SanDisk 1TB SDXC Memory Card

SanDisk becomes the first to introduce a 1TB SD card, with its new 1TB SDXC card prototype.

16 years after unveiling the world's first 64 MB SD card, the company announces a new breakthrough in storage capacity, in an age of ultra-high-resolution photos, 4K videos, virtual reality, 360-degree video and video surveillance.

"Showcasing the most advanced imaging technologies is truly exciting for us," said Dinesh Bahal, VP, product management at Western Digital. "Over the years our goal has remained the same; continue to innovate and set the pace for the imaging industry. The SanDisk 1TB SD card prototype represents another significant achievement as growth of high-resolution content and capacity-intensive applications such as virtual reality, video surveillance and 360 video, are progressing at astounding rates."

Western Digital, SanDisk's parent company, is currently demonstrating the SanDisk 1TB SDXC card prototype. At press time, no word of a consumer release date or pricetag.
