Sam­sung In­tro­duces 3D NAND 256GB EVO Plus mi­croSD Card

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

Mem­ory con­trollers are a ne­ces­sity for ev­ery solid-state drives (SSDs) ever made. With­out them, those ul­tra-fast load times would be near im­pos­si­ble to at­tain for every­body's fa­vorite slim stor­age de­vice.

But all that's been changed, thanks to Sam­sung's re­cently an­nounced 256GB EVO Plus mi­croSD card. Un­like other mi­croSD cards, the EVO Plus is fit­ted with a 48-layer 3D TLC V-NAND, rather than the more tra­di­tional pla­nar NAND.

“With the up­ward trend of con­sumers us­ing high­per­for­mance, high-ca­pac­ity mo­bile de­vices, our new, V-NAND-based 256GB mi­croSD card solution al­lows us to de­liver the mem­ory card con­sumers have been crav­ing,” said Un-Soo Kim, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent of Brand Prod­uct Mar­ket­ing, Mem­ory Busi­ness at Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics. “Our EVO Plus 256GB mi­croSD card, will pro­vide con­sumers with large ca­pac­ity, and high read and write speeds. We are ex­cited to of­fer our cus­tomers con­ve­nient and seam­less mul­ti­me­dia ex­pe­ri­ences when they ac­cess, store and share all of the con­tent they cre­ate and capture.”

The 256GB EVO Plus is clas­si­fied as a UHS-1 Class 10 card, and of­fers up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s of se­quen­tial read and write speeds, re­spec­tively. This makes the card ideal for high-res­o­lu­tion pho­tog­ra­phy, as well as cap­tur­ing videos in 4K res­o­lu­tion or 360-de­gree VR. The card will be avail­able within this month for an ap­prox­i­mate price of RM1,000. 98 HWM | JUNE 2016
