As the world consume more and more high resolution contents, it is rather natural that photo and video professionals face the need to obtain storage solutions that able to keep up with such demands. Such need has driven SanDisk to come out with higher capacity flash storage and it has done just that by announcing the 1TB SDXC memory card at the on-going Photokina 2016.
Believed to be the biggest SD card in the world, the unveiling of the 1TB card takes place just two years after SanDisk introduced its Extreme Pro 512GB SDXC UHS-1 memory card to the world. While the card might be targeted at professionals that are working with high resolution contents, SanDisk which was recently acquired by Western Digital believed that the card is also suitable for 360 video production, virtual reality, and video surveillance.
As interesting as this news might be, the 1TB SDXC card is still in prototype form at the moment which means that SanDisk still don’t have any release or pricing information for it. In fact, the company didn’t even reveal any technical details regarding the card but judging from the press photos, the card is part of Extreme Pro series which is the company’s high-performance line-up.
We are quite sure that the card will have a hefty price tag anyway, given how the Extreme Pro 512GB SDXC card already costs more than RM 1,000 at the moment. So, start saving up.
