FC-Test 1.0

Other read diagrams:

The SanDisk USB leaves the group of outsiders to overtake the fast chips in this test.

Other write diagrams:

The writing test produces a more interesting picture that shows both leaders and losers. Interestingly, the lowest speed comes from the AU6377 and the AU6362 with firmware 01.00 that have not been spotted among the outsiders before. The best result is provided by the GL819 with firmware 93.21 and by SanDisk’s ImageMate and Extreme USB.

FC-Test 2.0

Other read diagrams:

Other write diagrams:

The read diagrams are similar to what we’ve seen in the first version of the test but there are differences at writing. The group of losers that has got new members above is now also joined by the AU6333 whereas the SanDisk ImageMate has left its place in the top three to the GL819 with firmware 93.17.

Performance with Memory Stick Summary

Summing up this section of the tests, I can’t but regret the low speed of writing shown by every chip. It is not the problem of the specific chips, though. It is the problem of this memory card format. The low speed makes such cards incompatible with Vista ReadyBoost technology, by the way. The Extreme USB and the GL819 with firmware 93.21 can be named the leaders of the Memory Stick tests.
