It’s been a long time since I had to wait for my camera’s storage card to catch up with my shooting… But if you take shots faster than I do, you might be happy to hear that development on ever-faster storage continues, with Toshiba now unveiling new an SD card with the fastest write speed available, the company claims — up to any burst rate you might throw at it.
How fast? The Exceria Pro series “will offer photographers a data write speed of 240 megabytes per second,” Toshiba says.
The card’s newly developed UHS-II4 controller [ultra high speed serial bus interface] “achieve significantly higher data transfer speeds than earlier UHS-I compliant cards,” Toshiba adds.
The latest Exceria cards will launch in October. However, they likely won’t deliver the goods in your favorite ol’ digicam: For full speed, they require the latest UHS-II compatible cameras.
