Lexar reveals 1TB SD card

CES 2019 Lexar Launches 1TB SD Card Priced at $499.99

Lexar claims the 1TB SD card can offer 95MBps read and up to 70MBps write speeds

Lexar, however, has beaten every other card manufacturer to the punch by revealing its own 1TB SDXC memory card at CES 2019, and it's already on sale. As a comparison, the 512GB version costs US$209.95 (about RM858.69) while the 256GB card is going for US$109.95 (about RM449.69).

SanDisk, years back, showed off a 1TB SD prototype that never managed to make it to market.

"Almost 15 years ago, Lexar announced a 1GB SD card", said Lexar's senior marketing manager Joey Lopez. "As consumers continue to demand greater storage for their cameras, the combination of high-speed performance with a 1TB option now offers a solution for content creators who shoot large volumes of high-resolution images and 4K video". Now, it's been beaten to the punch by Lexar's Professional 633x line of SDHC and SDXC UHS-I cards, which have capacities ranging from 16GB up to 1TB.

The 1TB Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I card is available now at an MSRP of $499.99. Sadly, this is a full-size SD card, so it's too big for smartphones.

The convenience doesn't just come from the space though. This is a V30 card, which Lexar states can achieve up to 95MB/s data transfer speeds, but it is only guaranteed to hit a minimum sequential write speed of 30MB/s.
