Transcend Unveils UHS-I Speed Class 3 MicroSD Cards for High-Speed Recordings

Transcend released the new SDXC/SDHC UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3) 633x microSD memory cards. The new microSD cards are based on MLC NAND and can reach transfer speeds of up to 95MB per second while offering optimum protection and a capacity up to 64GB, ideal for recording with action cameras or other high-speed capture devices.

The write speeds don’t go as far as the read speeds, but still come in at a very impressive 85MB/s, and that’s the relevant item when recording. It should easily be enough for capturing smooth 3D or 4K content and easily deal with Full HD videos speed-shots. Older devices that don’t support the UHS-I specification are still compatible, and Transcend’s SDXC/SDHC UHS-I U3 card can still offer constant write speeds of at least 10MB/s.

There is a good chance that your device will give out long before the card does as it can operate at temperatures between -25°C to 85°C, it’s waterproof, static proof, x-ray proof and shock proof. It also comes with built-in error correcting code (ECC). Transcend also bundles the RecoveRx software with the card, allowing the user to easily rescue deleted files by searching the NAND.
