Hi all,

I am looking to get the fastest memory card for my Canon 5D4. There used to be a site that listed memory card speeds, but I can't seem to find it.

Thanks for your patience,

Brian

That site died a long time ago.  You will want to use the CF slot  and find the highest speed card as speced by the MB/s.  But note, the very fastest cards will all be about the same regardless of who makes it as the speed is limited by the camera's ability to clear the buffer.

Here is what a Google search finds on your exact question:
https://www.cameramemoryspeed.com/canon-5d-mark-iv/sd-cf-card-speed-test/

As you can see, the difference between the top 15 is essentially negligible.

If you have a faster speed will that also help when downloading to your computer? Dont forget that Lexar are stopping the production of memory cards although you can still buy them i dont know what will happen if you have a card problem in the future

The faster the "read" speed, the faster your card can offer it's contents to your computer. Assuming you have no bottle neck between the card and your hard drive, a faster card will be copied quicker. Many people don't really care about that, but I shoot a lot of sports and I am on a deadline. SO when I can empty 2,000 shots into my new laptop in less than a minute, it really helps.
