SD Association, which manages the standards used in SD memory cards, recently announced that it will soon be able to find cards with a capacity of as much as 128 terabytes.

Namely, the new SD Express standard, created by the integration of PCI Express and NVMe interfaces, otherwise known for its high bandwidth and low latency, would in theory have enabled the creation of SD memory cards with a capacity of up to 128 TB and data rates of 985 MB/s.

Of course, it is superfluous to mention that SD Express represents a huge leap compared to the current SD 6.0 standard, as it supports only cards with a capacity of up to 2 TB, with a data transfer rate of 624 MB/s.

Unfortunately, it is not known at this time when exactly we can expect the first cards based on this standard, nor how much it will cost, although we do not doubt that prices – at least initially – will be more than astronomical.
