Hello, Mi Fans! How are you all?

Friends, As our portable electronic devices keep getting sophisticated and more capable of performing complex tasks, the data storage is needed. Memory cards that are both spacious and speedy are becoming increasingly important as smartphone cameras become more advanced and are capable of capturing high-megapixel RAW photos and 4K-resolution videos. There, you need a storage unit that writes data at ultra-fast speed. Well, meet the new  400GB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card which is your solution for that matter!

Few Days ago, At Mobile World Congress 2018, SanDisk released this world’s fastest UHS-I flash memory card which is about 50% faster than the existing UHS-I microSD cards from the company itself. Let's dive deeper to learn features of this card but before that let's go through some basics.

What are SD, SDHC, SDXC Cards?
  • SD, SDHC and SDXC speak to the cards available capacity first and foremost. When considering the size necessary for your photography or videography, your storage device will be your ultimate determinant. Obviously a flash card with a lower capacity will hold less videos and photos, which is pretty straight forward.

  • SD stands for Secure Digital Card. They are the cards you normally use in your Mobiles and Smartphones.

  • To go the next step up to a more prevalent storage option, especially for photography enthusiasts and weekend photo shoots, is SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity). SDHC cards can allow for capacities of up to 32GB, and transfer speeds of up to 42 MB/s. If you are looking to shoot video in a higher resolution, then you will find yourself looking one step further with SDXC (Secure Digital Xtended Capacity). SDXC can allow for capacities greater than 32GB, and have a maximum write speed of up to 95 MB/s.
  • SDXC stands for Secure Digital eXtended Capacity cards which are more than 13 times faster than SDXC card plus they are available in bigger capacity.

Here in this thread we will more learn about SanDisk SDXC card, Western Digital at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona just few days ago  unveiled the new 400GB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card that is touted to be the world's fastest UHS-I flash memory card. Let's learn about this awesome device a little more.

  • The new card boasts read speeds up to 160MB/s. The write speed is comparatively slower as 90MB/s. The read speed is over 50% faster than SanDisk’s current lineup of Extreme UHS-I microSD cards. SanDisk says that it has been made possible with the help of Western Digital’s proprietary technology. This high-speed becomes more crucial in today’s times due to 4K/8K video recordings on cameras and drones.

  • SanDisk Extreme UHS-I 400 GB card will allow the apps to launch and load apps at super-fast speed, thanks to the support for the new A2 specification. This specification was introduced to deal with app installations in memory cards in a better manner which demands a minimum random read speeds of 4,000IOPS, a minimum random write of 2,000IOPS, and a minimum sustained read speed of 10MB/s to help launch and load apps at blazing speeds.
  • The microSD card also features a durable body, which allows it to be safe from x-ray, water, dust, and shock hazards.The company also showcased an experimental PCIe SD card with whopping 880MBps speeds.

  • Western Digital has used its proprietary 3D NAND technology to deliver faster speeds. Also, the microSD card is based on the Application Performance Class 2 (A2) specification that is acclaimed to help launch and load apps quickly - targeting smartphone users. The new microSD card additionally features a solid build that is shock-proof and temperature-proof as well.
  • These speeds are essential for high-resolution content applications such as super-slow-motion video, RAW continuous burst mode and 8K video capture and playback. PCIe has traditionally been reserved for use in high-performance data center systems, where the single-lane PCIe Gen 3.0 standard specifications denote capabilities of achieving speeds of up to 985MB/s.
  • Also, a copy of the RescuePRO Deluxe data recovery software is provided to the owner to recover any files that are accidentally deleted.

What The Officials Say About It?
  • Jim Welsh, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Client Solutions, Western Digital, said:
    Consumers expect an increasingly better mobile experience, and with our 3D NAND technology, we are pushing the boundaries of innovation to enable them to create and enjoy more rich content on their devices. Our expertise in flash memory and microSD card electronics enables us to achieve unmatched performance. The breakthrough SanDisk microSD card is evidence of Western Digital’s commitment to delivering more advanced solutions that enable data to thrive.
  • The Company says :
    ideal for recording outdoor adventures, weekend trips, or sporting events without skipping frames. The 400GB1 SanDisk Extreme microSD UHS-I card lets you capture uninterrupted 4K UHD and Full HD video with its UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) and Video Speed Class 30 (V30) ratings.

Take a Look At This Awesome Innovation in Action :

So, friends, Indeed it's an awesome card for those who thrives for storage. Now a days speed is concern for many among us. That's reason why people buy even 6 GB Ram Smartphones. And indeed this is the fastest card ever. How much did you like this cool new innovation? What do you think guys about it? Comment in Comment Box So I can know that.
