SanDisk Corp. on Tuesday announced the SanDisk Extreme microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-I memory cards that board the highest performance in the world to date. The new memory cards are designed to provide fast read and write capabilities along with expanded storage space to the newest smartphones, tablets and cameras.

“The SanDisk Extreme microSDXC card allows users to do more with their devices. Our high-performance and high-capacity microSD cards enable consumers to take advantage of the high-quality HD video and imaging capabilities in the latest 4G smartphones, tablets and action cameras,” said Susan Park, director of retail product marketing at SanDisk.

The microSDXC card provides up to 80MB/s read and up to 50MB/s write speeds, allowing faster shot-to-shot performance, rapid data transfer, fast action photography, continuous burst mode and quick file transfers. The cards provide up to 64GB of capacity. The SanDisk Extreme microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-I cards are built for and tested in harsh conditions. They are waterproof, shockproof and resist x-rays.

SanDisk Extreme cards come with an adapter for compatibility with full size SD/SDHC/SDXC supporting devices, RescuePro Deluxe data recovery software for bringing accidentally deleted images back to life and a lifetime limited warranty.

SanDisk Extreme microSDHC and microSDXC cards are available worldwide now in 16GB to 64GB capacities carrying MSRPs of $59.99 to $199.99.

The card’s UHS speed class 1 (U1) and speed class 10 video recording ratings ensure users will enjoy higher performance than ordinary memory cards can deliver for full HD and even 4K UHD video recording and playback.

“Most high-end smartphones are now driven by high-speed quad-core processors, which deliver Full HD content and applications to large, high-resolution external displays. Such applications require high memory bandwidth which is ideal for the SanDisk Extreme microSDXC card, the world's fastest microSDXC memory solution,” said Stuart Robinson, director of handset component technologies service at Strategy Analytics.

Yeah, same problem with old 64GB microSD drives. So it's still not fixed...
