Are memory cards more likely to die in fast FPS (1Dx) cameras?

I've been shooting for 6/7 years with 500D, 5D2, 5D3 and have never had a memory card die on me regardless of the brand. Within a week of owning a 1Dx (used), I've had a Lexar 64g 1066X and a 32g 1000X die on me in a couple days. Has anyone experienced this before or am I just unlucky?

I'm thinking really, really unlucky but that's only based on using 8 and 10fps capable Nikons with CF and XQD the past 3 years. My old 40D hasn't caused problems with CFs in the 5 years I've had it either though it hasn't shot lots of high frame rate stuff

Well, I haven't had any issues with my cards yet. I'm going to have to agree that you've been a bit unlucky there.

I've been shooting 1D bodies for about 10 years. I shoot one type of motorsport and I blast away at 10 fps and have never had a memory card fail. But I write to both card slots just in case.

But I'm in no way 'proof'' that fast fps isn't hard on CF cards. I probably only shoot about 20 or 30 K shots at high speed. The rest are usually wedding shots at one frame at a time.
