The SD Association has launched microSD Express, a powerful mobile storage format that will offer users speeds of up to 985MB/s.
The microSD Express technology uses the same PCIe 3.1 and NVMe v1.3 specifications that are currently used in computers to power SSDs.
“MicroSD Express gives the mobile industry a compelling new choice to equip mobile devices with removable SSDs,” said Hiroyuki Sakamoto, the president of the SD Association.
“SD 7.1 prepares consumers and mobile device manufacturers to meet ever-increasing storage demands for years to come.”
This new technology will be backwards compatible with previous microSD technology.
