    Default Specific software to test memory card speed?

    Is there a software out there that will let me test and verify the speed of my CF cards?

    Just want to compare 2 Kingston Elite Pro cards that I bought recently, one from a local market and one from ebay (just yesterday). Both look the same though the packaging is slightly different as the year model on each card is different (2003 and 2008). Well, I'll let the pictures do the talking :




    It could be that the packaging and print had varied since they're 5 years apart, but I want to confirm!

    Anyway, I got the 4GB for $20 from the market and still have the receipt in case it's not the real thing. So far I haven't had any problems with it and was in a bit of a hurry to get one at the time. Now that the 16GB has finally arrived I thought I might try and see the performance difference between the two (maybe even the 16GB could be fake!).

    German website, magazine for computer technology: http://www.heise.de/software/download/h2testw/50539
    Follow the download link. Program also supports English. Tests integrity and speed of the card. Do backup ALL data before doing this test, any existing data will be gone.
    Bear in mind that your peripheral components (reader, USB chips, drivers, system load) also affect the speed results. Results would only be valid for you current configuration.

    I got a Kingston 133x elite pro 8GB sometime back, and the write speed was slow. I don't have any softwear to verify it, but compared with the same Kingston 133x elite pro 4GB that I have, it was slow.

    Does anyone know why this is so? Same maker, same model, same 133x, but different GB... and the performance differs.

    Just got a 4GB Kingston Class 4 for backup. Write is 7.4MB/s and read is 11.9MB/s.
    Same Kingston Class 4, 8GB, 9.4MB/s and 17.5MB/s.

    So TS size is different anyway, this explains it.
