Samsung today launched its new flagship UHS-I memory card type ‘PRO Ultimate’ in microSD and full-size SD form factors, allowing professional photographers and content makers to enhance efficiency in their creative workflows. The new PRO Ultimate range has a capacity of up to 512 gigabytes (GB) and a stunning sequential read performance of up to 200 megabytes per second (MB/s).

Best-in-Class Read and Write Speeds with UHS-I Interface

The PRO Ultimate exemplifies Samsung’s technological advancements, setting an industry-leading benchmark with read rates of up to 200MB/s, the highest speed feasible via the UHS-I interface, and write speeds of 130MB/s. These dependable high-performance read/write rates, regardless of capacity, enable the smooth transfer of heavy-duty files such as 4K ultra-high definition (UHD) and Full HD (FHD) video with Video Speed Class 30 (V30) compatibility.

The PRO Ultimate microSD card features an Application Performance Class 2 (A2), supporting high performance for random read and write operations as well as multi-tasking capabilities, to fulfill customer demands for the ability to manage massive quantities of material and speedy transfers to other devices.

Increased Reliability and Durability

The Samsung PRO Ultimate controller’s upgraded Error Correction Code (ECC) engine and multi-proof protection features provide safer data storage over prolonged periods for professional photographers and producers. The PRO Ultimate delivers better endurance for a greater number of write-and-erase cycles by upgrading the ECC’s Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) code from a 1-kilobyte (KB) engine to a 2KB engine.

With features such as water protection for up to 72 hours in two meters of depth, drop-proof design from heights of up to five meters, wear-out protection for up to 10,000 swipes, and X-ray and magnetic protection, the PRO Ultimate passes the industry’s most stringent test settings and offers worry-free usage even in challenging environments. It can also work in temperatures ranging from -25°C to 85°C (-13°F to 185°F). Furthermore, the PRO Ultimate SD card offers up to 1,500g of shock protection.

Maximized Power Efficiency with 28nm Controller

A new 28-nanometer (nm) controller improves power efficiency by 37% over Samsung’s prior lines, which included a 55nm controller. This allows customers to use their smartphones for prolonged periods of time without the need for regular recharging, allowing them to get the most out of their device’s battery life.

Multi-Device Compatibility

The PRO Ultimate SD card is compatible with DSLR and mirrorless cameras, camcorders, PCs and laptops, enhancing the ability to produce, edit, and transmit high-performance material across numerous platforms.

The PRO Ultimate microSD card is widely compatible with Android smartphones, tablets, portable gaming consoles, action cameras, drones, PCs, and other devices. It is an excellent choice for professionals looking for a dependable and adaptable memory card to satisfy a variety of demands.
