SanDisk Announces World's Largest SD Card

SanDisk is getting ready for the future with three new cards designed for high-performance still and 4K video recording without compromising on storage space.

The company announced today a new 512-gigabyte Extreme Pro SDXC memory card with a 90Mb/s write speed and 95Mb/s read speed, plus a U3 class rating and advanced error correction for unparalleled reliability.  This is the highest storage capacity currently available in an SDXC card, surpassing the previously-attained 256Gb mark and matching the capacity of Lexar's largest CompactFlash card.  What's the catch?  The $729.00 price tag, no doubt.

SanDisk is therefore also offering its new ultra high-speed card in both 256Gb and 128Gb versions, which will retail for $189 and $359, respectively.

We're slowly approaching the theoretical 2Tb limit for SDXC card despite the fact that considerably-smaller capacities are still more than adequate for a day's worth of shooting with most current-generation still cameras.
