KIOXIA Releases 2TB microSDXC Memory Card

Published

on

KIOXIA Europe GmbH has announced that it has started mass production of the 2 terabytes (TB) microSDXC memory card, a breakthrough for smartphone owners, content creators and on-the-go gamers. With enhanced performance and capacity, EXCERIA PLUS G2 2TB microSDXC memory cards are here to put fewer limits on what users can record and store.

By leveraging proprietary manufacturing technology including its innovative BiCS FLASH™ 3D flash memory and an in-house designed controller, KIOXIA has successfully manufactured a 2TB microSDXC UHS-I memory card. Though the SD Association’s SDXC specification has supported memory cards up to 2TB for over a decade, KIOXIA accomplished this challenge by stacking sixteen 1 terabit dies of 3D flash memory while maintaining the specification’s maximum thickness of 0.8 mm.

With a read speed of up to 100 MB/s  and write speed of up to 90 MB/s, EXCERIA PLUS G2 2TB microSDXC memory cards meet UHS Speed Class 3 (U3), Application Class 1 (A1) and Video Speed Class 30 (V30). The 2TB capacity allows users to record over 41 hours of video (100Mbps), making them suited for high-capacity data recording applications such as action cameras.

“These new, enhanced cards can become a sought-after option by many smartphone owners, content creators, dashcam and video bloggers, and on-the-go gamers alike,” says Jamie Stitt, General Manager B2C Sales & Marketing, KIOXIA Europe GmbH. “We are pleased to offer extra performance and capacity through these new EXCERIA PLUS G2 2TB microSDXC cards.”

Market introduction of EXCERIA PLUS G2 2TB microSDXC memory cards is scheduled to begin in the coming quarter.

Review: KIOXIA EXCERIA High Endurance UHS-I Micro-SDXC

Published

If you’re a frequent driver, you’ve likely come to recognise the importance of dashcams. These devices are particularly indispensable in various countries, where they’re practically mandatory for car insurance coverage. Beyond meeting insurance requirements, they prove to be excellent companions for documenting road trips and sharing your journeys with friends and family. I’ve been using a dashcam for years and have grown to value the top-notch footage it captures. However, the effectiveness of recording with a dashcam diminishes when your recording media lacks reliability.

So, when KIOXIA offered me the chance to review their Exceria High Endurance UHS-I Micro-SDXC card, I seized the opportunity. These microSD memory cards are purpose-built for Full HD video recording and are specifically designed for surveillance and dashboard cameras. The cards’ impressive endurance capability makes them ideal for continuous writing and rewriting, greatly reducing the risk of video recording failures.

The KIOXIA EXCERIA High Endurance UHS-I Micro-SDXC card is available in storage capacities of 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. For this review, KIOXIA sent us the 256GB variant. This card comes packed with an SD adapter for easy file transfer. On paper, it offers a read speed of up to 100 MB/s and a write speed of up to 65 MB/s. It is also temperature-proof from -25 to +85 degrees Celsius, is shockproof, and offers three years of warranty.

In real-world tests, I was genuinely pleased to observe the EXCERIA High Endurance Micro-SDXC UHS-I card transferring videos to my PC at a remarkable speed of nearly 100 MB/s. Additionally, I used the Crystal DiskMark benchmark tool to validate KIOXIA’s claims, and the results confirmed that these cards lived up to their promises.

The KIOXIA EXCERIA High Endurance 256GB microSDXC card impressively lives up to its speed class, aligning well with the stated specifications. It uses BiCS 3D Flash memory technology from Toshiba and boasts a range of valuable features, including waterproof, shockproof, X-ray proof, temperature resistance, ESD immunity, and safeguards against overheating and ignition.

This product is backed by a generous 3-year warranty and is fully capable of recording in 4K resolution. For a price of 79.99 euros (AED 314), the KIOXIA EXCERIA High Endurance UHS-I Micro-SDXC comes across as highly recommended.
