To make full use of your SD card, it is recommended to test the speed of your SD card. Fortunately, there are several ways to run an SD card speed test.
Now, let's go through the first way to test the speed of a Micro SD card.
EaseUS Partition Master has a feature called "Disk Mark," and it allows users to get detailed speed data of their device, such as I/O, Delay, sequential/random write, and sequential/random read. Let's see more about it:
- Interface: Rather clear
- Operation difficulty: Low (Easy to use)
- Targeted users: Beginners and experienced users
- System supported: Windows 11/10/8/7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista
- Pro: Peak speed can be tested
Now, follow the steps below to run a Micro SD card speed test:
Step 1. Launch EaseUS Partition Master. And click the download button to activate the "DiskMark" feature under the "Discovery" section.
Step 2. Click on the drop-down box to choose the target drive, test data, and block size.
Step 3. Once everything is configured, click "Start" to begin the disk test. Then, you can see the Sequential or Random read/write speed, I/O, and Delay data.
Let's see some key features of this tool here:
- Format Micro SD card
- Test SSD read/write speed
- Repair bad sectors on SD card
- Check SSD health on Windows
- Run external hard drive speed test
As you see, this tool can help you manage your Micro SD card well. Download and try it.
Task Manager can also help you check the speed of your Micro SD card. However, it, as a free SD card speed test tool, can only monitor the real-time speed; as a result, you can't get the peak speed of your Micro SD card. Here is how to use Task Manager to test speed:
Step 1. Right-click the Windows icon and choose "Task Manager."
Step 2. Click "Performance" and locate your Micro SD card on the left panel. You can see the real-time speed of your device.
However, Task Manager can provide only limited data, as you can see. Hence, turn to EaseUS Partition Master if you want to see more detailed data in an easier way.
As a main factor, the speed of a Micro SD card matters a lot. This article provides two ways to help test Micro SD card speed on a Windows PC. You can choose one way based on your choice; however, if you are a beginner or not familiar with computing, EaseUS Partition Master is a better choice.
