The thing is though that I/O chip is rated at 50 we still don't know how its clocked (over/under), what the firmware is telling it to do, and if there's other factors limiting its performance. I personally went with a Lexar 400x since I figured the Extreme Pro was overkill at 95. See the card ratings are so misleading too, they do not normally publish the write speeds and when they do sometimes they do not represent real word data. I'd say get a card slightly over the 50mb rating just to be on the safe side that the card is not the limiting factor.
