WD's SanDisk's UHS-I microSDXC, meanwhile, boasts "up to" speeds of 160MB/s reads and 90MB/s writes.
The SD Express standard, part of the wider SD 7.1 strategy, announced at the show will deliver read speeds of up to 985MB/s - almost ten times faster than the top-out speed of current cards.
Earlier today, we reported on some very exciting news regarding microSD - a new faster "Express" version of the card type is on the way. microSD Express will usher in a new era of ultra-fast diminutive storage cards. But the big question is backwards compatibility - to which the answer is yes, if you put an Express card into an older device, it will work as a normal legacy SD card. Even now with Samsung offering 1TB of in-built storage with its latest flagship smartphone - the Galaxy S10 Plus - microSD cards are making a statement of intent. However, if you do not need this much storage space and are in no mood to splurge, you can go for the $199.99 512GB variant.

That was really the biggest down point of the Galaxy Fold, making the device look really odd when folded. The phone has a 4.6-inch smartphone screen which opens up to a 7.3-inch AMOLED Infinity Flex display .
SanDisk's card will be available from April and, while there's no local pricing just yet, it's set to cost U.S. $449.99 at launch, which translates to just under $700 Australian, so it's, uh, not gonna be cheap.
The Micron c200 1TB microSDXC UHS-II card is expected to ship at some point during Q2 2019, although a price has not yet been announced.
Micron says it's using quad-level cell (QLC) NAND in 96 layers. Both are available to pre-order now on SanDisk's website. The cards reach these record-breaking speeds by leveraging Western Digital's proprietary flash technology.
