Toshiba fulfills your need for speed with UHS-I SDHC and microSDHC cards
Toshiba has announced what it claims will be the world’s fastest SDHC UHS-I and the world’s first microSDHC UHS-I compliant memory cards.
The SDHC UHS-I cards are available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB and are compliant with the standard SD 3.0 UHS104. Even if Toshiba announces up to 95MB/s for read speed and 80MB/s for write speed, don’t be surprised if get a little bit less in practice.
As for the micro SDHC, they are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities with read and write speeds of up to
45MB/s 40MB/s and 20MB/s. First micro SDHC memory cards compliant with SD 3.0, UHS50, Toshiba says.
The company says mass production of the SDHC UHS-I cards and sample shipments of the new microSDHC UHS-I cards will begin from November 2010.
Mass production of the new SDHC UHS-I cards and sample shipments of the new microSDHC UHS-I cards will start this November.
The new SDHC UHS-I Memory Cards are the world’s first memory cards compliant with SD 3.0, UHS104. With a maximum read speed of 95MB per second, and a write speed of 80MB per second, the products introduce a new level of ultra-fast read and write speeds to NAND flash based memory cards.
Toshiba’s new microSDHC UHS-I cards are the world’s first microSDHC memory cards compliant with SD 3.0, UHS50. They, too, offer the world’s fastest read and write speeds in their class: a maximum read speed of 40MB per second and a write speed of 20MB per second.
The specifications of the new cards combine increased data capacity with the fast data transfer rates essential for applications such as high speed continuous shooting of high resolution digital still cameras, video, and high speed transfers of HD content.
The high performance specifications announced by Toshiba will enable developers to use HD content in future generations of consumer products. By further enhancing the performance of its SD Memory Card line-up, Toshiba continues to lead the NAND flash memory market in removable card storage.
The expanded new card series will be featured at IFA 2010, in Berlin, Germany from September 3, and PHOTOKINA 2010, in Koln, Germany from September 21.
