Looking at the face of the card it is no different in size (dimensions) to any other SD card. Turn it over and you see a difference, the same row of contacts at the inward edge of the card but below that an additional row of contacts.
It is stated to have read speeds of up to 270MB/s*² and write speeds of up to 260MB/s*². However due to the high quality for one year there is data recovery software available for free. The card itself is warrantied for five years.
As always the way of calculating size varies and while this card is 32GB the actual available storage is only 29.8GB.
The difference in transfer speed between UHS-I and UHS-2 is roughly x3. The max speed is read 270MB/s as opposed to 95MB/s. The write speed differential is 260MB/s against 95MB/s.
The box also states that this card is X-ray proof. The video speed class is 90.
While 8K really future proofs the card being able to capture 4K video without any frame drop is something that a lot of other cards cannot still deliver this card can.
The other sizes available are 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, there likely Euro prices are 102, 205 and 410.
For those of us old enough to remember a 100k floppy drive then the size of these cards is quite mind blowing and all on the size of something that can be covered by your thumb nail.
So 8K is described as twice as many horizontal pixels and twice as many vertical pixels as with 4K and four time as many overall so a huge amount of detail.
This card is designed to work in temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius and up to 85 degrees Celsius and no I have not tested either of these extremes I have taken Toshibas word on these extremes.
While my tests have hardly been able to scratch the surface of what the card is stated to be capable of everything I have asked it to do has been done without even the slightest hesitation.
The Toshiba SDHC UHS-II Card 32GB should be available in Q1 2019 for 60 Euros.
