SanDisk's flash flurry Featured

Flash storage specialist SanDisk has announced a flurry of new consumer products, including the "world's fastest 64GB microSDXC card."

SanDisk's latest product announcements include microSD cards, SSDs and USB 3.0 thumb drives.

The new SanDisk Extreme microSDHC and microSDXC (pictured) are offered in capacities ranging from 16GB ($69) to 64GB ($249). A full-size SD adaptor is included (though only recommended for use with computers, as it does not allow the card to reach its full write speed in a camera), along with a downloadable copy of RescuePro Deluxe for recovering accidentally deleted images.

The microSDXC versions provides read speeds of up to 80MBps and write speeds up to 50MBps. This level of performance is required to keep up with the shooting speeds and image sizes used by the latest cameras, explained country manager George Saad.

Slower cards cannot keep up with devices that can take high megapixel shots at up to 30 times per second, which results in dropped frames. So SanDisk is working with device manufacturers and local retailers to guide customers towards memory cards with the specifications needed to capture every image, he said.

Using the wrong memory card in a high performance camera or other mobile device is like fitting the wrong tyres to a sports car and then wondering why it won't corner well, Mr Saad suggested.
