I guess someone should tell the guys at SanDisk and Micron that the world is now preferring cloud storage over local storage. Western Digital's card (which carries the company's SanDisk branding) is rated at 160 MB/s and 90 MB/s read and write speeds, respectively. The latest example of man's desire to fit a lot into a little is SanDisk's 1TB microSD card.

Western Digital advertises the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card as the world's fastest and largest UHS-I microSDXC card. It'll cost $449.99, which converts to about £345, but we wouldn't be surprised if it was more like £400 over here. In addition to this new 1TB variant of the Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card, the company is also announcing a 512GB model at a significantly lower price.

The 512GB version of this card was also announced, and both will be available to pre-order now through the SanDisk website.

The faster speeds may improve the gaming experience, the recording of 4K or virtual reality videos, and anything else that benefits from fast read or write speeds.

Small microSD cards are used for storage in a number of different devices, including drones, phones, and some digital cameras.

Apple and Goldman Sachs to team up for joint credit card
The Apple Pay card will use Mastercard's payment network, which is the second-largest in the USA after Visa, the sources added. However, its decision to partner with Goldmach Sachs on a consumer-facing product is an interesting one.

Micron's card offers the same capacity but at slower speeds.

Different types of microSD cards such as microSD HC, XC and UC Express, will become available in the future.

SanDisk isn't just making a claim about their write speeds being better than Micron's though. We may not see SD Express-enabled cards or devices this year, but the SD Association is working closely with PCI-SIG (the organization behind the PCIe standard) to bring the new protocol to market soon.

Moreover, it employs the Micron 96-layer 3D QLC NAND and has Video Speed Class 30 support.

Both will be available in April, but aren't cheap.
