SanDisk’s New 256GB A1 MicroSD Card Wants All of Your Apps

SanDisk Ultra A1 256GB Deal

SanDisk announced a new microSD card this week at CES, a card that is rated A1 for its performance while handling apps to “launch and run apps at blazing speeds.” In other words, this is a card built for users who want to store apps outside of their internal storage, yet still see solid performance.¬†

This is the first card in the world with an¬†Application Performance Class rating of A1. While the transfer speeds of up to 95MB/s aren’t necessarily new, SanDisk claims that this new card can “manage random read input-output access per second (IOPS) of 1,500 and write IOPS of 500, so it can quickly open apps and process accompanying tasks, such as audio, graphics, saved profiles and in-app permissions.”

Taking advantage of Google’s Adoptable Storage probably won’t be an issue if you decide to pick up one of these cards.

This new A1-rated microSD card from SanDisk will arrive this month for $199.99.
