red color, featuring high performance. I believe it will be the favorite of camera enthusiasts. Let me share the hands-on experience.
Packaging appearance: extremely recognizable
Kioxia EXCERIA PLUS memory card’s outer packaging is very simple, the overall packaging is mainly magenta, the middle It is the pattern of a camera with a pan-tilt, indicating the main use scene of this memory card, suitable for those who pursue high-speed and stable photography and video users.
At the bottom of the package is the logo of the brand, and at the top is some simple information about the product, such as model, capacity, name, etc. This memory card supports V30, U3, class 10, etc. The technical agreement is Kioxia’s current best product in the high-performance TF card market, which fully guarantees our needs for 4K video shooting and helps users record every moment clearly.
The back of the product packaging is an introduction to some of the functions and features of the product. Its maximum read and write speeds are 100MB/s and 85MB/s respectively, and it supports 4K video shooting, and is resistant -25℃~85℃ extreme temperature, X-ray resistance, waterproof, 5 meters drop resistance and other characteristics, which can meet the requirements of high-definition shooting in various harsh environments.
Kioxia EXCERIA PLUS memory card is a standard SD card specification, the measurement is 32*24*2.1mm, the weight is about 2 grams, the shell is the classic white and red color, which makes people impressive , And the yellow switch on the left is used for data reading and writing lock, you can dial it down when needed.
The back of this memory card is all white, with some information such as the serial number printed on it. The place of origin is Japan and it has passed the CE certification.
This time we have a 256G version, which can store about 162710 pictures with 5 million pixels; about 38510 pictures with 18 million pixels; about 2620 minutes for HD videos; about 314 minutes for 4K. So you don’t have to worry about not having enough storage space for shooting. In addition, there are three versions of 32G, 64G and 128G. Consumers can choose the capacity that suits them according to their needs.
This memory card uses Kioxia’s original BiCS Flash 3D flash memory particles, and the quality is guaranteed. This is the basis for the current Kioxia brand.
high-speed reading and writing, 4K@60p high bit rate free recording
as an SD card, the most common occasion It is the camera, but the data read and write speed generated by the current camera shooting is not the ordinary SD card can withstand. Kioxia EXCERIA PLUS has been tested by us, whether it is using EOS R to shoot 30.3 million pixel photos at high speed or using Fuji XT- 3 Shoot 4K@60P high bit rate video, it can complete the task very smoothly.
On EOS R, the SD card access speed will affect the speed of high-speed continuous shooting. The continuous shooting effect we actually tested is very powerful, but the high-speed cannot be shown in the article The effect of continuous shooting, we choose to shoot 4K@60P video to reflect the speed of the memory card.
Fuji XT-3 requires 4K@60P to be turned on. The conditions are harsh. As long as the memory card does not meet the standard, the option is gray and cannot be selected. And Kioxia EXCERIA PLUS is no problem when starting the 4K@60P shooting mode of Fuji XT-3, and the highest bit rate can be selected as 200Mbps.
The actual shooting effect is like moving pictures, very smooth.
performance test: continuous reading and writing is stable enough
The next step is the speed test In the link, we first used 3 commonly used storage product test software to measure its theoretical read and write speed, and then will add actual transmission tests later.
is the Crystal Disk Mark test first. In the 1G file test, the write speed of this memory card is 86.41MB/s and the read speed is 97.74MB/s.
In the ATTO Disk Benchmark test, the read and write performance of the two memory cards under different file sizes can be tested according to data packets of different sizes. Kioxia EXCERIA PLUS series memory card 256G version has a maximum write speed of 93.43MB/s and a maximum read speed of 86.66MB/s, basically reaching the official data. At the same time, we can find from the test that the read and write performance of Kioxia’s SD card is between 64KB and 4MB. This can also be understood as the range of sequential reading and writing of large files, which can ensure higher speed when reading and writing large files such as videos and pictures.
Then in the file benchmark test under HD Tune Pro, in this mode, the test is performed by actually writing the file and then reading the file, which can well simulate the actual working state of the memory card And real transmission speed. The positioning of this memory card is to focus on high performance. In order to test the performance of this memory card in a long-term continuous reading and writing scene, we set a file length of 20G for testing, and the transmission speed has been stable at about 85MB/s. , The overall performance is very stable.
The last part is the actual transmission test. The transmission speed of this memory card is tested by copying a 13GB MP4 format video file. The writing speed of this KIOXIA EXCERIA PLUS series memory card It is basically stable at around 84MB/s, which is close to the above test results, and the stability is very good.
PConline evaluation room summary: easy to use large-capacity high-speed card
Kioxia EXCERIA PLUS series memory card features high performance , The maximum read and write speeds have reached 97.74MB/s, 86.410MB/s, performance is slightly better than its own persistent storage series, coupled with the original factory particle blessing, so that this memory card can have excellent transmission stability It can be said to inherit the high quality of Toshiba Storage. In addition, it can withstand extreme temperatures from -25°C to 85°C, is X-ray resistant, waterproof, and 5 meters resistant to fall. It is very suitable for “fast shooters” to shoot excellent quality photos and videos in various environments.
