New memory card standard: SD Express >128TB capacity & 985 MB/s

We can't take advantage of this yet but maybe one day we will get the benefit of Ricoh/Pentax sticking with SD format instead of CF or SQD.

New memory card standard announced: SD Express (up to 128TB capacity and 985 MB/s maximum data transfer rate) | Photo Rumors

Don't need it right now, but will be useful in the future, mainly for video I think

128TB! Wow, that's insane. Does this spell the end of external hard drives?

Just think of how many battery changes will be needed to fill one of those cards up. Just think of how long it would take to recover the data from one of these cards if something screws up

Only when SD cards become as reliable and fast as hard drives.

Personally, I've had more failures of spinning-disk hard drives than SD cards.

With one of these, think how many images one could lose if it was lost, damaged, or failed. I hope we'll still be able to buy our current relatively "small" SDs, but higher transfer speed couldn't hurt.

I agree. Pair the high speed with sensible capacities. I don't need TBs of storage on a single card but the increase in read/write speeds would be more than welcome.

Cool looks like it will be backwards compatible with existing cards but will use the second row of pins that UHS SDXC cards have to expose a PCIe 3.0 1x interface. While the capacity increase seem huge the current SDXC standard has a max capacity of 2TB so going up to 128 TB is something that isn't a limit issue yet. Wtih SDXC it was a 32GB to 2TB increase which was is a similar size increase (orders of magnitued) to this new one. It is nice to see that there is a SD competator to CFast and CFexpress

With SDXC cards on the market nearing the 2Tb theoretical limit, a new standard makes a lot of sense. Great!

I'm still waiting for even 90 Mbps Pentax write speeds!

Just think of how long it will take to off-load the card!

It looks future proof now. Videographers will like it.

Wow 128 Tb, that's a lifetime's worth of stills, even if you "spray and pray"
