microSD memory cards are said to be world’s fastest
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., (Irvine, CA) has introduced what it says is the world’s fastest microSD memory cards. The new cards comply with the UHS-II2 interface standard, the ultra high speed serial bus interface defined in the SD Memory Card Standard Ver. 4.20. Available in 32 GB and 64 GB capacities, the company asserts new microSD memory cards offer the fastest transfer rates available, are UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) enabled, and allow high-quality 4K video capture at constant minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s. The 64 GB cards offer a maximum read speed of 260 MB/s and a maximum write speed of 240 MB/s. The 32 GB cards have a maximum read speed of 145 MB/s and maximum write speed of 130 MB/s, which represents an 8x write speed improvement and 2.7x read speed improvement when compared to Toshiba’s current 32GB microSD UHS-I cards. These faster transfer speeds:
- Reduce the time required to download large data movie and music files to smart phones and tablets.
- Dnable camera users to shoot high resolution digital still images in a continuous high speed shooting mode.
