Lexar is back and is already making an impact with the new A2 speed class MicroSD card that features a staggering 512MB of storage.
The card is predominantly aimed at Android phone users who are looking for additional space to store photos and movies taken on the latest generation of high-resolution phones.
The 512GB Lexar 633x MicroSDXC UHS-I is the first card of this class to offer this scale of capacity.
This means that alongside your images and video you’ll also be able to store all your mobiles apps, and the cards fast enough to enable you to run those apps direct from the card rather than from the mobiles own memory.
Classed at UHS-I V30 this means that the card is fast enough for any mobile needs, and with a minimum write speed of 30MB/s and a transfer speed of up to 100MB/s it will work perfectly well in most CSC’s and DSLRs with the SD adapter.
The new A2 class joins the other card classes as a way to determine which card is best for you.
Whereas C and V class dictate the minimum write speeds the A class is designed to show the speed of random read writes to the card. This gives a better impression of how the card will perform if used to run apps.
The Lexar card enables random write speed of 2000 IOPS and a minimum read speed of 4000 IOPS, this enables you to run apps direct from the card.
The 512GB Lexar High-Performance 633x microSDXC™ UHS-I card is available late-October at MSRP of €259.99 Euro. For more information visit www.lexar.com
