Lexar reveals 1TB SD card

Lexar has announced at CES 2019 that its whopping one terabyte (1TB) SDXC card is now available to buy.

Designed for midrange DSLRs, HD camcorders or 3D cameras, Lexar's new card allows shutterbugs to capture 1080p full-HD, 3D and 4K video, with transfer speeds of up to 95MB per second.

The card costs $499, and is available to purchase.

The company claims read speeds of up to 95MB/s and write speeds up to 70MB/s, though with a V30/U3 rating we should probably expect sustained performance closer to the 30MB/s the standard guarantees. It is rated Class 10, UHS speed class 3, and video speed class 30.

"Today, we are excited to announce 1TB of storage capacity in the same convenient form factor", said Joey Lopez, Senior Marketing Manager.

We've been hearing about 1TB SD cards for a couple of years now, with SanDisk showing off a prototype card back in September 2016.

You might be about to comment that SanDisk was in fact the first firm to show off a 1TB SDXC card; you'd be right, but that memory card never made it to market, so by that metric Lexar was the first.

Apart from the 1TB card, Lexar's current portfolio includes Solid State Drives, CompactFlash cards, flash drives, and card readers.
