New Spec for SDXC Foretells 2TB Memory Cards


The SD Association recently announced a new card spec called SDXC (short for extended capacity) that will be able to support up to 2TB of memory with read/write speeds of 104MB/second.

If what they say is true, then that means that one of these SD cards will be able to store 100 high-def movies, 60 hours of HD recording or 17,000 high-resolution photos on a portable device.

Keeping in mind that this is still simply a spec, not an actual product, it’s feasible that we’ll see products based off of this as early as next year. And with memory of this capacity in such a small package, it’s possible that this could help the industry as a whole.
