At CES 2019, Lexar launched what appears to be the world's first 1TB SD Card. There are a few suspiciously cheap "1TB" SD Cards on Amazon and other e-tailers, but they're almost certainly fakes, and the 1TB SD Card that SanDisk announced in 2016 ended up being vaporware. Lexar notes that they launched a 1GB SD Card less than 15 years ago, and say this card should be capable of speeds of up to 95MB/s. According to an announcement they made in October last year, a 1TB microSD card is on the way too. Thanks to New Atlas for spotting the release.

All Lexar product designs undergo extensive testing in the Lexar Quality Labs, facilities with more than 1,100 digital devices, to ensure performance, quality, compatibility, and reliability. The 1TB Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I card is available now at an MSRP of $499.99.
