ADATA launches insanely fast Premier Extreme SDXC SD 7.0 Express Card
Nowadays, professional photographers with high-end camera equipment are embracing CFexpress storage cards more and more. The problem? Those cards are quite expensive. Not to mention, many photographers can get by without the latest-and-greatest. And so, for many photographers -- amateur and professional alike -- good ol' SD cards are still more than fine.
Thankfully, companies are still putting out new SD cards, and today, ADATA launches its latest. Called "Premier Extreme," this SDXC SD 7.0 Express Card comes in two capacities -- 256GB and 512GB. What's most notable about the card, however, is its insane read and write speeds.
"With support for PCIe Gen3x1 and NVMe, the Premier Extreme SDXC SD Express Card delivers read and write performance of up to 800/700 MB/s, which is roughly 1.5 times faster than SATA SSDs. When compared to UHS-II SD and UHS-I SD cards, it's about 2.7 and 8 times faster, respectively. This memory card is backward compatible with the UHS-I devices with read and write speed of up to 100MB/s and conforms to the V30 Video Speed Class," says ADATA.
The company further says, "It can be inserted into digital cameras to take high-quality photos or 4K videos and then inserted into a PC that supports SD 7.0 for seamless editing or playback. The data inside is safe and secure with the Premier Extreme SDXC SD Express Card. It features error correcting code to ensure data accuracy. What's more, it's waterproof, shock-proof, x-ray-proof, static-resistant, and tested to operate optimally in high and low temperatures."
