The 150MB/s claim is for non-standard use. UHS-I has 104MB/s as a maximum transfer speed in the specs as used by most devices. Only a few card readers of the same brand as the card can operate these with DDR to achieve faster transfer rates. If they made them fully UHS-II or UHS-III spec then it would be fairer to market the 150MB/s & have it work at that speed in more devices.

UHS-I

Specified in SD version 3.01. (Circa 2010) UHS-I cards declared as UHS104 (SDR104) also support a clock frequency of 208 MHz, which could transfer 104 MB/s.

There is a proprietary UHS-I extension primarily by SanDisk that increases transfer speed further called DDR208 (or DDR200). Unlike UHS-II, it does not use additional pins. It achieves this by using the 208 MHz frequency of the standard SDR104 mode, but using DDR transfers.

Class 10 / U1 / V10 levels and that basically means it is capable of sustained 10 MB/s writing speeds
