Transcend has launched its new 32GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-I (Ultra High Speed Class 1) memory card.

These cards can capture high-resolution images and smooth Full HD 1080p, 3D or even next-generation 4K video recording.

Transcend's cards, which offer multi-platform compatibility across a number of SDHC and SDXC devices, feature read speeds of up to 85MB/s and write speeds of up to 45MB/s.

Each card is said to be able to store a full eight hours of 1080p High-Definition footage* or over two thousand RAW images*. 

Devices not optimized to use the UHS-I interface can reportedly provide write speeds of at least 10MB/s.

Transcend SDHC Class 10 UHS-I memory cards are currently available in the following capacities: 8GB (US$25); 16GB (US$49); and 32GB (US$89). 

*Full HD Video based on 1920x1080 9Mbps H.264 AVC compression. RAW images based on 14MB file size. Actual HD video recording time may vary depending on resolution, compression profile, frame rate, interlace settings, and scene complexity.
