ADATA Launches SDHC & SDXC Cards Featuring UHS-I Technology James White May 29, 2012 Press Release The number one upgrade made to any electronic device is storage upgrades. It is always the first thing considered and usually the first thing done. This is especially true for those who own tablet PCs, smartphones, or portable media devices with SD card slots. Well, ADATA is here to make your choice easy with the new SDHC and SDXC cards with UHS-I technology. The new SDHC and SDXC cards will be available in 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB designs with ECC (error correcting code) and write-switch protection. They’re resistant to extreme temperatures and the outer construction is also X-ray proof so your do not lose data when your device is scanned by a X-ray machine at an airport. Not sure if that is actually possible, but it is the only example why you would need X-ray proofing unless you are a spy. The key feature for me is the UHS-I specs/technology. To keep things short and simple, it is the next step in memory card classes. The fastest class based SD card is a class 10 which is 10 MB/s. The UHS-I, using a clock rate roughly 8 times faster, reaches the 95 MB/s read and 45 MB/s write speeds on the new ADATA SDHC and SDXC cards. This new speed literally put these kinds of cards in a class all by themselves. Why spend hundreds on a Android or Windows 7 based smartphone or tablet PC, only to cripple its performance with a “regular” SD card for your storage? The same goes for those with mid to high quality digital SLR cameras who shoot in burst mode or HDR. Get a card like these and let your portable devices show you what they really can do.
