SanDisk debuts 45MB/sec SDHC UHS-1 memory card
SanDisk Corp. today introduced the Extreme Pro SDHC UHS-1 memory card, a card targeted at those who capture high resolution images and full high definition video with their DSLR and video cameras. UHS-1, an acronym for Ultra High Speed technology, is part of the new SD 3.0 specification that enables cards to achieve up to 45 MB/sec read and write performance. SanDisk also uses its proprietary Power Core controller in the cards, claiming the controller distributes data more efficiently, and with better long term reliability.
The card is water proof, temperature proof, shock and vibration proof, and x-ray and magnet proof and is backed by a lifetime limited warranty. In order to achieve these speeds, the digital camera in which the card is being used must support UHS-1. The card comes in 8GB and 32GB capacities with prices ranging between $109 and $349.
