Who doesn’t like snappier performance in an SD card? ADATA announced the Premier Pro SDHC and SDXC cards, which are packing performancing-enhancing Ultra High Speed I (UHS-I) technology. Designed especially for professional photographers who also need more capacity and faster performance, the Premier Pro SDHC and SDXC cards boast read/write speeds of up to 95/45MB/s and are X-ray proof and can handle extreme temperatures. They also feature error correcting code (ECC) and write-switch protection and come in capacities of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. The cards come with a lifetime warranty and will... Read more...
Toshiba is launching a new line of SDXC and SDHC memory cards under the “Exceria” moniker that are designed to be the best in the business. The name, in fact, is a spin on the words “excellence” and “ experience”; in other words, Toshiba is stating that it has the track record and chops to deliver a top of the line solution with these new cards. Compliant with the UHS-I2 standard, the cards should hit UHS and SD speed classes of 15 and 106 and will come in three series: Type 1, Type 2, and Type HD. Type 1 cards will have maximum read/write speeds of 95MB/s and... Read more...
We're getting closer and closer to living in a world where 1TB memory cards are commonplace. Just a few years ago, having a 1GB flash card in your camera was a big deal. Now, even the simplest of cameras can acquire a 1GB card for just a few dollars. The technology is advancing, and larger capacity cards are growing easier to find, and cheaper to buy. Lexar Media is pushing the envelope even further by this week shipping the industry's first 128GB Professional SDXC card, not to mention a 64GB version for those who either don't need all of that space yet or simple aren't willing to push their budget...

Bigger, faster, stronger. It applies to a lot of things, include storage formats. Hardcore power users are always demanding more from their media, and the SD Association understands that they have to keep up for fear of being lapped by CompactFlash, xD or any of the other memory card formats. The association has just introduced a new speed lane for the SD format to follow, but you won't hardly be able to tell. Those looking to spot the new speed will need to look up; there's a new row of pins which will enable faster transfers, but the old row of pins ensures backwards compatibility. The new specification... Read more...
The flash memory game, of all games, is starting to heat up. With HD video recording on the minds of nearly everyone these days, having a card that's fast enough to capture it all is quite important. More and more HD devices are supporting the Secure Digital format, and SDXC in particular. Today, Lexar Media introduced their new professional SDXC memory card solutions -- two cards that are about as highly touted as they come. The first is a 64GB Class 10 SDXC card, while the second is the industry's first 128GB Class 10 card. Both offer minimum guaranteed speeds of 133x (20MB per second), and accelerate... Read more...
SDHC UHS-I cards were announced a few months ago, with the UHS-I designation meant to showcase enhanced speeds over traditional Secure Digital cards. These cards are designed for more professional applications, such as broadcast television or recording real-time HD footage. But announcing a specification and announcing a shipping product that takes advantage are two very different things, and now Toshiba is proud to announce that they're shipping the world's fastest SDHC memory card. The biggest news here is that we're talking about SDHC, not SDXC. SDHC is more widely accepted in products (particularly... Read more...
"Fast" never really is "fast enough," is it? In the computer realm, that's almost always true. In the Flash memory market, that's definitely true. Regardless of how quick your interface is, it's always annoying to sit and wait for transfers, particularly large ones, to complete. The SD Association is really making a name for itself lately, and the SD card looks to be slowly making a play for becoming the go-to format, even for professionals. Not long ago, SDXC was announced as the next generation Secure Digital memory card format. For many, having access to up to 2TB on a card with transfer rates... Read more...
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....

SDXC is the next generation of the long-standing Secure Digital memory card format, which has become quite popular and pervasive over the past few years. SDXC was initially announced at CES 2009, and it has taken over a year for the first cards (from Panasonic) to ship to consumers. Now, SanDisk is marching in as the second memory company to ship an SDXC card to the public, and the price tag is somewhat less shocking here compared to the Panasonic variety.The 64GB SanDisk Ultra SDXC promises up to 15MB/sec read speed and a Class 4 speed rating, but it's capable of capturing and storing "massive"...

SDXC. It's a new memory card format, but only in a certain light. You see, SDXC actually surfaced back in early 2009, but no commercial cards were launched until about a week ago. Already it seems that Panasonic is eager to get some new products on the market to take advantage, but that's not surprising given that it is one of the few firms out there producing SDXC cards for the public. At any rate, the company has just launched three new HD camcorders into its 2010 line: the HDC-HS60, HDC-TM55, HDC-SD60. All three feature a 35.7mm wide-angle lens, a 25x optical zoom and support for SD, SDHC and... Read more...
We've already heard of SDXC--in fact, it's a format that was announced almost a year ago now--but we've really seen nothing to make us believe it (or the technology behind it) was ready for primetime. Now, however, it looks as if the underpinnings are finally coming together, and we're hearing things that are making us smile about existing Secure Digital options as well (backwards compatibility, anyone?) Reportedly, the next-generation Secure Digital (SD) memory card standard, SD Specification Version 4.00, is expected to be completed by the Spring of 2010, which could mean that SDXC cards will...

If you've bought a laptop recently, chances are good it has an integrated SDHC flash memory card reader. Today, the SDHC standard is pretty commonly used in various devices including digital cameras, camcorders, MP3 players, and many other devices. By integrating SDHC card readers into laptops, manufacturers have made the standard even more convenient to use since you don't have to carry an external reader to download and upload files from a memory card. Like all other technologies however, SDHC is in the process of being replaced by a newer, faster standard called SDXC. The SDXC standard was announced... Read more...
Toshiba announced the launch of the world’s first 64GB SDXC memory card that is capable of operating at the world's fastest data transfer rate for reading and writing to a flash memory card. The new card meets the specifications of the new SD Memory Standard, Ver. 3.00, UHS104. In addition to the new 64GB SDXC memory card, Toshiba also unveiled 32GB and 16GB SDHC cards that are also compliant with the world's fastest data transfer rate. The SD Memory Card Standard Version 3.00, UHS104 offers a maximum write speed of 35MB per second, and a read speed of 60MB per second. The large storage capacities... Read more...
