Lexar has announced the world’s first 1TB 633x SDXC UHS-I memory card. Yup, you read that right: one terabyte.

The Class 10 UHS-I card has a V30/U3 rating, which means whilst the specs claim 95MB/s read speed and 70MB/s write speed, you’ll only get 30MB/s sustained write speed. The card comes from a “professional” series that includes capacities from 16GB upwards. Cards have a limited lifetime warranty.

SanDisk announced a 1TB card as long ago as 2016, but the product never saw the light of day. By contrast, in Lexar’s case, the card is available now—and it will set you back a cool $500.
