SanDisk woke up this morning and decided to blitz the market with a fistful of storage products, including a massive 64GB microSDXC card. The 64GB SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I card doubles the performance and capacity of SanDisk's professional-grade imaging lineup and is based on the latest SD 3.0 specification's Ultra High Speed (UHS) bus architecture.
Read and write speeds are capable of reaching up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively, and is ideal for photographers who want to capture a series of RAW images using burst mode, or videographers interested in recording Full HD videos, SanDisk says. SanDisk is being coy with the pricing, saying that the Extreme Pro SDHC and SDXC UHS-I cards come in 8GB to 64GB capacities starting at $110. Based on current street pricing for similar SanDisk products, the new 64GB card will likely run upwards of $500.
If that's too rich for your blood or is more performance than you need, SanDisk also announced a new 64GB Mobile Ultra microSDXC card. This is a UHS-based card with up to 30MB/s transfer speeds. Pricing starts at $25 for the 4GB version and goes up from there.
SanDisk also rolled out new Cruzer Fit and Cruzer Switch USB flash drives, the latter of which is available in 4GB to 16GB capacities starting at $25, and the latter in 2GB to 32GB capacities starting at $20; SecureAccess software that offers encryption and online backup features (up to 2GB) on nearly all of its retail USB drives; and an ImageMate all-in-one USB 3.0 reader/writer priced at $50.
All new products will ship next month.
