Test results of three microSD cards plugged into the bottom of a Raspberry Pi.

Configuration:
Raspberry Pi Model 4 B 4 GB

Benchmark:
Run the benchmark on your Raspberry Pi with the CLI command:
sudo curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/TheRemote/PiBenchmarks/master/Storage.sh | sudo bash

Benchmark website:
https://storage.jamesachambers.com/
The website's very high benchmark scores (9,000 to 10,000) are sometimes from CPUs that are overclock to 2GHz and 2.1GHz.
The normal RPi 4 CPU clock speed is 1.5 GHz.
Look for David WA9ONY benchmarks in the User Table column.
