Market’s Fastest microSD Card Store 1 TB Of Data

(Western Digital Corp.)

There may be a few folks out there that remember when a 2-GB hard-disk drive was hot stuff. Now we have thin wafers with solid-state memory technology far exceeding the fantasies of early PC users. Such is the case regarding Western Digital’s 1-TB UHS-I microSD flash memory card.


Western Digital Corp., at Mobile World Congress, showcased what it calls the world’s fastest 1-TB UHS-I microSD flash memory card, the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card. The card features higher speed and capacity for capturing and moving massive amounts of high-quality photos and videos on smartphones, drones, and action cameras.

Hear the CEOs of Infosys & HPE discuss the current crisis and how it has accelerated the need for digital transformation for their clients. Connectivity at the Edge, right mix of hybrid cloud, ability to extract data faster than ever before… these are just some of the contributions that HPE and Infosys make to our clients’ digital transformation journey.


Designed to move mass wads of content faster than ever, the card reaches speeds up to 160 MB/1, enabling file transfers in nearly half the time over standard UHS-I microSD cards currently available. Allegedly, the cards reach these record-breaking speeds by leveraging Western Digital’s proprietary flash technology.


The SanDisk Extreme card will also be available in 512-GB capacity and will feature the A2 specification. The 1-TB and 512-GB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSD cards are available for pre-order now on line and will be available at retailers in April. The cards will be priced at $449.99 and $199.99, respectively. Hopefully, with all that storage capacity and speed, someone will find media worth recording.
