Transcend announced their brand new memory card – 128GB Class 10 SDXC memory card!
According to Transcend, such a massive memory card can store 32 hours(!) of Full HD footage or over 8,000 raw images. This is a Class 10 SD card, which means it promises write speeds of at least 10MB/s and up to 16MB/s.
It will cost (initially) $169.
Here’s a part of Transcend’s press release:
Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the company’s first 128GB SDXC memory card. Perfect for consumers who need vast storage space and high-speed performance, Transcend’s new 128GB Ultimate Series Class 10 SDXC cards boast an incredible amount of storage capacity for extended Full HD video recording, and help improve camera response with ultra fast transfer rates up to 22MB/s.
To meet the increasing capacity demands of professional-quality photos and videos, Transcend’s SDXC cards provide an enormous 128GB of storage space. Each 128GB SDXC card can store a full 32 hours of 1080p High-Definition footage (based on 1920×1080 9Mbps H.264 AVC compression) or over eight thousand high-megapixel RAW images (based on 14MB total size), eliminating the need to pause and switch memory cards during recording sessions or photo shoots. Additionally, with the use of the exFAT file system that supports files larger than 4GB, today’s professional photographers and videographers can enjoy prolonged periods of burst-mode shooting and nonstop 1080p HD or even 3D video recording.
Optimized for use with today’s high-performance equipment, Transcend’s Ultimate 128GB SDXC cards fully comply with the SD 3.0 Class 10 speed rating, which guarantees write speeds of at least 10MB/s. However, thanks to their use of premium quality NAND flash chips, these cards can achieve extraordinarily fast read/write speeds of up to 22/16MB per second. This not only allows users of digital single lens reflex cameras (DSLR) and HD camcorders to easily capture fast-moving subjects in stunning detail, but also greatly reduces wait time when copying, saving or uploading stored content.
