The 16 years were so unbelievable I had to start my calculator and check for myself: With 60 MB/s I came to a livespan of ~99 days.Thirdly, at ~60 MB/s, it will take 5926 days, or over 16 years, to write 512TB of data on this card. The product is covered with a three-year warranty, so its actual capabilities well exceed the warranty.
Says who?Firstly, SD controllers do not support an advanced LDPC-based ECC technology, so memory cards cannot provide the same level of endurance as SSDs.
Here is the simple math 60mb/s * 60 seconds * 60minutes * 24 hours = 5,184,000 MB/1024MB/GB = 5062.5 GB/DAY = 5062.5GB/1024GB/TB = 4.944 TB/Day Write theoretical maximum.The 16 years were so unbelievable I had to start my calculator and check for myself: With 60 MB/s I came to a livespan of ~99 days.
All sd cards do wear leveling on the device - SD defines a simple block device, so the device which accesses the card does not have to worry about the internal structure / flash / ...Big question: does card internally takes care of wear leveling or is it on device?
If on device then using such card in mobile might be problematic.
