SanDisk Fastest 400GB MicroSDXC Card

Western Digital Corporation introduced the world's fastest UHS-I flash memory card at the Mobile World Congress. The card is the 400GB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSD UHS-1 card. It is over 50% faster than current SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSD cards. It has read speeds of up to 160mb/s and write speeds of up to 90mb/s. The card will also feature the A2 specification.

Jim Welsh, senior vice president and general manager, Client Solutions, Western Digital, says in the announcement, "Consumers expect an increasingly better mobile experience, and with our 3D NAND technology, we are pushing the boundaries of innovation to enable them to create and enjoy more rich content on their devices. Our expertise in flash memory and microSD card electronics enables us to achieve unmatched performance."

SanDisk's current 400GB MicroSDXC card retails for around $240 so you can expect the faster version to be more expensive when it arrives in stores. The pricing information and release date have not yet been announced.
