Companies love to tout nothing but the very best in their products, especially when they want to move a particular model among the masses. Memory cards is one market that does not have that kind of “star power” such as smartphones and digital cameras, but this does not mean that the technology involved should remain stagnant. SanDisk, a world leader in memory cards, has announced what they deem to be the “world’s fastest” SD memory card, which would be the SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC UHS-II.
The SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC UHS-II will be their flagship model where it exceeds the new UHS Speed Class (U3) specifications, where it allows you to enjoy continuous write speeds of up to 250MB/s without missing a beat, which means that it ought to fit in nicely with upcoming 4K camera models which require high speed SD cards to work in tandem. Apart from capturing 4K video with ease on this memory card, it also would work equally well when you are racking up the continuous RAW still counts at high frame rates. Expect the new SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC UHS-II cards to ship later this April, where capacities will range from 16GB all the way to 64GB, with a starting price tag of $120 that maxes out at $300.
