New Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-II SDXC and SDHC memory cards
Sandisk is back with a new memory card announcement. They are now launching the Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-II SDXC and SDHC memory cards that promise write speeds of up to 250MB/sec and read speeds of up to 280MB/sec. To get the maximum theoretical speeds, it has to be a lunar eclipse, on a leap year, that coincides with the Year of the Unicorn, and only on Tuesdays that fall on the 5th or the 21st of an even-numbered month with 30 days or less :)
Kidding aside, Sandisk is primary targeting this towards 4K video shooters with UHS Speed Class 3 rating. So far three models have been announced in this line-up, 64GB, 32GB and 16GB, with root model number SDSDXPB-XXXGB-A46, where XXX is the storage capacity (eg 064, 032, 016).
