SanDisk's new 1TB microSD card will cost over $500

I guess someone should tell the guys at SanDisk and Micron that the world is now preferring cloud storage over local storage. It boasts 160MB/s read speeds and 90MB/s write speeds that "allows consumers to transfer files in almost half the time over standard UHS-I microSD cards now on the market". Brian Pridgeon, director of marketing for SanDisk-branded products at Western Digital noted that consumers rely on SanDisk microSD cards for all their storage needs.

Also, unlike Micron's card, Sandisk's 1TB card already has a price: $449.99. There's no word on when Micron's card will be available or how much will it cost. The Micron c200 1TB microSDXC UHS-I card uses Micron's 96-layer 3D quad-level NAND technology to achieve its high capacity. There's also a 512GB card in the new SanDisk lineup.

The faster speeds may improve the gaming experience, the recording of 4K or virtual reality videos, and anything else that benefits from fast read or write speeds. The storage solution follows the A2 specification for launching and loading apps, with a claimed performance output of 400 IOPS (read) and 2000 IOPs (write), however, the results may vary based upon capabilities of the host device. They will become more generally available through select retailers in April. This still meets UHS-I Speed Class 3 and Video Speed Class 30 specifications. In order to use the new cards, phones will need to support the 2TB microSD spec, something the LG V50 ThinQ 5G will do when it reaches stores later this year. Micron states that their cards will be the world's first commercially available card whereas SanDisk counters that their cards will be the fastest among the two. However, that slower speed will likely come with a lower price tag as well.
