SanDisk Invents 1 Terabyte SD Memory Card Stores More Data Than A Laptop
Sixteen years ago, before the dawn of the smartphone and when the millennium bug was still a buzz word, the world was introduced to the very first 64 megabyte SD card.
In 2014, the 512GB SD card astonished tech enthusiasts as the world's biggest storage memory in SD card format.
The company who created these two inventions is once again attempting a world record with its newest product.
World's Largest SD Card
SanDisk has recently announced a new 1 terabyte SD memory card, the Verge reported. The memory is so large it provides room space greater than standard laptops in the market
The new SD memory card is still in prototype stage and Sandisk has not announced when the product will roll out for consumers worldwide. The possible price range is also still unknown.
Nonetheless, the storage memory card company has confirmed the existence of the device and consumers will most likely be able to purchase one soon.
No other tech company so far, including Samsung which is also well known for its storage memory card products, has any product similar to SanDisk's 1 terabyte SD memory card.
According to Gizmodo, SanDisk made the surprise announcement of their breakthrough product at the Photokina 2016 photography show Tuesday, Sept. 20.
Answering The Needs Of 4K Video And Photography
SanDisk said in a press release that the 1TB card is the company's answer for photograph and video needs that require huge chunks of memory like 4K and 8K footage, 360-degree video and Virtual Reality.
Sam Nicholson, CEO of Stargate Studios and member of the American Society of Cinematographers, said, "Just a few short years ago the idea of a 1TB capacity point in an SD card seemed so futuristic - it's amazing that we're now at the point where it's becoming a reality."
He further added: "High-capacity cards allow us to capture more without interruption, streamlining our workflow, and eliminating the worry that we may miss a moment because we have to stop to swap out cards."
