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.
