Toshiba 64GB SDXC Card Is The World’s Largest, Fastest

Toshiba 64GB SDXC Card <strike>Is</strike> The World’s Largest, Fastest

On one hand, it’s great to see the SDXC standard—which theoretically tops out at 2TB—flexing its muscles a little but. On the other, I kinda wish Toshiba wouldn’t announce an SD card six months before release.

Toshiba’s upcoming SDXC line stretches from 16GB to 64GB, with read speeds of 60MB/s (that’s megabytes, folks) and write speeds of 35MB/s. The one we’re really interested in is obvious the 64GB unit, since prior SDXC cards, while fast, haven’t hit capacities beyond what was already available by means of SDHC. And look! Sample shipments for the largest card start arriving in November! That’s great, if you’re an OEM manufacturer. Regular folks will have to wait for “Spring, 2010” to splurge on one of these. Worst of all, the price is still open. [Toshiba]
