SanDisk Speeds Up App Performance On Its Memory Cards
SanDisk today said it has improved its SanDisk Extreme microSD card by adopting the A1 specification. MicroSD cards with A1 specifically ensure that apps run from the card as quickly and smoothly as possible. Many people now store apps on memory cards in order to keep space free on their device, especially large apps such as games. According to SanDisk, the A1 spec allows the cards to manage random read input-output access per second so it can open apps swiftly and also process accompanying tasks, such as audio, graphics, saved profiles, and in-app permissions. SanDisk says the 256 GB SanDisk Extreme microSD card with A1 is ideal for 4K and full HD video applications, gaming, and other speed-intensive apps. Some phone and component makers have adopted the spec, too, including HTC, Huawei, Lenovo, MediaTek, Meizu, Oppo, and ZTE. The card also supports file transfer speeds of up to 100Mbps. The card is expected to arrive in late March for $200.
