With mobile content consumption rapidly increasing, it has become very important to offer solutions that make mobile content consumption easy with higher storage capacities and faster transfer speeds. Western Digital Corporation is doing just that with the new industry-leading solution that enables consumers to store and consume more data conveniently. The company announced 400GB Sandisk Extreme UHS-1 microSDXC card at the Mobile World Congress on the 26th of February. This demonstrates the possibilities of flash memory in the near future and is designed to deliver ultimate performance that will soon be required as the files sizes increase.
The new 400GB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card form the company offers transfer speeds up to a staggering 160MB/s which makes it more than 50% faster than the current generation SanDisk Extreme UHS-1 microSDXC cards. The card will also come with the A2 technology which optimizes the performance to help load the apps faster.
Jim Welsh, senior vice president, and general manager, Client Solutions, Western Digital said,
“Consumers expect an increasingly better mobile experience, and with our 3D NAND technology, we are pushing the boundaries of innovation to enable them to create and enjoy more rich content on their devices. Our expertise in flash memory and microSD card electronics enables us to achieve unmatched performance. The breakthrough SanDisk microSD card is evidence of Western Digital’s commitment to delivering more advanced solutions that enable data to thrive”
The company is also exhibiting its new platform to enable the memory cards to use the PCIe standards which can further enhance the performance.
Talking about the same, the company exclaims that the technology can now be demonstrated to boost the performance of SD cards. This kind of high speeds become essential when you have to record videos at 8K resolution or while recording super-slow-motion videos where the read-write performance of the microSD cards is benchmarked. The PCIe technology has generally been reserved for high-performance data center system and have capabilities of reaching speeds up to 985MB/s
