It is supposed to be very suitable for audio-visual professions

SDXC cards are not exactly very many in number, but Silicon Power is eagerly playing its part in changing that, having completed its latest such item.

According to Silicon Power, the SDXC UHS-I 64 GB Class 10 memory card “brings absolutely the best of the transmission speed.”

That is about as bold as statements can get, but we will let prospective buyers figure out the truth of it on their own.

The company did, at least, include the actual performance numbers in its official announcement.

It turns out that the SDXC UHS-I Class 10 can read data at up to 60 MB/s and write it at a maximum of 35 MB/s.

That is not nearly as fast as what XQD cards can supposedly accomplish.

Then again, it will take a while before that new standard actually gets off the ground, what with some of the major makers of flash cards being reluctant to lunge at it, for now.

Moving on, Silicon Power believes that its new card is a very good choice for professionals in the audio-visual industry.

Thanks to the significant writing speed, shooting still photos in quick succession comes easily, with no quality loss.

The same goes for continuous recording of videos in Full HD quality.

Other specifications include support for CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media), compliance with SDMI security specs (Secure Digital Music Initiative), RoHS support and a lifetime warranty.

Finally, since the Silicon Power SDXC UHS-I 64 GB Class 10 adopted the latest exFAT format, the highest capacity limit for single files has been overcome.

Where it used to be impossible to create files larger than 4GB, this limitation is no longer in place. Thus, one's camera or camcorder don't end up experiencing any sort of lag during extended operation.

Alas, the price of the newcomer was not included in the formal announcement.
