Microdia outs Xtra Elite 512GB microSD card

Microdia, a company based in San Jose, California has revealed at Computex 2015 their Xtra Elite microSD card with a capacity of 512GB.

Back in March, SanDisk introduced its 200GB microSD card which it claims, at that time, as the world’s highest capacity microSD card. The claim is short-lived though as Microdia has recently introduced the Xtra Elite microSDXC SD4.0 UHS-II 512GB card.

The Microdia Xtra Elite claims read/write speeds of up to 300MB/s. Coupled with a large memory capacity, this card is obviously aimed at devices that shoot a ton of 4K videos and high-res photos.

As for the price, CNET reports that it will cost around $1,000 (almost Php45,000) and will launch in July. To put the price into perspective, SanDisk’s 200GB microSD card costs Php18,000. You can even buy a 64GB iPhone 6 (Php42,000) for that amount.

      most devices that support microsdxc (64Gb) can read that… di lang nakalagay sa marketing or spec list kasi wala naman available cards pa na ganun kalaki… SD is a standard.. like USB.. so you make a new device that uses USB, gagana yan sa lahat ng USB port.. ganun din SD (or any standard).. :)

    This is too expensive. All that high cost is due to R&D on the new technology. Now, we wait for the price to go down significantly, given the cost to manufacture should be a lot cheaper than HDDs. Just needed time (several years) for these to be mass produced and used in our devices and laptops. But then the problem is the read/write speed is still slow as compared to our HDDs.
