PNY Introduces 512GB Elite microSD Card

PNY has announced a new 512 GB microSD card. It equals the capacity of a similar card from Integral Memory and exceeds the 400GB SanDisk model launched in August of 2017.

PNY announced a transfer speed of 90MB/sec, which makes it slightly faster than the Integral product at 80MB/sec. Sandisk is still the speed champ at 100MB/sec, though with less capacity.

All the cards carry the UHS-I, U1 label with Class 10 and V10 speed specification.

Priced at $349, the PNY 512 GB card can store up to 80 hours of HD video or up to 100,000 18MP photos. It could be useful for drone photographers desiring longer flights. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
