Toshiba presents super speed memory cards

Toshiba, one of the most famous tech companies and inventor of flash memory, has presented two new memory cards that offer unprecedented speed and have every right to be called the world’s fastest microSD cards.

The new cards are the first to comply with the UHS-II interface standard and fully meet the requirements of UHS Speed Class 3 (U3), which means that they can write 4K video at minimum write speeds of 30 MB/sec. This means that the new cards can record 4K2K video, live broadcast and content with no problems.

Currently there are two models available – with capacities of 32 GB and 64 GB. The 32 GB model offers 260 MB/sec of read speed and 240 MB/sec of write speed, while the 64 GB model offers a maximum read speed of 145 MB/sec and maximum write speed of 130 MB/sec. The numbers alone show 8x write speed improvement and 2.7x read speed improvement when compared to current Toshiba microSD UHS-I cards.

The new Toshiba cards will reach the mass market by summer 2014. The pricing of the two newcomers is unknown at the moment.
