8 Comments

Toshiba Corp this week put on sale 8 gigabyte (GB), 16GB and 32GB SDHC UHS-I Cards, all compliant with the SD Memory Card Standard Ver. 3.0 (SD 3.0), UHS 104, that deliver the world's fastest data read and write speeds. Toshiba also unveiled the world's first microSDHC UHS-I Cards delivering 4GB, 8GB and16GB capacities.

Mass production of the new SDHC UHS-I Cards and sample shipments of the new microSDHC UHS-I Cards will start this November.

The new SDHC UHS-I Cards are the world's first memory cards compliant with SD 3.0, UHS104, and introduce a new level of ultra-fast read and write speeds to NAND flash based memory cards: a maximum read speed of 95MB per sec, and a write speed of 80MB per sec.

The new microSDHC UHS-I Cards are the world's first microSDHC memory cards compliant with SD 3.0, UHS50, and they also offer the world's fastest read and write speeds in their class: a maximum read speed of 40MB per sec and a write speed of 20MB per sec.

Image shooting and sharing applications continue to grow in popularity, spurring demand for storage devices and applications that can capture high quality images and videos. The new SD 3.0 specifications meet strong demand in the SD card market and combine increased data capacity with the fast data transfer rates essential for such applications as burst shooting with digital single lens reflex cameras and other advanced digital still cameras, HD digital camcorders, and high speed transfers of data between hardware.

i dont believe there is anything in that article to indicate that these will not work with a solid state hard drive. i only interpreted it as saying that with flash devices it will be able to reach its max speeds. mayhap im wrong mayhap i aint.

When I bought my Xacti a few years ago, 8GB SD Memory Cards from Toshiba were going for close to Y10,000; I got one via Amazon from Taiwan for less than 1/4 the price, the biggest price gap I'd ever seen. Still works fine.

Very useful for new SLR's And it's megabytes, not megabits, right?
