128 or 256 GB is never enough when you’re in love with your smartphone’s camera, right? The SD Association brings the best news at MWC Shanghai 2018 for storage fanatics – it’s called SD Express Standard.
Next year, the legacy SD interface will get the popular PCI Express and NVMe interfaces, which translate to much bigger storage and much faster transfers. Just how so?
SD memory cards in 2018 will go from 2TB to a whopping 128 TB with the new SD Ultra Capacity (SDUC) card.
As for transfer speeds, video enthusiasts shooting in 8K or 360 degrees will rejoice to hear that the PCIe interface will deliver up to 985 MB per second transfer rate!
“With SD Express we’re offering an entirely new level of memory card with faster protocols turning cards into a removable SSD,” said Hiroyuki Sakamoto, SDA president. Even better, the SD Express Standard will provide backward compatibility and is part of the new SD 7.0 specification.
