how fast is a lexar 800x in 1Dx?
« on: May 09, 2013, 04:58:05 PM »
Just purchased a 1Dx and was looking for new cards (to replace older Sandisk Extremes).  I noticed that the Lexar 800x cards are about 1/2 the price of the 1000x cards. 

How does the speed of the Lexar 800x compare to the Lexar 1000x?  Is it similar or more like the Sandisk Extreme (not the Extreme Pro)?

Here is a test of some common cards.  The 800X is fairly new, but you can interpolate to get a good idea.
 
I would not expect much difference based on Lars testing.  Card size often does make a big difference.

Why would card size matter, unless you are close to filling the card?
