High writing speed makes new SanDisk memory card suitable for 4K video recording

SanDisk has unveiled a new SD card that offers a write speed of up to 250MB/s, making it ideal for recent camera releases from Sony and Panasonic capable of recording 4K-resolution video at a high data rate. The SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC UHS-II memory card exceeds the UHS Speed Class 3 Rating, with its writing speed beaten only by the 280MB/s read speed.

Offering a minimum sustained write speed of 30MB/s, the cards are said to be shock, X-ray, and water-proof, and able to operate in temperatures between -13 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit. The cards are also supplied with a one-year subscription to RescuePRO Deluxe, data recovery software that can be used to recover accidentally deleted or otherwise lost images and videos on memory cards.

Shipping in April, the high-speed memory cards will range from a 16GB model for $120, up to $300 for a 64GB card.

The SanDisk Extreme Pro SD UHS-II Card Reader/Writer will also be shipping at the same time as the new memory cards. Capable of reading SD UHS-II cards, the reader is able to transfer to a connected computer at speeds of up to 500MB/s over USB 3.0, though it will also work with USB 2.0 connections and with other SD cards. SanDisk is pricing the reader at $50.
