Lexar has made a 1 terabyte SDXC memory card and it is the first card available on the market.
SanDisk was the first company to announced a 1TB SDXC card in 2016, but it was never implemented and has not yet reached store shelves. The new Lexar card is available for sale today.
The new Lexar 1TB 633x SDXC UHS-I card has a read speed of up to 95 MB / s and a write speed of 70 MB / s, although it is rated only V30 / U3, which guarantees a continuous write performance of 30 MB / s.
Lexar Marketing Director Joey Lopez says: “Almost fifteen years ago, Lexar announced a 1GB SD card. Today, we are excited to announce 1TB of storage capacity for the same medium. "As consumers continue to demand more storage for their cameras, the combination of high performance with 1TB option now offers a solution for media creators, capturing large volumes of high-resolution images and 4K video."
With this latest announcement, Lexar returns to memory card manufacturing. Two years ago, the Lexar brand was discontinued by its parent company Micron, before being sold to the Chinese company Longsys, at the end of 2017. Longsys then announced the return of Lexar cards at the end of 2018.
