Sony announced the “fastest SD card in the world,” on Thursday, a new SF-G Series UHS-II SD card that will soon launch in three capacities.

The new Sony SD cards offer read speeds up to 300MB/s and write speeds up to 299MB/s, making them perfect for photographers, videographers and even folks with large file libraries who need to move and write content as quickly as possible.

“The quick write speed supports maximum performance of digital imaging devices, contributing to longer continuous shooting of high-resolution images with UHS-II supporting cameras,” Sony said, highlighting why they’re particularly compelling for photographers. ” It also contributes to a shorter buffer clearing time so users never miss a critical moment.”

Coming this spring

The new SD cards are set to launch this spring in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities. They’ll be available with new special high-speed SD card readers that support USB 3.1 Gen 1 for fast file transfers, too.
