Sandisk showed its new monster one-terabyte SDXC card at IBC 2019 this weekend - the highest capacity SD-format card that the memory card specialist has launched to date. The card has twice the capacity of the existing largest 512GB card in its Extreme Pro range. 

The performance is the same as with the existing Sandisk Extreme Pro cards, with read speeds of up to 170MB/s, and write speeds of up to 90MB/s. But Sandisk tells us that this makes its new one terabyte version the fastest 1TB SD card currently available.  Lexar already sells a 1TB card, which was launched last year, but this offers a speed rating of 95MB card is available now and costs £478.99 in the UK, and $499.99 in the US.
