These tests are negligible for consumers, but helpful for all who want to create a system using one of these cards as the system drive.
Only SanDisk and Lexar provide I/O performance sufficient to execute applications.
The Web server workload mostly requires read access, which is executed quickly on all SDHC cards. In the end, SanDisk doesn’t dominate here.
The workstation test shows similar results as in the file server run. SanDisk wins, Lexar follows, and the others are hardly useable.
