Sandisk has announced what it believes is the fastest SDHC memory card available on the planet. The 32GB SanDisk Extreme SDHC card has read and write speeds up to 30MB/s and falls under the newly announced Class 10 specification, which exceeds the requirement for high definition video recording. The card has the capacity to store 160 minutes of full HD 1920×1080 pixels at a 24Mb/s data transfer rate.
For those netbook users who only have limited storage options and crave super-speeds, than this may be ideal. However, it’s unlikely to be cheap, with the price currently undisclosed. The SanDisk Extreme SDHC 32GB will start shipping in August. At the same time, all current SanDisk Extreme SDHC cards with capacities of 4, 8 and 16GB will be upgraded from class 6 to class 10.
