The new SDXC and SDHC memory cards are the first memory cards compliant with SD memory standard version 3.00, UHS104, which brings a new level of ultra-fast read and write speeds to NAND flash based memory cards: a maximum write speed of 35MB per second, and a read speed of 60MB per second.

The SDXC card is the next-generation of SD cards that was announced in January 2009 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The SDXC designation applies to cards with capacities over 32GB and up to 2TB, compared to the SDHC standard, which applies to cards with capacities over 2GB and up to 32GB.

Samples of Toshiba's new SDXC memory cards will be available this November, and samples of its new SDHC memory cards will be available in December.
