SanDisk premieres 512GB SD card

Extreme-pro-512gb-prHoly cow! I’ve owned PCs with less memory. The SanDisk 512GB Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I memory card is not really designed for snapshooting, rather for those pros shooting 4K Ultra High Definition (3840x2160p) video, Full HD video (1920×1080)1 and high-speed burst mode photography.

Just by way of comparison, SanDisk unveiled its first 512MB SD card in 2003, yet this new card has the exact same footprint but 1,000X the capacity.

The new card delivers write speeds up to 90 MB/s and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) recording speed for high resolution, real-world colour and stutter-free 4K Ultra HD video. Transfer speeds up to 95 MB/s move data quickly for efficient post-production workflow.

Price . . . well, definitely not for snapshooting applications . . . somewhere around $800.
