Silicon Power is releasing a new set of microSD cards. There are four new microSD cards that can work for the average smartphone or video professional.

Silicon Power says that they specifically designed these four microSD cards for those “who want to improve their mobile phone performance” or a “professional who’s looking to capture footage in the most stunning 8K Ultra HD quality.” The four microSD cards are the Superior Pro V90 microSD, Superior V30 A2 microSD, Superior V30 A1 microSD, and Elite V10 A1 microSD.

These cards are based around Silicon Power’s flavor of UHS-II tech. According to Silicon Power, the Superior Pro V90 can reach read and write speeds up to 290 and 160 MB/s. Essentially, this makes it possible to capture 8K Ultra HD photos and videos “quickly, easily, and with smooth playback,” according to Silicon Power.

Additionally, it writes raw files in half the time of UHS-I and “dramatically” increases post-production transfers.

Silicon Power’s MicroSDHC/SDXC UHS-I card is made for app enhancement and has a minimum random read of 4,000 IOPS. Also, it has a random write of 2,000 IOPS.

Superior V30 A1 microSD

With UHS Speed Class 1 and UHS Video Speed Class 30, the Superior microSDHC/SDXC UHS-I card should allow you to capture 4K Ultra HD videos uninterrupted. It has read and write speeds up to 100 and 80 MB/s.

Elite V10 A1 microSD

As for the Elite V10 A1 microSD, it has a Class 10 performance rating for “uninterrupted” recording of Full-HD 1080p video. Also, it has a Video Speed Class 10 rating, which allows a recording minimum of 10MB of video per second.
