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.
All Transcend memory cards are fully tested for compatibility and reliability and the UHS-I U3 (633X) microSD cards are offered in 32GB and 64GB capacities and carry Transcend’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
