Lexar breaks out 1 TB SDXC memory card

• by Paul Ridden

Lexar is looking to ease storage anxiety by revealing the Professional 633x SDXC UHS-1 card, which crams in a terabyte of solid state memory.

Demonstrating just how far portable storage has come in a few short years, Lexar says that it was only 15 years ago that it launch a 1 GB SD card. The company has pitched its latest high capacity memory card at the slots of mid-range DSLR, HD camcorders and 3D cameras.

The Class 10 space monster makes use of UHS-1 technology to deliver read speeds of up to 95 MB/s, but the V30/U3 rating only promises a minimum sequential write speed of 30 MB/s. Still, that should be enough for 4K recording and playback and the capture of a good many RAW photos without complaint.
