Byte This!: Lexar Intros Whopping 1TB (Terabyte), 633x SDXC UHS-1 Memory Card

Lexar turned quite a few heads with a tiny memory card boasting a huge capacity at the CES show in Las Vegas today. The San Jose, CA-based company announced a “behemoth of storage capacity” at CES: a 1TB, 633x SDXC UHS-1 memory card.

Only 15 years ago, Lexar made news by introducing a 1GB SD Card. Times have certainly changed in the world of digital storage.

While some are touting this as “the world’s first” 1TB SDXC card, a few years ago at the photokina show in Germany, SanDisk unveiled a prototype of a 1TB SDXC card. As far as we can tell, however, that 1TB card does not appear to have come to market.

The new Lexar 1TB SDXC memory card with its maximum 95MB/s (633x) read transfer speed is reportedly on sale now for $499.95.
