The SanDisk Extreme UHS-1 microSDXCcan reach data read speeds of up to 160 MB/second or about 70 percent faster than the older UHS-1 microSD cards.

We've always been fans of the world that SanDisk does, and its certainly one of the first brand names we look for when making any sort of storage purchase.

Micron and Western Digital are both prepping 1TB MicroSD cards, but they won't be cheap.

Today was a big day for the future of microSD cards.

SanDisk's 1TB Extreme UHS-I microSD card will cost $450 when it becomes available in April, while Lexar's SD card is already available to buy for $499.

We have been on a run - if we're being honest - in which we have not been playing our best football. He has also struck six trebles for Argentina.

Micron's fingernail-sized card uses 96-layer 3D NAND configured as QLC (4bits/cell) storage and delivers up to 100MB/s read and 95MB/s write burst performance helped by a dynamically sized SLC cache. But there are still lots of reasons you might want to whack a huge memory card in your smartphone, and SanDisk and Micron have got your back. It's not clear if the card meets the brand new microSD Express standard. According to Micron, this card has been designed specifically for high-performance mobile applications, and is certified for the A2 App Performance Class specification. However, that slower speed will likely come with a lower price tag as well.

Micron's 1TB offering will launch in Q2 with pricing TBA. Like this SanDisk card that can be picked up with quite the saving right now.

The main problem here is that you're mostly paying for the convenience of storing all of your games on one card; SanDisk also has a 400GB card available for just $77.90 on Amazon at the time of writing, and plenty of other more affordable options, too.

Western Digital 's sub-brand SanDisk and Micron have both announced their 1TB microSD cards.
