It’s been a few months since the SD Association approved the new UHS-I standard for speedier flash memory cards. Now we’re starting to see actual products based on the spec head to market. Toshiba has introduced a new line of SDHC UHS-I memory cards which are do to start shipping in November.
The cards will have read speeds up to 95MB/s and write speeds up to 80MB/s. They’ll be available in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities, with the 32GB model hitting the streets in November and the smaller guys set to hit the market in December.
The new SDHC cards will be the same size as a standard SD card — which is to say, about the size of a postage stamp. The only difference is that they’ll come in high capacities with faster read and write speeds.
