What a hefty memory card! Sandisk have announced their 512GB SD Card! I think it was two years ago that the biggest SD card capacity maxed out at 256GB.

Phone capacities (i.e. MicroSD) are a little bit behind. 128GB is currently growing in popularity. It’s amazing to consider how much memory storage and consumption grow hand in hand.

It might be a while till we get some compatibility for such high capacity cards, let alone even having the cards.

Things to consider when buying such cards:

  • Price. These things are usually very expensive. If they’re not, there’s a chance you may have bought a dud/fake.
  • Read and Write speeds. These are reported at 90mb/s write and 95 mb/s transfer. That’s pretty respectable. I think faster than my 64GB Extreme.

2TB is apparently the theoretical limit but reddit disputes that.
