The chip can move data at speeds up to 850Mbps, and write at speeds up to 260Mbps, which Samsung says is more than three times faster than high-performance micro SD cards. The 256 GB capacity is enough hold about 47 full HD movies. Samsung says the card is intended for mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablet, and laptops.
