There’s a new king of the microSD card: Integral Memory’s 512GB microSD card, which packs a record-breaking full half-terabyte of storage into the diminutive card format. You definitely should try not to lose it. So in this article, you will get all information about the 512 Micro SD card.

The previous record holder — SanDisk’s now paltry 400GB card — is still a bit faster at 100MB/s, whereas Integral Memory’s new 512GB behemoth tops out at a maximum speed of 80MB/s. The new 512GB microSD card is also classified as an SDXC UHS-I U1 card (i.e., it has a minimum write speed of 10MB/s) and meets the V10 standard for video transfer rates, so it’s designed to capture full HD video off cameras.
The card conforms to the MicroSDXC standard, which is the same standard the Nintendo Switch is designed to work with. In fact, Nintendo Switch will work with microSD cards up to 2TB when our future scientists and engineers figure out how to make them a reality.
But hey, we’re a quarter of the way there right now, which is good news for anyone looking to cram as much information in as small a space as is currently possible in the microSD standard.What’s even better is we won’t have to wait long to find out if the new card truly is compatible with Switch (and again, there’s no reason to think it isn’t, but it hasn’t officially been tested): the cards come out next month.
No costs have yet been given, but you can bet they won’t be cheap. A decent 256GB microSD card will set you back at least $100 if you’re lucky.
