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.
