SanDisk yesterday unveiled what they claim to be yet the world’s fastest SDHC cards. The latest in technology new Extreme III SDHC series will come in 4/8/16/32GB capacities and will boast speeds of up to 30MB/second! These specs will be perfect for those looking to get more involved with HD video recording but have so far been annoyed by the lack of speed when it comes to transferring large video files.
The SD Association (the people who brought us the popular SD flash memory card standards) at this year’s CES have announced a new memory card specification called SDXC, where the two letters behind SD stand for “eXtended Capacity”.
The specification is quite amazing, providing up to 2 terabytes storage capacity and accelerates SD interface read / write speeds of up to 104 megabytes per second, with a road map to 300 megabytes per second.
