Transcend announces 64GB microSDXC Ultra High-Speed storage card

Ever-increasing storage demands prompt increasingly higher capacity storage cards, including the newest release from Transcend, a 64GB microSDXC UHS-I. This ultra-high speed memory card offers very fast transfer speeds in the tiny microSD shell, bringing high storage capacity to your small mobile devices. This is part of the maker's UHS-I line, which ranges from 8GB to 64GB.

The Transcend 64GB microSDXC Ultra-High Speed Class 1 memory card offers high transfer rates that go up to 45MB per second, giving users very high performance for demanding tasks. The memory card is being marketed towards smartphone and tablet owners, but is also applicable to other devices with support for microSDXC cards with this high of a capacity.

This card is boasted as offering data transfer speeds that 300 times faster than its non-Ultra High Speed equivalents, making it a good choice for those who watch, process, or record high-definition video, such as those utilizing the 1080p camera on their smartphone. It is also a good option for use with apps that are memory-intensive.

To help put the 64GB in perspective, this tiny microSD can hold approximately 10,000 high-res JPEG photographs taken at 12-megapixels with an average size of 6MB each. Or, for those who spend more time recording video than they do taking pictures, this newest Transcend card can hold 16 hours of video recorded at full 9Mbps 1920 x 1080 H.264 video. The card is available now for $109.
