Lexar Releases Gigantic 128 GB SDXC Card

"Lexar Media, a leading global provider of memory products for digital media, today announced new Lexar® Professional Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) memory cards. The new high-capacity Lexar Professional 133x SDXC cards enable the capture, storage, and transfer of extended lengths of 1080p high-definition (HD) video and continuous, rapid-fire image capture in a single, high-performance solution. The Lexar Professional 133x SDXC card is the first available in a 128GB capacity, and is also offered in a 64GB capacity. Both cards are speed rated at 133x, providing a minimum guaranteed transfer speed of 20MB per second, and feature a Class 10 speed designation."

128 GB on an SD card? We all knew it was only a matter of time, but wow, it's still impressive to see. 128 GB memory cards are kind of like 3 TB hard drives...the market for the number of people that truly need that much storage is small, but if you need it, you'll be thrilled to have this much storage in a small package. Oh, it's $699 USD. That might turn off a few people...

Toshiba Crashes Panasonic's SD UHS-I Party With Faster Cards; New Standard Still Confusing

"Panasonic must be mighty annoyed right about now, because Toshiba's seemingly got it trumped -- when the first batch of lightning-quick UHS-I cards ship in November, Toshiba's chips will be faster and larger on day one."

Toshiba is usually second to Panasonic when it comes to SD Card announcements, and so here is their announcement. The new cards are actually faster than what Panasonic has announced, with the full sized SD cards doing 95MB/s read versus Panasonic's 60MB/s read. Writing speed is not shabby at a stated 80MB/s, though we have yet to see how it will be in actual use. There are also microSD versions doing 40MB/s read and 20 MB/s write. Again, remember that the device also has to be UHS-I, else the cards will not perform at their full perfomance.

Transcend Ultimate 64GB Class 10 SDXC Memory Card

Looks like the SDXC cards are slowly trickling out into the market. Transcend has just announced its 64GB Class 10 SDXC cards, but there seems to be no mention of pricing and availability. Ah, the joys of product launches. Press Release at the link.

I'm curious though; is anyone currently using 32GB cards in their digital cameras? Multiple 32GB cards? I'm sure that once prices go down we'll be buying 64GB cards like candy, but there are many days when I don't even touch 2GB on my 8GB cards...
