Many manufacturers are making bigger (and bigger) capacity microSD cards. Take Sandisk, for example, which has unveiled a huge 200GB microSD card back at MWC 2015. However, a California-based company called Microdia has announced an even bigger 512GB microSD card.
Although Microdia has a booth set up at Computex 2015, it didn’t actually have any working sample for attendees. Instead, only the packaging is shown. Seeing how the 512GB Xtra Elite is a microSDXC card, it should work with any device that supports the format.
In terms of specification, the Xtra Elite uses version 4.0 of the Secure Digital standard. Utilising an Ultra High Speed (UHS) bus, it is capable of transfer speed up to 300MB/s. That being said, seeing how Microdia doesn’t even have a working sample yet (for show anyway), we’ll just have to take the company’s word for it.
Not surprisingly, the Microdia Xtra Elite will not come cheap. The company is estimating that it will cost a whopping US$1,000 (about RM3,720), although this is not the final retail price yet. It is set to be released in July 2015.
