Lexar has introduced the world’s fastest 64GB microSDXC card with a read speed rating of 600x, thanks to a 90MB/s read transfer speed.
It was not too long ago when SanDisk revealed the fastest 64GB microSDXC card in the world. It featured a UHS-I speed class with about 80MB/s read and 50MB/s write speeds, respectively. Unfortunately for SanDisk, things have just changed.

As two months have passed since the aforementioned announcement, SanDisk is now ready to turn over the reigns to one of its bigger competitors: Lexar. The Micron Technology-owned brand has been present at IFA Berlin 2013 in order to demonstrate the capabilities of its latest storage card, which provides a speed rating of 600x.
The new Lexar High-Performance 64GB microSDXC UHS-I card allows users to transfer files with up to 90MB/s speeds, an unrivaled accomplishment so far.
Big-megapixel, ultra HD 4K, and 3D video cameras need fast cards to write files faster
Since it is sized at 64GB, it means that it can store up to eight hours of full HD videos or up to 24,800 8-megapixel images.
Lexar says that its new tiny storage card is perfect for photographers and videographers. Its fast writing speeds call for fast 3D or ultra HD movie recording. Moreover, it could prove very useful for Nikon D800 / D800E users, a pair of cameras capable of taking 36.3-megapixel photos, in order to move files faster from the buffer to the card.
The company added that the card will allow users to focus more on things they like and less on waiting for files to be transferred.

There are other advantages that Lexar will supply into the High-Performance 64GB microSDXC UHS-I card package. Buyers will get a USB 3.0 card reader, so that they can move files quicker to a computer. The USB 3.0 reader is also compatible with USB 2.0 ports.
The company will begin selling world’s fastest 64GB microSDXC card soon for a price of $99.99. It is worth noting that a lifetime warranty will be supplied, while the USB 3.0 reader is “ensured” for 12 months.
