Can anyone tell me if these can provide a tangible benefit when used in conjunction with Windows Ready Boost? Such as a laptop with a USB 3.0 card reader and a traditional HDD?

So which companies actually make flash memory and/ or controlers? Sandisk use to be really popular, but they are starting to lag behind the competition, or at least they are no longer a market leader in any form for memory cards.

No it wont benefit you unless you have 2gb of ram or less.

If you have a laptop that is usb 3.0, that would mean it uses ddr3 ram, which you can upgrade cheaply and easily, destroying anything ready boost can offer.

JN77,

SanDisk and Toshiba produce and develop flash together.

What makes you say SanDisk is lagging? Their sd cards are awesome, and they practically dominate the NAND market

Useless for pictures but for Hi Def and 4K video cameras, very useful. I'll wait till they have it in a 128GB flavour as 32GB can get eaten pretty fast at 1080 60p.

Soon the SD card as bottleneck in high-FPS dSLR will be a thing of the past!

I guess because I am a power user and back at CES or one of the tech expos in 2008 some companies showed off 128,256,512gb and 1 and 2 TB MicroSDXC cards, so we know they exist.

Yet Sandisk and Toshiba, or other flash memory providers are not releasing 128gb and higher flash products on a consistent basis.

Apple (as much as I love them) has come out with a 128gb Ipad, Samsung has not come out with a 64gb or larger Nexus tablet,

The GS3, GS4 and Note 2 support ExFAT so they can accept 64gb + storage cards. I would love to purchase a tablet that has 128, 256,512gb or even 1Tb of storage on it, and I would like to see those MicroSDXC cards in those sizes too. (64gb does not cut it anymore).

Maybe with the UHS Class II read and write speeds, we will start seeing the larger cards come out.

you either dont know of/never used a HQ camera that can take pictures faster than you can store them.

personally, i would rather tablets just come with a little more than what it takes the load the os, and offset it with 20-50$ voucher for a sd card.

Thanks JN77,

Sandisk seems to focus on sheer performance more than capacity.

Don't waste your time... ReadyBoost is not worth the hassle. For the price these cards will likely sell you can probably buy a small SSD anyway, which will yield vastly higher performance improvements.

Buy more RAM, get an SSD, and forget about ReadyBoost, my friend.

They are for the Ultra High Speed Interface... so it won`t help on older devices...and until they become affordable there will be others cards/devices more advanced... so - if you already have a device is not worth the upgrade to those cards.

Are there any on-the-market devices that can use the UHS-II standard and allow these cards to run at significant fractions of their speed, or is it a curiosity for now?
