Kingston announces SDXC Class 10 memory card

Kingston today announced a new SDXC Class 10 memory card that it claims is ideal for price-conscious consumers. The company's official statement adds further that the card captures full HD videos and high-resolution photos at an affordable price that will not break the budget. 


Fully compliant with the latest SD Association specification, Kingston’s Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) Class 10 card operates on the exFAT file system, which is designed to handle extremely large volumes of data, such as files bigger than 4GB. Available in 64GB and 128GB, these cards are an excellent choice to meet the storage demands of high-quality digital still and video cameras as well as other personal electronic devices that are SDXC compatible. Additionally, SDXC cards offer a speed “class” rating known as Class 101 that delivers a 10MB/s minimum sustained transfer rate for optimum performance with SDXC-compatible devices.

“It is important to note that although SDXC cards are identical in size to standard SD cards, they have a different design and are only recognized by SDXC host devices,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “Consumers need to make sure that their camera or camcorder carries the SDXC logo to ensure compatibility and make the most of the new, huge capacity options.”


For added reliability and durability, Kingston’s solid-state SDXC memory cards are built using nonvolatile memory components and have no moving parts that could wear out or break. All cards are 100-percent tested and are backed by a lifetime warranty as well as free live technical support. For more information, visit
