SanDisk has once again led the way in the storage world, this time surprising analysts and consumers alike with a new rugged 512 gigabyte SD card.

The American multinational announced the highest-ever capacity SD card at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam last Thursday, 11 September.

The announcement marks the first ever availablility of a 512GB SD card; the previous maximum size was 256GB.

The card is dubbed the ‘SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I’ and will be available at retail for US$799.99 at release.

Sandisk introduced its first 512MB SD Card a little over a decade ago. The card isn’t exactly aimed at the average Joe consumer; Sandisk said in a statement the new card is “deigned to meet the demands of advancing technology both in photo and video – with the advent of 4K video in many cameras and the increasing resolution and file sizes of images.
