Article Comments  6

Today a new memory card format was introduced. SDXC, or SD eXtended Capacity, will be capable of fitting up to 2 terabytes of data onto a single card. The new technology also accelerates SD interface read/write speeds to 104 Mbps in 2009, with a road map to 300 Mbps set for the coming year. The SDXC specification uses Microsoft's exFAT file system to support its large capacity. A 2 terabyte SDXC memory card can store 100 HD movies, 60 hours of HD recording or 17,000 fine-grade photos. The first cards will be available later this year. Pricing for the cards was not revealed, nor have any handset manufacturers said they will support the new format.
