Flash memory giant SanDisk announced this morning that it has created its highest capacity SD (secure digital) card ever: one that contains 64GB of storage.

The card is classified under the newest speed rating, a class 4 designation. The official name for the media type is SDXC. Not all devices will accept such a high-capacity card, which is why it has a different designation.

SDXC is the next-generation of SD media, following SDHC (secure digital high capacity). "The 64GB SanDisk Ultra SDXC card delivers the speed and capacity consumers need for extended HD video recording and improved rapid shooting of still images. The card is an ideal complement for recently-announced SDXC-compatible cameras and camcorders," said SanDisk's director of retail marketing, Susan Park.

So far, Canon has announced support for SDXC for its new line of VIXIA camcorders, SanDisk's own accessories will support it, and it is expected to be adopted in the next round of GPS units, TVs, computers, and other devices that can handle large amounts of media.

The card is available now, at a steep early-adopter price of $349.99
