The Largest SD card Ever!
It’s been 2 years ago that Sandisk had amazed us with the 512 Gb SanDisk SD Card, the Largest SD card at that time. But it seems that SanDisk brand pushes storage even further as it has just introduced a 1 TB SDXC card.
New Technologies New Needs!
The West Digital branch relates this upgrade to the new demand for memory hungry apps and new video formats that need more storage like 4 K, 8 K, 360 ° or even contents intended for virtual reality. Furthermore, this memory card could become the ideal alliance of laptops with a small SSD.
“Sixteen years ago we introduced the first SanDisk 64MB SD™ card and today we are enabling capacities of 1 TB. Over the years our goal has remained the same; continue to innovate and set the pace for the imaging industry. The SanDisk 1 TB SD card prototype represents another significant achievement as a growth of high-resolution content and capacity-intensive applications such as virtual reality, video surveillance, and 360 videos, are progressing at astounding rates.” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product management, Content Solutions Business Unit, Western Digital.
