At CES 2017, SanDisk has announced an all new 256GB MicroSD card specifically aimed at mobile devices. The new card supports Application Performance Class 1, or A1 for short, a new standard in the industry for storage cards. This new standard means that this card is fast enough to run applications directly from them, not just be a storage facility for photos and videos. The challenge with MicroSD cards in mobiles is that they are often too slow on the read/write to be able to run an application. This new card from SanDisk solves that, with a read speed of 95MB/sec and the ability to handle up to 1500 random read input-output access per second and 500 write input-output access per second. All this technical information simply says that this card is blazing fast and can run applications in real time with no problem.
