Lexar unveils 128GB SDXC card 4 January 2011 15:27:30
Memory card maker Lexar has released two new secure digital extended capacity (SDXC) cards as part of its Professional range.
The largest of the two cards comes in a 128GB capacity, the first memory card of its kind to offer such a large amount of storage space, the other has a capacity of 64GB.
Both cards are speed rated at 133x, providing a minimum guaranteed transfer speed of 20MB per second, and feature a Class 10 speed designation.
Lexar said the new cards are designed to cope with the demands of professional digital photography and video recording.
"The professional photography industry is at a point where digital photo- and video-capture methods are converging, meaning that professional shooters need a memory solution with the versatility and reliability to safely store both photos and videos," said Pachi Chen-Wong, senior product marketing manager, Lexar Media.
"The 64GB and 128GB Lexar Professional 133x SDXC cards combine high-speed performance with large capacities to offer solutions for professionals who shoot large volumes of high-resolution images and HD video."
It follows last month's (December's) news that rival memory card maker Sony is releasing three new SD cards.
