Integral Memory claims biggest microSD record with new 512GB card

Posted January 24, 2018

Integral's 512GB microSD card will arrive on shelves in the United Kingdom next month, but the firm hasn't yet said how much it'll cost.

We saw recently that Sandisk release a microSD card that can hold up to 400GB of data which was the biggest amount of storage an microSD could hold. Given that the SanDisk 400GB microSD was released at $249 nearly five months ago, the Integral card could come in very near the same price point.

The new microSD card carrying 512GB of Memory Storage is rated class 10. The V10 title signifies that the card meets the Video Speed Class 10 (V10) standard.

The Integral 512GB microSD card launches next month, although we don't have actual prices for it. I'm thinking back to the horror of picking up proprietary Vita memory cards, shivering at the idea of buying them marked up and one day, out-of-print/circulation. Other devices such as action cameras, dash cameras and home security cameras also can use these cards to store photographic content, including videos. The pricing details of the card are not yet known. SanDisk's 400GB card costs around $250, so Integral's card will likely cost significantly more than that.

Europe-wide memory specialist Integral Memory plc has beaten all competitors and answered a growing need for increased capacity on mobile devices.

Recently, Samsung announced that it started the production of the world's first 512GB embedded universal flash (eUFS). Basically, it has a minimum write speed of 10MB/s, which should be good enough for normal consumers.

Nevertheless, despite competition from the advanced products, the memory card market is expected to grow. With the 512GB of space, you will not be running out of storage memory on your device.
