SanDisk introduces Extreme Micro-SDXC cards, the world's new fastest memory cards for portables
While read and write speeds on the last generation Ultra cards reached up to 30MB/s, in the nex Extreme Micro-SDXC family read speeds have more than doubled to 80MB/s and write speeds have gone up to 50MB/s. What do you need those high speeds for? The most obvious application is for burst shots where your smartphone camera snaps tens of images for fractions of a second.
The new SanDisk cards will come in capacities from 16GB to 64GB and prices are expected to start from $59.99 for the 16 gig model and up to $199 for the 64GB cards.

I think it wud b wise to call it exynos of the sd cards..since snapdragon doesnt support it yet(galaxy s4 i9505)..while exynos already does(galaxy s4 19500 exynos octa)

But would you spend extra $$$ for that marginal speed gain?

Sounds like it could be useful for HD video recording, especially if paired with my GoPro H3 Black or Sony Action Camera and any future GoPro. Hopefully it won't be much more than the current batch of high speed microSDHC/ XCs.

TOO DAMN EXPENSIVE. all i need is a regular SD MICRO. I used PNY their cheaper than san disk. i don't need a card too write faster.
