Sony’s New SF-G SD Cards are the World’s Fastest

February 28, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Sony has just brought in its new lineup of SD cards which comes with a trait that users demand the most; blazing transfer speed. The new SF-G cards are not just impressively speedy, but are also the ones claimed to be the world’s fastest by the manufacturer.

The SF-G cards is touted to be clocking speeds of 300 MBps, with the read speed said to be up to 300MBps along with write speeds of up to 299 MBps. With such readings, the SF-G cards should easily claim the spot of being the world’s fastest memory cards.

What’s further impressive is that Sony has managed to pull out the trick even without having the cards being rolled out under the latest SD standards. Sony’s SF-G cards employ the USH-II memory bus, and it also doesn’t follow the latest SD 5 specifications for cards. Sony says that the improved speed have been obtained by tweaking the firmware along with the introduction of algorithm that curbs the retardation of write speeds.

However, users must be aware of the fact that despite having the world’s fastest cards, they would only be barely able to make use of those speeds. That’s because there aren’t many devices available that can make use of the high-speed cards that have been designed for professional cameras. Moreover, the ones that are capable already make use of faster memory formats for bettered write speeds.

But it can still offer better speeds when transferring the data from your devices to computer. Users could also snap continuous burst shots photos with high-resolution with little loss, provided they have a powerful hardware in their camera that can tally with the speeds of the card.

The SF-G cards are available at three different sizes: 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB. Sony will launch the cards into the market by spring 2017.
