Re: SD Card Benchmarks

Wed Dec 18, 2013 6:57 am

I wonder if someone with the Raspberry Pi NOOBS SD-card by Samsung MMCTR08G3ACH-QNJMK has run CrystalDiskMark or IOzone benchmarks on it? The announcement of the NOOBS card at
http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/4536
says the card should be fast for random I/O:
Fast, pre-programmed, high-capacity cards like the Samsung ones we’re bundling (and which have turned out to be our favourite cards in testing; they’re optimised for random read/write behaviour, unlike many cards which are designed for the large continuous reads and writes that digital cameras make) have been the best-selling Pi accessory offered by our partners since launch, so we’re expecting a lot of you to take us up on this offer.
There are probably quite a few of these cards available as you can buy them separately, but I could not find any benchmark results for exactly the model name MMCTR08G3ACH-QNJMK. It would be interesting to know how this card performs compared to the fastest SanDisk models?

I found this link with CrystalDiskMark results for a SD-card with a similar but not exactly same type at
http://r-2ch.com/t/smartphone/1369656716/
The NOOBS card is MMCTR08G3ACH-QNJMK and the benchmarked card is MMCTR08G3ACH-MM.
The result for the MMCTR08G3ACH-MM card is not so impressive for random writes:

The card goes a lot faster than that for block reads...

Note that there are two limiting factors to the top read speed of a suitably fast SD card:

- The original SD bus speed (HS mode) maxes out at about 21MB/s (minus a bit of overhead).
- The USB2.0 throughput on most hardware is limited to less than 480Mbps for a single device bulk endpoint (typical 25-30MB/s)

I have a USB3.0 card reader that supports all the UHS-I high throughput modes and the NOOBS card can do 45-ish MB/s easily.

I will spin up crystaldiskmark this evening and give it a go.

Thanks for sharing this result! I agree that it looks like a very good card for random writes.

Try reducing the size of your test data set, eg. try 50MB instead of 100MB.

I found that the same flash memory (USB3 memory stick in this case) could return good results at 50MB, even 100MB, but performance fell off a cliff when testing with a data set larger than 500MB. Maybe your Kingston card is suffering at only 100MB, though I've no idea why this should be the case (maybe an anomaly of the testing software, or it really is a poorly performing card?)

I repeated the test with 50MB test set size - no difference.

Edit: I knew I had seen these cards do faster than that: My desktop PC only has 2x USB3.0 ports and I plugged the reader into the wrong one :lol:

It appears there are two types of NOOBS card in the wild. The first is the class 4 variant but the version on sale right now is the class 6 variant.

I believe the USB2 port I used limits the maximum speeds I can measure to 19MB/s.

The sequential write and 512kB random write speeds are 2-3 times better than the NOOB class 6 card. The 4kB random read and write speeds are similar to the NOOBS.

So I think I prefer this card to the NOOBS class 6 because of the faster large file write speeds, everything else being similar. It certainly performs very well in XBMC usage. It cost me 11 Euro from amazon.de.

Interesting: so there is a card out there that has at least some optimisation for random read/write.

But consider that the NOOBS SD card is £4 + shipping (less than 11€).

http://swag.raspberrypi.org/collections ... gb-sd-card

Note that the vast majority of workload for a typical desktop OS is random read with a few random writes - interpreting how "fast" a particular card is for an OS workload is a non-trivial estimation.

This card is 10x-100x faster on small random writes than all my other SD cards and USB sticks. I chose it on a whim because the NOOBS card is a Samsung.

Hi all,
My first post here :)
I have been conducting some benchmarking of my own in the last week,
And I got to the conclusion that this is complete voodoo-
2 cards of the same serial number give completely different results,
But each card is consistent with its own results so at least it means the results are valid (even after formatting with different options - results were the same for the specific card).
I have checked 32gb class 4 (which gave good results, actually), 2gb class 2 (which were so so), 16gb class 2 (again, so so ), several 8gb class 6 (which mostly gave OK results, some more than others, sometimes the same serial gave completely different results, but all were poor with the random write), but the best of the bunch was an 8gb class 4!
I have a problem with the last test, mabe someone encountered something similar- during the last test (QD=32) my card hangs and then is not recognized - I suspect it is my USB adapter- this happened with all the faster cards (the ones which had random write higher than 1), so I dont have all results but I am attaching the 8gb class 4 results (sorry, I couldnt find the serial number - is it encoded on the card itself?)

Here's the new Samsung Class 6
Samsung Electronics 8GB Micro SDHC with Adapter Upto 24MB/s Class 6 Memory Card (MB-MS08DA/AM)
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electroni ... 453&sr=1-2

Seems not as good as the old class 6 Samsung cards. This one underperformes on sequential ("Upto 24MB/s" ) but 4k seems relatively decent.

Hi Leopold,
Sorry to say but your test has no meaning as you tested the card not in the pi,
And the pi does not support the benefits of class 10- meaning it would work with the pi, but not give the results you jus got.

True, the Pi can't take advantage of the sequential figures, but his 4K random read/write are the important figures for Pi use, and those are high too.
