Science Has FINALLY Brought us the World’s First 1TB SD Memory Card

1TB SD Card
Man has never known such awe-inspiring storage capacity as contained in the Lexar 1TB 633x UHS-I SD card.

We’ve done it! The greatest minds of science and technology have finally brought us a 1TB SD memory card! It took decades of research and development to figure out a way to pack that much storage capacity into something so tiny. But now, nearly 20 years since first invented, we’ve reached a new pinnacle of SD card capacity.

And just in time too. With SD cards still being asked to write 4K video recording on prosumer digital cameras, news of new 8K barriers are looking to be broken sooner rather than later.

Luckily, the brave souls at Lexar have finally unveiled the Professional SDXC Card 1TB Bl 633X Card. Let’s take a look at this historic feat…

The World’s First 1TB SD Card

Showcased a few months ago, the Lexar 1TB 633x is a class 10 UHS-I SD card with read speeds up to 95MB/s, designed specifically for capturing up to 4K video. Here’s an official statement from Lexar:

“Shoot and record more of what you love without changing cards with this high-capacity 1TB memory card that supplies the space you need for capturing all the action. Designed for your mid-range DSLR, HD camcorder, or 3D camera, the Lexar® Professional 633x SDXC™ UHS-I card lets you quickly capture, and transfer high-quality photos and stunning 1080p full-HD, 3D, and 4K video**, with read speeds of up to 633x (95MB/s)*. This Class 10 card leverages UHS-I technology to deliver high-speed performance to get the shot you want, while providing the reliability you need.”

The Lexar Professional SDXC 1TB BL 633X is priced $399.99 and available now.

I thought Lexar memory cards were discontinued?
It would be great with the new Black Magic Pocket Cinema 4k which eats memory card space like popcorn.
Plus - larger cards should push down the prices eventually. Right?

BMPC4k uses CFast cards .... even more expensive ... i use a 1TB Sansung T5 SSD, it's fast, small and relative cheap (with my BmPC4K)...

The pocket 4k actually does use SD cards in addition to the alternatives.

You can record raw 60fps to SD cards.

The few times I tried Lexar cards they frequently gave me format and write errors, so I have used SanDisk and Transcend cards exclusively.

I thought Lexar was getting out of the SD card biz, but apparently not.
