The 512GB Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I is introduced as the world's highest capacity SD card

The latest addition to SanDisk’s Extreme Pro class of memory cards has been announced and it is no ordinary deal because the new 512GB Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I is the world’s first SD card with this much capacity and also supports 4K video with write speeds up to 90 MB/s and UHS Speed Class 3 recording on top of a pretty speedy transfer rate of 95 MB/s. When it will be available for sale it will cost $799.99.

The 512GB Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I was announced at the International Broadcasting Convention in AMSTERDAM on September 11th. Having been successfully established as the global leader in flash storage solutions, it comes as no surprise that SanDisk was able to bring to us the world's highest capacity SD card. This has been designed exclusively for the needs of the industry professionals and this is going to provide them a platform which gives everything including shooting 4K Ultra High Definition (3840x2160p) video, Full HD video (1920x1080)1 and high-speed burst mode photography.

Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product marketing, SanDisk, said "As an industry leader, SanDisk continues to push the boundaries of technology to provide customers with the innovative, reliable, high-performance solutions they have come to expect from us. 4K Ultra HD is an example of a technology that is pushing us to develop new storage solutions capable of handling massive file sizes. The 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I card is a tremendous advancement that enables professionals to reliably store more content on a single card than ever before."

If we can recall, the first 512MB SD card by SanDisk was introduced back in 2013 and ever since then the demand for larger storage capacities has been increasing tremendously and with this new 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I card, SanDisk has managed to cover a gap of 1,000-fold capacity in just a decade and the surprising part is that it still maintains its same size footprint. The new SD Card comes as the most powerful of its time and with the highest storage and fastest transfer speeds of up to 90 MB/s.

The reason why the disk is perfect for the corporate world is because it has been designed and built in a way that supports the business environment. It has been built for and tested in harsh conditions and in order to facilitate this it has multiple features including temperature proof, water proof, shock proof, and x-ray proof. Apart from that it also comes with a lifetime warranty.
