A 1TB SD card, why not?

16 years on from their first 64MB SD card, SanDisk have unveiled a 1TB SD card – the biggest SD card in the world! Although this is just a prototype. When this card will be available is unknown but, SanDisk are already boasting the card’s ability to handle 8K, and VR.

This all sounds amazing, but being a 1TB card, this will not be cheap. Also, read and write speeds will be compromised for such large storage.  Something worth considering.
