Samsung Evo Plus vs SanDisk Extreme
October 20, 2018
A better comparison would have been the Samsung Pro line of SD cards to the SanDisk Exreme but I was curious how a more budget oriented card would do compared to a card that is known to be one of the fastest. There is a newer version of the SanDisk Extreme out that is the A2 so if you do buy get the newer one.
As you can see both tests are pretty similar in it's results. The budget EVO Plus has roughly 20MB/s slower write rate compared to the more expensive Extreme but for read speeds it's a pretty negligible difference. For action cameras which is constant write, I would buy the Extreme and for the EVO Plus I would use in something that doesn't have much write jobs such as storage for a phone or a drive for a Raspberry Pi. That's not to say that the EVO Plus wouldn't work in an action camera. The new GoPro 7 Black shoots 4K at a bitrate of 78Mbps which is about 9.75 MB/s so even with the EVO Plus at 68MB/s there shouldn't be a problem whatsoever but having a faster card can only help.
