Toshiba Announces World's First 64GB SDXC Memory Card 35Mbps Write Speed, 60 Mbps Read Speed

After unveiling the world's first 16GB micro-SDHC memory card back in
October 2008, Toshiba made it clear to the electronics world that they
were not content to rest on their laurels. The news today that Toshiba
had created the world's first 64GB SDXC memory card heralded a new day
for the portable storage device market. Oh yeah, and this thing also
boasts the fastest data transfer rate currently available in an SD
memory card. The 64GB SDXC card has a top write speed of 35Mbps and a
read speed of 60Mbps. From a practical standpoint, that's enough to
handle a 2.4GB video file in about 70 seconds.

Toshiba will start to ship the first samples to its OEM partners
sometime in November. General sales should follow in the spring of 2010.
Around that time, the company also plans to launch two new SDHC cards, a
16GB and a 32GB model. Both versions will feature a write speed of
35Mbps and a read speed of 60Mbps.

And since the SDXC technology has a theoretical capacity limit of up to
2TB I wouldn't expect Toshiba to be far behind with the next jump in
capacity. To put this in perspective, the SDHC cards max out at 32GB.
