Big things in small packages are due from Panasonic this November. We’re referring to the hefty new SDHC cards they’ve got in store for us, the RP-SDY08G and RP-SDY16G.
The twosome were built to meet UHS-I standards that can reach 60MB/s of read speeds. In case UHS-I is new to you, the promotional literature explains it this way:
“UHS-I is the new standard for high speed bus interface defined by the SD Association as part of the SD Memory Card Specification version.03.1.”
What this suggests is both memory cards enjoy excellent performance and a string of other attractive features. Foremost is nearly doubled data transfer compared to previous versions.
Throw in Super Intelligent Controller (SICS) to protect data plus Power Failure Protection for those emergencies where you might lose important data in case of power outage or blackout and you’ve got an attractive package. The cards are also well suited for 3D and HD video recording.
Additionally, the RP-SDY08G and SDY16G pack ten times the archival life of their predecessors and include functions that protect them from damaging rewrites. The SICS makes sure errors are cleaned and improves each card’s longevity.
But wait, don’t hop out of your seat yet. These new memory cards won’t be available until next month, remember?
