We’ve just posted the following news: Sandisk unveils its supersized 1TB SDXC Extreme Pro memory card[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2016/09/extreme-pro-1tb-95x75.jpg[/newsimage]

Sandisk today unveiled a 1TB SDXC memory card at the Photokina trade fair currently held in Cologne, Germany. The card is likely based on 48 layer 256 Gbit 3D NAND but so far no actual technical deals are known.

Hmm, 1TB on a SD-card? While I am sure that we can manage to squeeze even 1PB on such a small space in time using other technologies, 1TB is still crazy as of today…

‘Don’t worry about limited bandwidth, I’ll clone my installation on a SD card for you to restore and send it in a letter’ :bigsmile:

This is insanely crazy, I am still using a 32GB Sandisk card in my phone…I cannot think of any circumstance where I would need a supersized memory card like that in my phone.

[/QUOTE] Good, because you couldn’t put it in your phone, since it is a full size SD card, not a MicroSD card. :smiley:

People recording 4K/8K video could probably use a card with this kind of capacity.

But the problem comes is the hardware firmware able to recognize the 1tb SD card which they mostly likely can’t and that will be a problem for older hardware. If this came in 1tb MicroSD that wouldn’t be so bad… :stuck_out_tongue:

They’ll need to consider thermodynamic aspects when shrinking so many cells down the microSDXC form factor.

“Hi there. I would like to put some e-books on my brand new SD card please”

“No problem. What e-book would you like?”

“All of them!”

Book seller? No way! Go to a local library and borrow them.

Seriously… i hardly buy books. I rent and borrow them.

Don’t you think whoever is willing to spend $700-1000 on this card, probably knows a thing or two about file system limitations in this regard? This product is not aimed at the casual every day user…

Money ≠Knowledge

In my experience, you are speaking of whoever really wants the card but can’t afford it knows most of the technicalities you mention.
Whoever actually buys it does not necessarily know, a little like buying a $3000 PC for surfing the web and playing solitaire.

[QUOTE=TSJnachos117;2781532]Even if the 1TB cards can be read by a given firmware/device, most users are still going to unknowingly use FAT32, which only supports files < 4GB.[/QUOTE] Users would unknowingly use exFAT, since that is the standard filesystem on SDXC cards. A user might instead format the card using NTFS, but at least on Windows they would not be able to format this card using FAT32 without going to the trouble of finding third-party utilities that will allow FAT32 on devices of 32 GB and larger.

Nobody would be able to “unknowingly” use FAT32 on such cards, but it would be possible to [I]deliberately[/I] achieve this.

A terabyte is a phenomenal size for a memory card. :eek:

Makes me wonder what sort of use they’re actually aiming this at?

UHD camcorders perhaps?

Imagine…half of your porn… on this small thing …
