Lexar Professional 633X is the world’s first 1TB SD card

Lexar has made storage history! The company has created the first ever 1TB SDXC flash memory card for cameras, the Lexar Professional 633X.

And unlike many of these world record-breaking devices, the Professional 633x will be sold to the public. It’s a UHS-I card, not the faster UHS-II model, but it runs at the top limits for a UHS I card at 95 MB/s (class 10). That should be enough for most 4K cameras.

Technically, the first company to make a 1TB SDXC card was SanDisk at Photokina 2016. The card wasn’t released to the public though, making Lexar is the first to do so. This is huge — we finally have a 1TB SD card. With SD cards now writing 4K videos and with 8K on the horizon, consumer 1 TB SDs couldn’t come at a better time.

“Shoot and record more of what you love without changing cards with this high-capacity 1TB memory card that supplies the space you need for capturing all the action. Designed for your mid-range DSLR, HD camcorder or 3D camera, the Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I card lets you quickly capture and transfer high-quality photos and stunning 1080p full-HD, 3D, and 4K video, with read speeds of up to 633x (95MB/s). This Class 10 card leverages UHS-I technology to deliver high-speed performance to get the shot you want, while providing the reliability you need,” Lexar said.
