Kingston 64GB SDXC Class 3 Memory Card & USB 3.0 MobileLite G3 Review

During our visit with Kingston at CES 2014 this year, we had a chance to sit down with them to talk about the new and up-coming flash memory cards that are designed for HD Media use. With the advancing and growing media recording industry, faster and more reliable flash memory cards are on high demand, especially those looking for high capacity to store everything on one card. With the standards of 1080p recording, Ultra HD 2160p and 3D/2K&4K resolutions on the horizon, the number of pixels on recording devices can no longer suffice with the slower and lower capacity memory cards. It has been a couple of months since the initial talk and today we finally got our hands on the Kingston 64GB SDXC Class 3 UHS-I U3 flash memory card. Kingston developed this particular card in three available sizes, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The last one will be the memory card we take a look at today. Kingston was also nice enough to send us the Kingston Mobile Lite G3 SD and Micro-SD card USB 3.0 reader as an extra bonus to be able to test the memory card today. With the speed advancements in the SDXC memory card, we wanted to make sure there are no bottlenecks.

Kingston 8GB HyperX Predator Memory Kit – KHX26C11T2K2/8X

Introduction Over the last decade or so we have seen a speedy advancement in memory. Not too long ago we were talking about the DDR1 era with speeds of 400MHz as the bragging rights. Then we take a few steps forward and DDR2 came along, followed by DDR3 not too long after, as things continued to evolve. DDR3 has been one of the longest running memory platforms, going on 5 years now. Until the next big advancement in memory bandwidth comes along, we will simply continue to see incremental tweaks in the evolution of DDR3. That’s what we have today. With each growing chipset we are seeing new advancements with Intel’s IMC (internal memory controller). Today we are taking a look at a new memory set which will bring a new level of speed with Haswell. We have on our test bench today a set of Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3 2666MHz memory. This set, is specifically made to work with our Haswell IMC, and could push new limits for all us speed demons. Let’s put it to the test and find out!   Before we move forward, let’s read a bit about Kingston: “Founded in 1987 with a single product offering, Kingston Technology now offers more than 2,000 memory products that support nearly every device that uses memory, from computers, servers and printers to MP3 players, digital cameras and cell phones. In 2007, the company’s sales exceeded $4.5 billion. With global headquarters in Fountain Valley, California, Kingston employs more than 4,500 people worldwide. Re...
