1TB microSD cards revealed, coming soon for all your Switch space needs

As per several news reports, both Micron and Western Digital's Sandisk have launched the world's first 1TB microSD cards. I guess someone should tell the guys at SanDisk and Micron that the world is now preferring cloud storage over local storage. The Sandisk claims to come with read speed of 160MB per second and write speed of 90MB per second. It boasts 160MB/s read speeds and 90MB/s write speeds that "allows consumers to transfer files in almost half the time over standard UHS-I microSD cards now on the market".

If 1TB is more memory than you'll need, you'll have an alternative. The MSRPs are $449.99 (c. £340 - though we can't predict how much they'll sell for in the UK) for the 1TB and $199.99 for the 512GB, respectively.

The Micron c200 1TB microSDXC UHS-II card is expected to ship at some point during Q2 2019, although a price has not yet been announced. If you want a huge amount of storage for games, video, photos, or apps - this is the card to get right now.

Different types of microSD cards such as microSD HC, XC and UC Express, will become available in the future. It also trumps the maximum 95MB/s read speed of the monster Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I card that went on sale earlier this year. The cards reach these record-breaking speeds by leveraging Western Digital's proprietary flash technology.

MicroSD cards rarely stay at MSRP for long, but it'll take time before that $450 price tag drops into impulse buy territory.

Moreover, it employs the Micron 96-layer 3D QLC NAND and has Video Speed Class 30 support. Manufacturers were just saying, "Hey, if someone makes a microSD card at 2TB, it will work with this device".

Both will be available in April, but aren't cheap.
