Read speed up to 90MB/sec
Write speed up to 60MB/sec
In comparison to other CF cards tested on my computer this one writes very slowly. Writes at 10MB/sec and reads at 60Mb/sec., tested using H2testw. Other cards with slower specs actually write faster and almost meet their specs. While very few cards meet their specs this card fails miserably.
