Today at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Western Digital presented the world's fastest 1TB microSD card. This previous unthinkable storage capacity comes on the scene with transmission speeds of up to 160 MB / s. But the SanDisk 1TB microSD card is not the only storage space that generates waves at MWC. Micron also announces its own version, albeit with slower transfer rates. Either way, there are many Nintendo Switch games, GoPro videos or storage for your Android device. More below.
SanDisk 1TB microSD card comes as the world's fastest.
Every year at the Mobile World Congress, we look to see the next major storage release. This year, not disappointed as the Western Digital brand SanDisk describes in detail a new 1
SanDisk will charge $ 449.99 for its 1TB card, a hefty mark assessing pricing for other 256GB and 512GB models on the market today. But if you need some serious storage, this microSD card comes with large transfer rates and plenty of space.
Western Digital cites its 1TB behemoth as delivering speeds up to 160 MB / s. We have seen these speeds earlier from the SanDisk's Extreme series, which peaked at 400 GB.
A 512GB model will also be available in the coming months for $ 199.99 . Both capacities from SanDisk are currently available for pre-ordering today directly from the manufacturer.
Micron also introduces 1TB microSD card
Micron also uses the MWC to introduce its own 1TB microSD card, which lacks in transmission speed when compared to the SanDisk Extreme line. According to today's press release, this model runs at 100MB / s read speeds and 95MB / s when writing data. It's a pretty remarkable step down from SanDisk's promised 160MB / s rate, but you can assume the price will be easier to stomach as well.
The Micron C200 1TB microSD card will be available worldwide in Q2 2019. Final pricing has yet to be announced at the time of this writing.
9to5Toys & # 39; Take
Whew, 1TB are many Nintendo Switch games. But for those who flush around high-end equipment, today's SanDisk news will surely be an attractive option with transfer rates up to 160 MB / s. That said, 1 TB of storage space is great for any mobile user and not convenient for the standard consumer. Hopefully, these prices will continue to fall over time during today's $ 450 MSRP. At which time, it may be more valuable because multiple devices offer support for this level of storage and transfer rates.
