Lexar Launches the World's First 1TB SDXC Memory Card

Memory monster! Lexar launches 1TB SD card

Lexar has announced the launch of a 1TB SD card at the ongoing CES 2019 tech fair in Las Vegas.

Back in 2016, SanDisk unveiled a prototype SDXC card that also came with a one terabyte capacity, but a final commercial product never arrived.

The 1TB SDXC card is from Lexar's Professional 633x range that offers read speeds of up to 95MB/s and write speeds of up 70MB/s.

If you're serious about photography, chances are you've got a high-end digital camera such as the Nikon D850 and a few 512GB SD cards for high resolution shots and 4K video storage. To put it in context, the 1 TB SD card should hold somewhere between 30-35 total hours of 4K video footage, depending on bitrate and framerate.

"Almost fifteen years ago, Lexar announced a 16GB SD card", Lexar Senior Marketing Manager Joey Lopez said in a statement. So, the Lexar's latest SD card is the first commercially available 1TB SD card you can actually buy. The Professional supports Class 10 UHS-I technology, if that wasn't clear from its name. You do, of course, lose the convenience of a single card, though, and there's every chance retailers will discount the card enough to make it the slightly cheaper option. We first saw this huge capacity card back at Photokina previous year, and is now offers the most memory that you can get in one SD card.
