SD info and benchmarks (was Re: EOS M3 porting)

I run the Benchmark tool on my M3
The RAW Write shows only 223Kb/s.
Same Card on my S110 shows 21000Kb/s.
Mem write on both Cams is around 21000Kb/s.
For me it looks like there is a bug in the RAW Write…

On my PC the Card goes writing over 45000Kb/s.

Comparing on the Mem writes, the SD card interface on the M3 is not faster as on the S110.

Indeed, thanks for the report. The M3 has the highest resolution sensor among CHDK cameras, the RAW size has exceeded an integer limit in code.

Understood the overfflow ... would not an unsigned integer help?
Do you see other Overflows on the M3?

Not so fast...
It's interesting to view benchmark results of other Digic6 cameras.

AFAIK reyalp is the only person who experienced card read/write speeds exceeding ~21MB/s, on his G7x. Visit the camera's porting thread (first page) for the log.

Newer D6 cameras (M10, G3x, G5x, SX710, SX720) have an eventproc named 'SDCardUHSActive'. Its return value is based on a firmware variable. I tried two cards in my M10, one UHS, one non-UHS. The variable reads 0, in both cases. My UHS card also stays below 20MB/s (it's a Sandisk that should read 'up to' 48MB/s).
It's either the camera being extra-sensitive about enabling UHS speed, or the firmware simply doesn't allow it on certain D6 models.

It's either the camera being extra-sensitive about enabling UHS speed, or the firmware simply doesn't allow it on certain D6 models.
Or Canon's codebase contains UHS related code even on hardware that doesn't support it, or that informational bit isn't hooked up somewhere.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I don't think this camera has different hardware.
At least it shows the same results with my SD card
EOS 80D has SdDomain_RELEASE_20150302
EOS M3 has SdDomain_RELEASE_20141224_for_14Late

Maybe somebody can test cards from top of this list ?

That would be interesting information.  But I'm not too sure many forum members will drop $50 for an SD card these days .....

I do.

https://www.dpreview.com/products/compare/side-by-side?products=canon_eos80d&products=canon_eosm3
Continuous shooting:
80D: 7 FPS
M3:  4.2 FPS

The Canon specs page for 80D specifically calls out UHS-1 high speed support, while EOS M3 only says "UHS-1 compatible"
Don't forget what the H stands for.
