sandisk_extremepro_microSDWhile the average user might be fine using lower-classed microSD cards, there are some who might demand better performance and might go for Class 10. However these days, devices like cameras have been designed to support even faster microSD card classes like UHS, and if you are a professional in need of that level of performance, SanDisk has you covered.

The company has recently announced their latest Extreme PRO microSDXC UHS-II memory card. For those unfamiliar, UHS-II is currently the fastest/top-of-the-line that you can go, which also means that these cards do not come cheap. However like we said, professionals who might need blazing fast read/write speeds might appreciate them.

In this case, SanDisk’s latest offering should do the trick. The latest card from the company comes in 64GB and 128GB options and will be able to deliver read speeds of up to 275MB/s, and write speeds of up to 100MB/s. Professionals who are trying to capture video in 4K resolution will probably be able to make use of these speeds the best.

However as we have pointed out, UHS-II cards aren’t quite as ubiquitous yet which means that they do not come cheap. The 64GB Extreme PRO is priced at $179.99, while the 128GB model is going for nearly double that price at $299.99. Both microSD cards are also expected to be available worldwide in Q2 2016.
