Lexar Unveils 1TB 633x SDXC UHS-I Memory Card

Lexar has announced the launch of its latest flash memory card solution. The company's new Professional 1TB 633x SDXC UHS-I Card will be the world's first 1TB SD card to hit the market. 

The high-capacity memory card features 1TB (terabyte) of storage. In addition, the Class 10 card uses UHS-I tech and offers read speeds of up to 633x (95MB/s) and write speeds up to 70MB/s -- making it a great fit for capturing lots of photos, as well as 1080p and potentially 4K video recordings with mid-range DSLRs and camcorders.

Though previous 1TB SD card prototypes have been showcased by companies like SanDisk, this new model from Lexar is set to become the first 1TB card to actually reach consumers. 

"Almost fifteen years ago, Lexar announced a 1GB SD™ card. Today, we are excited to announce 1TB of storage capacity in the same convenient form factor. As consumers continue to demand greater storage for their cameras, the combination of high-speed performance with a 1TB option now offers a solution for content creators who shoot large volumes of high-resolution images and 4K video," said Joey Lopez, Senior Marketing Manager.

Though the press release mentions an MSRP of $499.99, the 1TB Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I Card is now available for pre-order through B&H for $399.99.
