Samsung Unveils New PRO Ultimate Memory Cards and have up to 200MB/s read speeds

For professional photographers and content producers, Samsung has just unveiled PRO Ultimate, their new top-tier UHS-I memory card series.

A ten-year restricted warranty is included with the new PRO Ultimate memory cards. Users will also have access to options with card readers built in for both sizes and all capabilities.

The fastest read and write rates allow the smooth transfer of larger files like 4K ultra-high definition.

The PRO Ultimate delivers improved endurance for a greater number of write-and-erase cycles, all credits to enhancements in the ECC’s Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) code from a 1 to 2 kilobyte engine.

They also have drop-proof construction from heights of up to five meters and wear-out protection for up to 10,000 swipes.

Further, a shock resistance of up to 1,500g is offered by the PRO Ultimate SD card.
