You Can Finally Buy A Terabyte SD Card Thanks to Lexar

WD-owned SanDisk was first to show off a 1TB SD card prototype back in 2016, but that never reached the market.

If you're serious about photography, chances are you've got a high-end digital camera such as the Nikon D850 and a few 512GB SD cards for high resolution shots and 4K video storage.

If you shoot a lot of high-definition content but tire of having to stop working to change SD cards, Lexar has a new, mammoth SD card that should make your job easier.

The 1TB SDXC card is from Lexar's Professional 633x range that offers read speeds of up to 95MB/s and write speeds of up 70MB/s.

The Duchess of Sussex joked self-deprecatingly with Lady Juliet Hughes-Hallett, a former editor of Vogue UK, about the incident. She is set to take over two roles from The Queen, who is granting Meghan two of her patronages as a show of support and trust.

This whopper of an SD card comes to us "almost 15 years" after Lexar announced a 1GB option, showing how far the company has come.

To achieve these speeds, the new card leverages class 10 UHS-I technology. Lexar, a brand which Micron chose to kill but then got a second life thanks to Chinese company Longsys, is now willing to sell you a 1TB card. But now, at CES 2019, the first commercially available terabyte SD card is here, thanks to Lexar. So, it has the capacity and speed to transfer 4K video, as well as 1080p and 3D video.

Of course, high-capacity memory products don't come cheap, and the same goes for the new 1TB Professional card that Lexar just unveiled.
