At CES two years ago there was much anticipation when talk arose about SDXC cards with 2TB of storage and 300 MBbps transfers. However this failed to materialize but Lexar Media has now announced Class 10 SDXC cards with 64GB and 128GB.
The news comes to us from Darren Murph over on Engadget, sourced from Lexar, and these two new SDXC (Secure Digital Extended Capacity) memory cards should satisfy many with guaranteed speeds of 133x, 20MB per second. They should be available in the first part of this year and if you head to the Engadget link above you can also see the press release from Lexar.
The 64GB will set you back $399.99 and the 128GB will be priced $699.99 and professional photographers and videographers will receive high-speed performance for their money perfect for capturing, storing and managing 1080p HD video. Senior Product Marketing Manager at Lexar Media, Pachi Chen-Wong said, “The professional photography industry is at a point where digital photo- and video-capture methods are converging, meaning that professional shooters need a memory solution with the versatility and reliability to safely store both photos and videos.”
The latest Image Rescue software is included and the SDXC cards come with a limited lifetime warranty.
