Transcend Introduces 64GB Class 10 SDXC Memory Card

Even the new Mac Mini supports SDXC, so it's pretty safe bet that SDXC will be a recognizable format in the coming months and years. In order to prepare for the future demand, yet another mainstay in the flash memory business is introducing an SDXC card today. Transcend has went ahead and revealed their 64GB Class 10 card, which will almost certainly break speed records (as well as your budget).

Transcend claims that the new card will offer transfer rates as high as 25MB/sec, and that the new device will be capable of holding over 26,000 pictures, 352 hours of SD video or 640 minutes of 1080p video. Unfortunately, no exact price or release date is given, but we would expect it out rather soon.

  Transcend Announces 64GB Class 10 SDXC Memory Card

transcend 64gb sdxc.jpgTranscend Information, Inc. today announced the company’s first 64GB Class 10 SDXC memory cards. Featuring an unprecedented amount of storage capacity and ultra fast transfer rates up to 25 MB/s, Transcend’s new Ultimate SDXC cards are perfect for consumers in need of extended HD video recording time and improved camera performance for high-resolution digital photography.

SDXC (Secure Digital eXtended Capacity) is the next-generation standard for SD cards established by the Secure Digital Association (SDA). With supported capacities ranging from 32GB up to 2TB, SDXC offers vastly greater storage potential compared to the SDHC standard, which only supports capacities up to 32GB. A 64GB SDXC card is capable of storing a maximum of 26208 pictures (based on 5 megapixel JPEG compression format), 352 hours of standard
quality video (MPEG-4 video at 384 Kbps), or 640 minutes of 1920×1080 videos. Thanks to its use of the exFAT file system that supports files larger than 4GB, Transcend’s SDXC cards feature astonishingly high storage capacity, making them the ideal complement to today’s high-end SDXC-compatible DSLR cameras and HD camcorders.

Fully Class 10 compliant, Transcend Ultimate SDXC cards boast read speeds up to 25 MB/s. This exceptional data transfer performance not only prevents lag when recording 1920×1080 Full HD videos, but also enables high-speed consecutive shooting at sporting or other fast-motion events. As more and more consumer electronic products such as HDTVs, Blu-ray players, mobile phones and GPS are expected to support SDXC in the near future, widespread adoption of SDXC is just around the corner.

For further peace of mind, the new SDXC cards are comprehensively tested for compatibility and reliability, and carry Transcend’s renowned Lifetime Warranty. In addition to the 64GB Class 10 SDXC Cards, Transcend also offers a complete line of Ultimate series Class 10 SDHC Cards, which deliver transfer speeds of up to 20MB/s and are available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities.

I recently put a Kingston class 10 16GB micro SD card in my EVO phone. All I can say is that it was like night and day from the stock class 2 card when transfering files to/from or loading media.

These are fast, but extremely pricey. I'm not so sure that the advanced performance is worth the grinding cost of ownership either.

The eight 16GB cards that I have now for my Nikon's are fast enough to do my photography without waiting around between shots for SD writes already. They were a small fraction of the price of these things.
