The new SanDisk Extreme microSDXC 1TB is a UHS-I memory card offering read speeds up to 160MBs.

Designed for both media and apps, these cards support fast 4K recording, while at the same time are A2 certified for app install support. It offers read speeds of up to 160MB/sec, and write speeds of up to 90MB/sec, although only guarantees V30 (30MB/sec sustained).

microSD cards are small-form versions of the SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards used in regular digital cameras and have become a standard format for drones, action cams and 360 cameras.

The England winger opened the scoring in the second minute at Twickenham when he successfully chased after Elliot Daly's kick. England wrapped up the four try bonus point just before half-time with Henry Slade stepping Matheiu Bastareaud to score.

Although an average user would probably not need 1TB of storage, power users using high-end equipment can definitely benefit from it. The Sandisk's card's announced pricing is $499, which given that the company has also unveiled a new Extreme 512GB card for $199 is quite a hike: a 150% markup for a 100% data increase. Western Digital and Micron have announced UHS-I microSD cards with 1TB storage capacity at MWC 2019 to meet the demand of professionals for higher storage space. Now, you can add an unprecedented amount of storage to your devices, provided there's a microSD card slot. To put things much more simply, though, either option can comfortably store and play your Switch games and you'll be gaining an incredible 1,000 GB of storage in the process. To account for this, Micron and Western Digital (through its SanDisk subsidiary) announced the industry's very first 1-terabyte capacity microSD storage cards for consumers. We can expect these cards to be out in the late Q2 of 2019.

Both sizes are available for pre-order through SanDisk's website now and will release in the coming months.

Write speeds, however, are slightly slower than Micron's card, at 90MB/s. Would you use microSD cards this large?
