SanDisk Announces UHS-I SD Cards

Posted by at 10:01 am on January 18, 2011

SanDisk on Monday introduced its new line of Extreme Pro SDHC UHS-I memory cards. They meet the Ultra High Speed (UHS) SD 3.0 specification that allows them to reach 45MBps read and write speeds. Also supported is the UHS Speed Class 1 video rating that guarantees 10MBps minimum sustained write speeds capable of recording 1080p videos or even 3D content.

Aim at DSLR cameras which support the new card standard, the cards will support fast burst speeds when shooting RAW images. The cards are also waterproof, temperature-proof, shock- and vibration-proof and x-ray-and magnet-proof. Longevity is said to be a strong point thanks to a controller that more effectively distributes data and prevents the card from being worn out prematurely.

Three capacities are available today, including an 8GB card for $101, a 16GB version for $160 and a 32GB version for $300.

The SanDisk Extreme Pro ExpressCard Adapter, designed for high performance SDHC and SDXC UHS-I cards, is available at www.sandisk.com for $49.99.
