Things are getting out of hand fast as Sandisk has unveiled new 1-terabyte SD cards.
Just a few months ago, mad engineers at Lexar seemed to overstep the bounds of space and recording capabilities when they announced the world’s first 1TB SD card (read our full write-up here).
Now, just a few months later, has science progressed too far with the even more insane world’s first 1TB MICRO SD cards being unveiled by SanDisk with the UHS-I microSDXC? Let's take a look and see.
1TB MicroSD Cards Are Here
Announced by Micron and Western Digital at Mobile World Congress, these new cards are reportedly set for 100MB/s read speed and 95MB/s max write performance which should meet UHS-I Speed 3 and Video Speed Class 30 specifications for “video recording of 4K content, game consoles and burst-mode still photography.”
“Micron’s technology leadership in 3D NAND with CMOS under the array and 96-layer QLC has been instrumental in developing and launching the world’s first 1TB microSD card. The new c200 1TB microSD card gives consumers the freedom to capture, share, store and enjoy more content while supporting their mobile-centric lifestyles.” - Aravind Ramamoorthy, senior director of NAND solutions for Micron's Embedded Business Unit
Price and release reports for the Western Digital 1TB SanDisk has the MicroSD available in April at a $450 price point. Although we’ll keep you posted as exact prices and links are confirmed.
