I have read an older post that wear leveling is included in all falsh memories (http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/Mobile-memory-professional-cards/looking-for-an-micro-SD-card-in-indust...), but why is wear leveling only mention in Extreme Pro ( http://www.sandisk.com/products/memory-cards/sd/extremepro-sdxc-sdhc-uhs-1-95mbs/?capacity=8GB )?. Does it exists different types of wear leveling? I am looking for 8GB microSD cards offer high endurance for industrial use. Does Extreme Pro have longer life time than for example http://www.sandisk.com/products/memory-cards/microsd/ultra-class10-with-adapter/?capacity=16GB?

Dear member of SanDisk Community, welcome.
Friend, you investigated it which is in the Forum, the next step, to get a very specific answer is:

I was using SDHC cards on rPi, and I am tired of burning cards every 6 months. So, I was advised to buy MMC, but I wanted to be sure they are better than SD. And I found this page.

all modern flash devices have wear leveling. The cards you have been using however are not designed to the type of work load a pi will put on the card. sandisk supports recommendation of the high endurance cards is correct if you are looking at retail lines of cards. you could also use industrial cards as well but any support would be though the distributor where you purchased the card not sandisk retail support.
