Are These 64gig Micro SD Cards Identical

They appear to be exactly the same, but
They seem to be for different uses and one has a New Speed Boost.
Is this just sales spin?

The packaging of the devices are different and it will probably be a sales pitch, the one is to be sold in a Cell phone shop for a cell phone and the other one (Speed Boost) should be sold at/with cameras.

Personally I agree this is just a sales pitch as both cards are exactly the same spec. The only difference is the packaging..
Try to get the model number of the two cards and compare them on sandisk website. It could be that the description is wrong on zoombits

They are different.  Hardware requirements must be met.  The lower price flash has a slower read/write.

For ReadyBoost to improve your computers performance the following requirements need to be met:
• The memory stick, flash drive or SD card must have a capacity greater than 256mb.
• The memory should have a 2.5MB/sec throughput for 4K random reads and 1.75MB/sec throughput for 512K random writes.
• The memory stick, flash drive or SD card should be 1-3 times the size of the RAM on your computer.

SDHC-I  Up to 30MB/s  
SDXC-I   48 MB/s Read, Write speed lower
