SanDisk Corporation ha annunciato la memory card di tipo SDXC (Secure Digital Extended Capacity) più veloce al mondo: il prodotto è siglato SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I ed è disponibile in due capacità, pari nei due casi a 64GB e 128GB (cfr. l'immagine che segue).
In accordo al produttore, le nuove memory card SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I (certificate UHS Speed Class 1) sono capaci di esibire una velocità di trasferimento dei dati che, sia in lettura che in scrittura, può raggiungere il valore massimo di 45MB/S: simili performance rendono le nuove SDXC idonee per la memorizzazione delle fotografie ad alta risoluzione e la cattura dei video in Full HD 3D in tempo reale.
SanDisk ha anche reso noti gli MSRP per le due SDXC, che il maker ha peraltro già spedito ai distributori di tutto il mondo: essi sono pari a $199.99 per la variante da 64GB e a $399.99 per quella da 128GB.

SanDisk Corporation, a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, today introduced the 128 gigabyte (GB) SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I card. The new card is ideal for photography enthusiasts capturing Full HD 3D videos and high-resolution photos.
Video Recording Drives Growth of User-Generated Content
Advanced DSLR cameras and HD camcorders enable imaging enthusiasts to capture Full HD 1080p videos, even in 3D. According to IDC, user-generated video from digital cameras and flash memory-equipped camcorders will increase more than 50 percent, from 4 exabytes in 2011 to 6.8 exabytes in 2014.
"Consumer video capture is driving user-generated content creation," said Chris Chute, research manager, worldwide digital imaging solutions, IDC. "This is the first year that more than half of all video captured will be in HD, and that number is set to reach nearly 80 percent in 2014. This trend highlights the need for memory cards that are fast enough to handle a massive data flow while offering enough capacity to store the resulting files."
The 128 GB SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I card is based on the new Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) architecture and is designed to capture hours of top-quality video footage. The card's UHS Speed Class 1 rating surpasses the recording requirements of demanding video use cases—from home movies captured on a DSLR to high-quality 3D footage.
"Five minutes of Full HD video can consume one gigabyte of storage space," said Susan Park, director, product marketing, SanDisk. "Our new SanDisk Extreme SDXC card can capture up to ten hours of Full HD 3D video, enough to film an entire day here at the Consumer Electronics Show."
The SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I card is designed to help imaging enthusiasts shoot like the pros, with the speed and capacity needed to capture not only high-quality videos but also high-resolution RAW+JPEG photos, which can reach up to 30 megabytes in size.
Faster Shot-to-Shot Performance, Faster File Transfers
The SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I card features up to 45 MB/sec read/write speeds, enabling photographers to capture sequences of high-resolution photos using their camera's burst mode and then quickly transfer the files to a computer.
The card's fast shot-to-shot performance lets photographers capture the images that matter most to them—whether using a point-and-shoot camera to take photos of a young child's first steps or a DSLR to capture a high school track star racing across the finish line. The card's fast file-transfer speed lets photographers offload an hour-long Full HD video in five minutes or a batch of 500 high-resolution photos in as little as one minute.
The SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I card is backed by SanDisk's reputation for quality—professional photographers trust SanDisk. The card provides consumers with the reliability and durability they need to capture photos anytime, anywhere, and includes a built-in write-protect switch to help prevent accidental data loss. For added protection, the card includes a one-year downloadable offer for RescuePRO Deluxe data recovery software (a $59.99 value), which can bring accidentally deleted images back to life.
The 64 GB and 128 GB SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I cards are shipping worldwide with MSRPs of $199.99 and $399.99 respectively.
