American manufacturer PNY has introduced the new UHS-II SD card series X-PRO 90, which complies with the V90 standard and is sufficiently fast for recording 8K videos at 60/120fps with a write rate of 280 MB/s.
The new X-PRO 90 series supports the UHS-II interface, which is up to twice as fast as its predecessor UHS-I and allows a maximum speed of 312 MB/s. With a read speed in half-duplex mode of up to 300 MB/s, the PNY X-PRO 90 SD cards make almost full use of the possibilities of the UHS-II interface.
Alternatively, the UHS-II bus can also operate in full-duplex mode (at half the speed of half-duplex mode), where data is transferred in the opposite direction simultaneously, allowing content to be transferred from the host to the card and vice versa at the same time. This allows users to perform two tasks at the same time, saving time if needed.
The PNY X-PRO 90 SD cards exceed the specifications of the V90 Video Speed standard, which ensures a sustained minimum read/write speed of 90 MB/s, and enables video recording with current cameras such as the Canon EOS R5 & R6, Nikon Z7 II and Sony Alpha 7S III, as well as other DSLR, mirrorless cameras and dedicated video cameras.
