This specific card was appreciably faster than one that was two years old. Sadly I have no specs on the 2 year old one. I did a relatively unscientific but practical test of the cards speed. I copied a 10gb file from my hard drive to the new AmazonBasics card and it showed up in substantially less than a second. I copied the same file on my 2 year old card and it took 4.5 seconds. So from a layman’s point of view this card is seriously faster.
I liked it.
I was provided this card at no charge for testing and review.
