SanDisk reveals world's first 1TB SD card

The new SD card represents 16,000 times the capacity of SanDIsk’s first 64MB product.

SanDisk today showcased its upcoming 1TB SDXC card prototype at a European trade show for photo and video professionals.

"There is no definitive timing for availability as of now," a company spokesperson said in an email to Computerworld. "Western Digital plans to monitor industry trends and demands, and introduce the card in retail accordingly. Price would depend on market conditions at the time it’s released."

SanDisk's current 512GB SD card retails for $345.77 on Amazon.com.

The Western Digital subsidiary, which just two years ago debuted the first 512GB SD card, said doubling the capacity of its Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I Memory Card was necessary to address the increasing demand for high-resolution content, such as 4K and 8K videos, virtual reality and 360-degree videography.

SanDisk's 512GB SD card sells for $345.77 on online retail sites.

"Sixteen years ago we introduced the first SanDisk 64MB SD card and today we are enabling capacities of 1TB. Over the years our goal has remained the same: continue to innovate and set the pace for the imaging industry," SanDisk stated in its news release.

The new 1TB SD card represents more than 16,000 times the capacity of SanDisk's first 64MB SD card.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
