Today at CES 2015, Kingston introduced microSD and SD cards under the UHS-I Speed Class 3 boasting some 90MB/s read and 80MB/s write speeds. This is great news for those who want to play and record 4K video without stuttering. These speeds exceeds the standard Class 10 SD cards 9x times for the read speeds and 8x times for the write speeds.
By Kingston estimates, users can capture up to 60 minutes of 4K HD video or shoot photos in RAW or up to 8,000 24 MP images in JPEG on a 64GB card. The new card is available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB flavors, but pricing is yet to be announced.
