01/09/2012, [CES 2012] Bigger is better, right? That is what SanDisk believes when it comes to flash memory storage, and hence they have announced the 128GB SDXC memory card which has enough space to stash away up to 10 hours of Full HD 3D video, which is more than enough to film through an entire sitting of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy (standard edition), leaving some room to goof around […]
06/29/2011, We are rather wary when a particular manufacturer claims that their handset is the thinnest in the world, or in this case, Delkin with their 64GB SDXC UHS-I memory card which is touted to be the “fastest in the world”. The new 64GB 633X rated card was specially built for streaming HD and 3D video applications, where it is able to hit speeds of up to 45MB/s and read at […]
01/06/2011, You can’t say that the SD Association isn’t keeping up with the times. A good seven months after the association revealed the UHS-I specifications, it’s back again with the UHS-II bus-interface system that promises high-definition recording speeds of up to 312MB/s, allowing professionals to consider an SDHC or SDXC-based camera instead of having to rely on CompactFlash or SSD drives.
01/03/2011, [CES 2011] Lexar will be unveiling their upcoming SDXC card at CES 2011 this week, and will be putting them on sale later this quarter. Targeted at professionals, Lexar’s SDXC memory cards will have capacities of 64GB and 128GB. With most consumer devices now only supporting up to 32GB SD cards, it’s probably going to be awhile before these cards become standard, but for now they will remain as products […]
12/22/2010, PQI is jumping into the next generation SDXC memory card format, which is based on the SD card format and resembles an SD card, but would allow up to 2 TB worth of storage on a postage-sized memory card though 2 TB SDXC storage still has not yet been accomplished. For its part, PQI is launching a 64 GB SDXC card, which is rated as a class 10 card. The […]
09/16/2010, You might not even have 47 different types of flash cards in your home, but the folks over at Elecom probably think it’s better to be safe than sorry, which could be the reason they came up with the MR-A005 and MR-A006 memory card readers. The design itself is pretty common, but it’s one of the few multi-card readers out there that support SDXC memory cards, and it’s touted to […]
09/03/2010, The SD Association has ushered in the future of SDHC and SDXC memory card, where it recently unveiled a new memory card design that will enable superior data transfer speed compared to what is on the market today. This new design will rely on a dual-row pin layout that enables the bus speed to touch up to 300 Mbps in either format, and best of all is this – it […]
06/23/2010, The SD Association recently introduced a couple of new high-speed performance symbols for both SDXC and SDHC memory cards as well as supporting devices, with the former identifying devices with a new “ultra high speed” bus-interface performance while the latter identifies SD memory cards and products that are able to support real-time video recording. Needless to say, these new performance symbols can only be found on SDXC and SDHC products […]
06/18/2010, When the refreshed Apple Mac mini was announced earlier this week, there was no mention on the type of memory card which will be supported. It seems that even the new SDXC memory card format was supported, where it is capable of offering up to 2TB of storage space, not to mention faster bus speeds. Sounds like a nice little surprise, don’t you think so?
02/23/2010, SanDisk has started to ship its 64GB Ultra SDXC memory card, making it the highest capacity SD memory card from the memory manufacturer, where this little piece of silicon is able to deliver up to 15MB/sec read speed and Class 4 speed rating. Capable of capturing and storing long stretches of 1080p High Definition video files, transferring them over to a computer can also be done in a jiffy since […]
01/20/2010, Panasonic has just released its 48GB and 64GB SDXC memory cards alongside a USB card reader which is capable of handling the SDXC format with aplomb. You will find that both cards come in the Class10 speed range, enabling it to hit a whopping 22MB/sec. The 48GB card is capable of storing slightly more than half a dozen hours of full HD video footage in AVCHD format, while the larger […]
01/13/2010, Remember the SDXC memory cards that we looked at last year? Having being announced at CES 2009 (did you notice that those guys at the SDXC booth this year used the same banner as last year’s?), both Panasonic and Toshiba are very close to rolling out their first SDXC memory cards to the mass market. Utilizing newly raised ceilings on capacity in order to hit the magical 64GB mark while […]
11/30/2009, Notebook manufacturers Dell, HP and Lenovo could soon release their new 32nm notebooks that run on mobile Core i3, i5 and i7 processors to be equipped with an SDXC memory card slot in order to keep up with the times, offering the option for such notebooks to recognize up to 2TB of data within while boasting phenomenal theoretical transfer speeds of up to 300MB per second. If you really need […]
08/05/2009, Sony’s Memory stick is keeping up with its SD counterpart by finalizing its Memory Stick XC format that can reach 2TB in capacity, just like the SDXC cards. In the meantime, don’t pay attention to theoretical performance numbers like 480Mbps – in the real world, they don’t mean much, and we’ll have to look at independent benchmarks. What’s important for Sony users is that there is a path to 2TB. […]
