No, but I guess I could use a timer to get the total write time and then add up the file sizes to get an approximate MB/s speed. When I did the tests, my only purpose was to find the biggest buffer depth for an equestrian event I was shooting. I knew I would be doing lots of burst shooting as it was my first event and I had no idea what I was doing. Now that I have the 1D X, I try not to shoot too long of bursts as it results in way too many photos to review.
Along with the burst I timed till the last picture wrote to the card.
For stills the super fast card would only help in a very rare instance.
As you mentioned it helps more to try and do short bursts.
In 6 years of digital I have only lost 1 very rare chance at a pic due to a full buffer. That instance changed the way I do burst shots, look at cards and how I view what is important with digital cameras.
