Read speed is important.
Write speed is more important.
Data integrity is the most important.
Until SD cards have ssd type wear leveling, it’s entirely possible to throw away an ssd capacity portable card.

The usage scenario for these isn’t uhd video, twice the bit rate of fhd, but raw 20mp+ images at burst speed, which can exceed 20MB/sec per image.
90MB/sec means maximum 4.5 images per second.

The most important data point is missing from the press release as usual and that is the process node and type of nand this thing is using. After Samsung’s 840 series debacle, i won’t be buying TLC nand again. Since i can’t be sure this card doesn’t use TLC because they don’t state it in their press release, i won’t be considering this card.

What a strange number. I’d expect 256GB. Do they need 56GB of spare sectors? :slight_smile:

A way to use rejected 256GB memory chips? ;):bigsmile:

Everyone’s been doing effectively the same thing with processors for at least 25 years.

Funny, I wondered exactly the same thing myself.

It’s still amazing though the amount they’re able to pack into such a small space these days.

My friend’s first PC had a 20MB hard drive and that seemed massive back in those days. :eek::bigsmile:

Imagine how much of your porn is lost if you accidentally sneeze on this teeny tiny card and can’t find it afterwards. :stuck_out_tongue:

Forget that; what about all the lossless music I spent hours organizing and then copying over a USB 2.0 connection at USB 1.0 (not 1.1) speeds?

[note: I’m only half joking with this. I don’t use lossless file formats.]
