Integral Memory’s newest microSD card can store up to half-terabyte of data, so far the largest capacity achieved by a minuscule memory format. As a recap, SanDisk’s large capacity microSD card unveiled last year only packs 400GB under the hood. However, SanDisk’s 400GB is still a bit faster at 100MB/s compared to Integral Memory’s 512GB card which only tops out at a maximum speed of 80MB/s. Nevertheless, the performance will surely still be top of the class.
Integral Memory’s microSD card meets the Video Speed Class 10 (V10) standards, guaranteed to deliver fast data transfer and capturing Full HD video on devices quicker and more reliable.
“Consumers have been clear in their call for increased storage, as mobile devices have become essential to many in everyday life,” commented James Danton, marketing manager for Integral Memory, via Bussiness Wire. “The need to provide extended memory for smartphones, tablets and a growing range of other mobile devices such as action cams and drones has been answered. As a company, we are very proud to be the first to achieve the 512GB capacity milestone in microSDXC, worldwide”.
The microSD card will be available next month, but the price is currently undisclosed. Notwithstanding, it is certainly not cheap (SanDisk’s 400GB microSD card is priced at $249.99). So if you are planning to get one, try your best not to lose it.
