The world's first 1TB microSD card is finally on sale at a slightly lower price than expected

You can now buy a 1TB microSD memory card

SanDisk's offering is the faster of the two and it's finally available to order over on Amazon for a rather hefty £453.99.

It's also a card that can take quite a beating: SanDisk says it was built to be temperature-proof, water-proof, shock-proof, and X-ray proof. You can also use it on any of your camera, GoPro, or drone.

The card can do sequential reads and writes at up to 160MB/sec and 90MB/sec. The card's A2 rating means it can cope with having apps run directly from it - great for Android owners that don't own a Pixel.

Back in February, at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, SanDisk announced their most capacious microSD memory card yet - a behemoth with 1TB of storage memory. It now has 512GB EVO Select and EVO Plus cards available for $99.99 and $102.90 respectively on Amazon.

The company said at the time the card would be available in April, but The Verge noticed that it has taken until now for it to actually hit retailers.

Naturally, speeds are just as important as capacity, and unsurprisingly, this bad boy shines in that particular department as well, with up to 160MB/s read and maximum 90MB/s write velocity. There are ExtremePro models, with a 32GB to 400GB capacity range and faster transfer speeds; up to 90MB/sec writes and 170MB/sec reads, slightly faster reads than the Extreme card.

Its Extreme Plus range supports video speeds of C10, U3 and V30.
