First SDXC Card Is The World's Fastest, Only Holds 32GB

Illustration for article titled First SDXC Card Is The Worlds Fastest, Only Holds 32GB

SDXC, the new memory card spec announced at CES, promised exciting things, storage-wise. Pretec demonstrated the first card that'll support the standard, and at a mere 32GB and 50MB/s, well, it's a step.


The SDXC standard claims a maximum capacity of 2TB, with read/write speeds of up to 104MB/s. There's no doubt that, at 50MB/s, Pretec has achieved impressive speeds, but the company probably should have waited until they could put together an SDXC card with a greater actual capacity than existing SDHC products. Still, to see an actual product so soon after the standard was announced is heartening, although Pretec hasn't yet hinted at a price or release date. [Pretec via Impress Watch]
