SanDisk today announced the world’s biggest SD card, which they claim is the first to pack 1 terabyte of storage.
If you work with 4K or even higher quality video, you’ll be happy to hear there’s now an even better option than the company’s current best offering — their already enormous 512 GB SD card.
The proudct currently still only exists as a prototype, but will probably be released soon. There’s no pricing information available yet, but if the $345 cost of the 512 GB card is taken into account, it won’t exactly come cheap.
This is roughly what you can store on a 3.2 cm tall piece of plastic in 2016:
- ~1,250 episodes of your favorite series in 1080p
- ~200,000 songs
- ~310,000 photos
- the data on ~728,178 floppy disks
- an almost infinite amount of .txt documents saying ‘I paid too much for this SD card’
Meanwhile, I’m writing this on a laptop with a puny 128 GB SSD and realizing that life is unfair.
