SanDisk Unveils World’s First 4TB SD Card

Western Digital has recently unveiled the world’s first 4-terabyte SD card, with plans to begin shipping this new capacity in 2025. The company showcased the 4TB SanDisk Extreme PRO SDUC UHS-I memory card at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show, which attracts broadcasters and content creators.

Details on the pricing of the new 4TB card have not been disclosed by Western Digital. It uses the UHS-I bus at Speed Class 10 and is rated as Video Speed Class V30, providing a minimal sequential write speed of 30 MB/s, suitable for 8K video recording.

Despite the increasing capacity of the SD cards, they may not be ideal for long-term storage due to factors like memory type and environmental conditions. The lifespan of an SD card is typically around ten years, so it’s advisable to opt for SSDs or external drives for storage needs.

Western Digital is also introducing the 24TB G-Drive, an external desktop hard drive priced at $699. For those looking for higher performance, the 24TB G-Drive Project is available for $929, featuring a 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3/USB-C port. Additionally, there is a 48TB version called the Mirror drive that includes an additional 24TB for RAID-1 mirrored backup, priced at $1,599.
