As our portable electronic devices keep getting sophisticated and more capable of performing complex tasks, the data storage needs. Take the case of new Samsung Galaxy S9 which records Super Slow-Mo videos at 960 FPS. There, you need a storage unit that writes data at ultra-fast speed.
At Mobile World Congress 2018, SanDisk released the world’s fastest UHS-I flash memory card. The new 400GB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card is about 50% faster than the existing UHS-I microSD cards from the company itself.
To be precise, the new card boasts read speeds up to 160MB/s. The write speed is comparatively slower as 90MB/s. SanDisk says that it has been made possible with the help of Western Digital’s proprietary technology. This high-speed becomes more crucial in today’s times due to 4K/8K video recordings on cameras and drones.
SanDisk Extreme UHS-I 400 GB card will allow the apps to launch and load apps at super-fast speed, thanks to the support for the new A2 specification. This specification was introduced to deal with app installations in memory cards in a better manner. The microSD card also features a durable body, which allows it to be safe from x-ray, water, dust, and shock hazards.
As per the official press release, at MWC, Western Digital is also showcasing its PCIe-enabled SD card as the future of flash memory cards.
In case you’re wondering about the price, the world’s fastest microSD card costs $300.
