The one I just bought, does! Thanks Michael!

I bought Samsung Evo+ MicroSDXC 128GB. It was formatted with ExFAT. I
formatted it with FAT32 and Rockbox worked out of the box with it.

I kept the partition table. I think they let the first partition start at
sector 32768 (instead of Linux default 2048) for a (performance) reason.

(See README for an explaination on how to interpret the values.)

Medium is a memory card which reports 524288 bytes as erase block size
and 4194304 bytes as preferred erase size.

===> Suggestions for further benchmarking <===

Further tests can show the number of open erase blocks the medium
can support.

BEWARE: These tests write onto the device! Make a backup first!

Further tests could look as follows:
flashbench --open-au --open-au-nr=3 --erasesize=524288 --blocksize=1024 /dev/
mmcblk0 --offset=$[24*1024*1024]
flashbench --open-au --open-au-nr=5 --erasesize=524288 --blocksize=1024 /dev/
mmcblk0 --offset=$[24*1024*1024]
flashbench --open-au --open-au-nr=7 --erasesize=524288 --blocksize=1024 /dev/
mmcblk0 --offset=$[24*1024*1024]
flashbench --open-au --open-au-nr=13 --erasesize=524288 --blocksize=1024 /dev/
mmcblk0 --offset=$[24*1024*1024]

(Consult the README for further suggestions.)
