The SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC series just got a new member, a massively impressive 512GB SD card that’s capable of recording videos at 4K ultra HD resolution. The freshly baked memory chip is accompanied by a 64GB Extreme Pro microSDXC card which has also gone on sale in India.
Both SD cards are designed for professional use and will provide photographers with the needed memory performance to complement their gear. The 512GB SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I is a top of the line chip from the company and it has the highest capacity as compared to counterparts in the market.
Aside from being able to deliver snappy read and write speeds of up to 90MB/s and 95MB/s, respectively, the card is designed to operate at its full potential in harsh environments as it’s temperature proof, waterproof, shockproof and x-ray proof. There’s also lifetime warranty on the chip and why not, considering that it costs Rs 51990 a pop.
Then we have the SanDisk Extreme Pro microSDXC UHS-1 card with 64GB storage which is being touted as the world’s fastest in its category.
