It’s a new memory card by Kingston.Kingston 64GB SDXC UHS-1 is Class 10 Memory Card…..
Remember when the SDXC memory card format was formally revealed by the SD Association a couple years ago? Well, the actual products are slowly filtering into the marketplace, including a 64GB offering from Kingston Technology. Whereas other competitors like Panasonic have released their 32GB and 64GB SDXC cards, Kingston is playing catch up with their 64GB SDXC UHS-1 Class 10 card. Just like SDHC before it, SDXC is not backwards compatible.
This means that you’ll have to go through a whole new upgrade process all over again, starting with your camera or camcorder (or whatever else) and moving into the card reader too. It uses the newer exFAT system, which is why it won’t work with SDHC readers.
Kingston is proud to bring an SDXC card to market that helps users of compatible high-end digital cameras and camcorders realize the full potential of their equipment. The SDXC card allows continuous high-speed burst shooting in RAW format and hours of hi-def recording,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “Adding the new SDXC card to our portfolio of Flash products paves the way for our network of resellers to meet market demand for photo and video applications as well as future generations of consumer products.
The Kingston SDXC card is compliant with the SDA Memory Card Standard Version 3.01, UHS-1. UHS-1 stands for Ultra-High Speed Bus 1, which is the new architecture of SDXC cards designed to reach speeds up to a maximum transfer rate of 104MB/sec, and 300MB/sec. SDXC cards utilize the exFAT file system and are not backwards compatible with SDHC or SD cards. These cards offer speeds up to 60MB/sec. and write speeds of up to 35MB/sec
Even though there are very few devices which use SDXC card currently, there are many devices such as HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc players, navigation devices, mobile phones and computers which might use this technology in future.
The SDXC card on display looked like someone slapped a cutout from a printer the night before.
The Kingston 64GB SDXC UHS-1 Class 10 will be available at the end of June for $499.00.
