SanDisk revealed a prototype of a one-terabyte SDXC card that will help ensure your camera never runs out of space for photos or videos.
Western Digital, SanDisk’s parent company, dropped the one terabyte bomb at the Photokina 2016 photography show, and it comes just a couple of years after revealing a 512 GB SDXC card at the same event.
The storage giant unveiled what it calls the “world’s first” 1TB SD card, The SDXC card is only a prototype at this point, with no details available on price or release date, but it’s still an impressive milestone.
Since the introduction of the record-breaking 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO® SDXC UHS-I Memory Card at Photokina 2014, Western Digital has proven it can nearly double the capacity in the same SD card form factor using proprietary technology. Higher capacity cards expand the possibilities for professional videographers and photographers, giving them even greater ability to create more of the highest quality content, without the interruption of changing cards.
Western Digital hasn’t shared read or write speeds, probably because they’re not going to be amazing on such a high capacity card, especially when it’s in the prototype stage.
