Patriot launches new V90 SD cards

Patriot Memory has launched a new SDXC memory card. The company says the Patriot V90 SDXC memory card has market-wide support for top-of-the-line cameras from major camera brands, including Nikon, Sony and Canon.

Speed and performance

The Patriot V90 SDXC memory card meets the latest UHS-II standards. It’s also certified in the latest U3 and V90 speed classes. In addition, Patriot quotes the maximum read speeds as 300 MB/s and maximum write speeds as 260 MB/s. The company says the V90 card will capture 4K Ultra-HD high-speed recording and uninterrupted 8K UHD video. Patriot also claims you can transfer up to 1,381 photos from the new card in one minute.

Build quality

Patriot says the new V90 SD card is built and tested for durability through even the toughest conditions. As such, it is waterproof, shockproof, temperature-proof and dustproof. It is also labeled as being x-ray-proof. In addition, the V90 is backed by Patriot’s five-year warranty, so this is a card you can rely on. For added peace of mind, the card incorporates flash wear leveling and bad block management. These technologies manage how data is written to the card’s memory to enhance its lifespan and reliability.

Storage capacity

The Patriot V90 SDXC memory card is available in four capacities: 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB.

What we think

As video resolutions increase, so do the demands on your memory cards. In addition, it’s not just the capacity that’s important. Shooting 4K or more, especially at higher frame rates, requires memory cards that can handle much higher data rates. The Patriot V90 SDXC memory card is a welcome addition to the market at a great price point.

Pricing and availability

The Patriot V90 SDXC memory card is available now from the Patriot Memory website and Amazon store. It is priced at $48 for the 64 Gb card, $88 for the 128 GB, $185 for the 256 GB and $400 for the 512 GB capacity.
