32GB Memory Stick PRO-HG

Citing the increased need for flash memory with the speed and storage for video, SanDisk and Sony together revealed Memory Stick PRO-HG, an update to Sony's format that addresses both limits in dramatic fashion, according to the two companies. The format is expected to use refinements in flash chip manufacturing to raise the capacity to as much as 32GB, rivaling the hard drives found in newer portable media players. A combination of a higher interface clock rate and doubled bandwidth will also increase its performance, the partnership claims. If a host device is optimized for PRO-HG, data can be written to the card at a minimum of 15MB per second, more than double the 6MB minimum speed of SD cards. This makes the format ideal for recording video or other content that can quickly consume large amounts of storage. The format will be released in 2007, though neither SanDisk nor Sony would confirm if or when a 32GB card would be available.
