MicroSD Card PCI Express NVMe

The SD Association has just announced microSD Express, a next-generation memory card storage standard that uses PCI Express and NVMe interfaces for SD cards to deliver incredibly fast data read and write speeds available in three versions: microSDHC Express, microSDXC Express, and microSDUC Express. All of these new cards follow SD 7.1 specification, and contain a second row of pins for the PCIe 3.1 as well as NVMe 1.3 technology. Read more for another video and additional information.

“The SD Association claims that the microSD Express cards are basically equivalent to a removable SSD card in smartphones and other compatible devices. In addition to a significantly faster data transfer speed, the microSD Express video cards are also claimed to consume less energy, besides serving as an ideal solution for high-intensity tasks such as capturing super slow motion videos, RAW burst mode output and 8K video playback,” reports NDTV.
