Optimal speed memory card for 70D?

I am trying to pick out a 64gb memory card for my new EOS 70D (I may also use it in my EOS M). I've been trying unsuccessfully to find out what the maximum speed the 70D is capable of utilizing is. For example, Amazon has a selection of SanDisk cards on sale, but I was unsure if a maximum write speed of 40/MBsec is fast enough -- I've seen some reviewers mention using 80/MBsec cards instead and I don't want the card to be a bottleneck. On the other hand, I'm not planning to buy another camera in the near future, so I don't want to overbuy, since by the time I purchase another camera, anything available right now will probably be slow.
