SanDisk Shows Off Fastest 64GB microSDXC Memory Card on the Planet

Mobile devices aren't getting any slower, and so it's imperative that third-party component and peripheral makers keep up with the rapid pace of technology. That doesn't seem to be a problem for flash memory player SanDisk, which today announced the SanDisk Extreme microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-I memory cards. According to SanDisk, the microSDXC card is the fastest of its kind.

"The SanDisk Extreme microSDXC card allows users to do more with their devices," said Susan Park, director, retail product marketing, SanDisk. "Our high-performance and high-capacity microSD cards enable consumers to take advantage of the high-quality HD video and imaging capabilities in the latest 4G smartphones, tablets and action cameras."

It offers up to 80MB/s read and up to 50MB/s write speeds. Furthermore, the SanDisk microSDXC card is available in up to 64GB of capacity and is compatible with the latest cameras and sport/action Full HD camcorders, the company says. It's even capable of handling 4K HD video recording chores.

SanDisk Extreme microSDHC and microSDXC cards are available now in 16GB to 64GB capacities ranging in price from $60 to $200.

This kind of thing just blows my mind. Not only is this card seriously small (I think that image above is like 10/1 scale), it's fast enough to deal with either high-res video or photography with theoretically no lag. Just crazy...

While I am sure this card would be great for 1080p recording, I really don't see how a write speed of 50MB/s is adequate for 4k recording. Video recorded at 1080p can have a data rate of 45-50MB/s during scenes with lots of action, so I imagine the data rate for 4k video would be several times higher under the same circumstances.
