These new microSD cards are already available for purchase for $230, and they come with a reassuring 10-year limited warranty.
SanDisk has announced an addition to its product lineup. In a market where microSD cards are becoming increasingly scarce, especially in the camera industry, the company is taking a bold step by introducing what they claim to be the world’s fastest high-capacity microSD card. This development is significant for users in the smartphone, drone, and small camera sectors, such as the GoPro Hero 12.
The show’s star is a 1.5TB high-capacity UHS-I microSD card, which boasts impressive read speeds of up to 150 MB/s. While the write speed remains undisclosed in the company’s official materials, the company clarifies that the card can achieve the promised 150 MB/s read speed when paired specifically with its MobileMate USB 3.0 microSD card reader. It’s important to note that these speeds may not be attainable by capture devices, and write speeds are often more critical for a device’s performance. Key features include:
- Perfect for Expanding Storage Capacity
- Ample Room for Extensive Media Libraries
- Achieving Fast Transfers at 150MB/s
- Enhance App Loading Speed with A1-Rated Performance
- Centralise Content Management
- Engineered for Longevity
Despite these caveats, the company’s claim of being the fastest at the 1.5TB capacity level is a noteworthy achievement.The company’s goal is to continue creating easy-to-use, trusted solutions that people rely on today and tomorrow, and it hopes the solutions it is launching today inspire people to keep creating.
High-Performance CFexpress Type B Card
In addition to the microSD card, the company is introducing a new Pro-Cinema brand, CFexpress Type B card. This high-performance card promises sustained write speeds of 1,400 MB/s, enabling cameras to capture 8K video seamlessly without dropping frames. The CFexpress Type B card is available for purchase, with a 320GB variant priced at $400 and a 640GB variant at $700.
It’s worth noting that the company has faced challenges in its portable SSD products division, with reports of higher-than-normal failure rates. Although this division is separate from the SD, microSD, and CFexpress divisions, it’s a concern that potential customers may consider when evaluating their memory card options. The company’s latest microSD card innovation is a promising development for users seeking high-capacity storage solutions, and it sets a new standard for performance in this category.
