SanDisk introduces Extreme Micro-SDXC cards, the world's new fastest memory cards for portables
posted by Victor H. / Jul 10, 2013, 3:03 AM
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.

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.
