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…
