Samsung’s fast new microSD cards are built for on-device AI and robustness

Samsung has just unveiled a new generation of microSD cards that support the SD Express standard and enable lightning-fast performance.

In the official announcement post, the company states that it has begun sampling testing for the 256GB model, which they claim will have a maximum read speed of 800MB per second. To put that into perspective, our pick for the best SD card for 2024 is the Transcend SDXC UHS-II U3 ​​and it only has a top speed of 285MB per second. Samsung is trying to outdo even the best SATA SSDs, as these drives peak at 560MB.
