SanDisk - This New Memory Card Can Store 300,000 Photos
Think about this - 85,899,345 full pages of word documents, 17,000 hours of music, 500 hours of movies 728,177,000 floppy disks - SanDisk has revealed the new SD Card prototype; a 1TB memory card at the Photokina 2016 in Cologne, Germany.
4TB hard drives have already been long available in the market - in fact they are already being sold at much lower prices. With hard drives dominating the market and leading the pack for the longest time, a 1TB memory card is surely a new and interesting breakthrough.
Mileage will depend upon the types and sizes of files. For instance, photos with lower quality will allow for more capacity.
Specifically, SanDisk aims to address storage necessities of people who are working on "memory-heavy formats."
SanDisk 1TB SDXC was developed in response to the growing movement of multimedia content to 4K and 8K resolution, 36-degree videos, and VR.
The power memory card will be a bit expensive of course. SanDisk, however, did not mention anything about the price and release date yet. Accordingly, it may still be a few months before the SD card is made available in the stores.
16 years ago, SanDisk released a 64MB SD card.
In 2014, SanDisk also introduced a 512GB Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I memory card.
"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," said Sam Nicholson, the CEO of Stargate Studios.
Certainly, gone are the days when we would fit only a limited number of photos, documents, and tracks in floppy discs. Western Digital, the parent company of SanDisk, has certainly made sure to keep up with the needs of the changing times. It is exciting to keep track of more updates on the company's products and innovation in the coming days.
