Adata releases 40MB/s microSDHC UHS-I U1 Memory Cards

Adata has launched a 32GB UHS-1 microSD card offering 40MB/s write bandwidth.

Adata, which recently has been making a big push in the solid-state disk (SSD) drive market, has announced its first microSD cards that support the UHS-1 specification. The firm’s Premier Pro cards come in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities with the firm citing read bandwidth of 45MB/s and all important write bandwidth of 40MB/s.

The SD Card Association defined the UHS-I specification as part of its SD Version 3.01 standard, and while Adata’s new cards boast impressive speeds there is a lot of headroom left, with UHS-1 supporting bandwidths up to 104MB/s. Adata’s cards, roughly translated to the ‘X’ speed rating used on a number of memory cards, come out at 266X.

Ray Chu, product manager at Adata said, “These cards have the best read and write performance among all comparable products offered by the industry’s key players. When that is combined with the aggressive pricing options in store for this line, the result is going to be a bonanza for our customers worldwide.”

As smartphones and tablets record higher resolution video, microSD cards need to increase bandwidth in order to keep up. Adata has stolen a march over rivals such as Sandisk that flog cards rated up to 30MB/s.

Adata said its Premier Pro microSD cards will be available soon but provided only US pricing at $20 for 8GB, $40 for 16GB and $80 for 32GB cards, which undercuts Sandisk prices considerably.
