Memory Cards, Part 1: CompactFlash From 8GB To 64GB

Transcend Extreme Plus 600x (8GB, 16GB)

Transcend sent us two cards from its Extreme Plus 600x series: one 8GB and one 16GB.

We found that the 16GB version delivered better throughput (roughly 11 MB/s maximum difference) and was the second best in our sequential read test. The performance difference between the two cards was smaller on sequential writes.

Both deliver average I/O performance results, as they were clearly optimized for maximum throughput rather than I/O capabilities.

Transcend provides a lifetime or 30-year warranty. All other product information from Transcend is rather general.
