Today, Toshiba announced the launch of the world's fastest microSD cards. The new Toshiba microSD UHS-II 32GB and 64GB microSD cards were built with 4K2K video in mind, and are capable of achieving maximum read speeds of up to 260MB/s and write speeds up to 240MB/S making them the fastest microSD cards on the planet.

To gain maximum performance users will need to purchase the new UHS-II 32GB microSD card from Toshiba, with the larger 64GB card boasting a slower speed of 140MB/s read and 130MB/s write. None-the-less, these new UHS-II cards perform more than 2.7 times faster than their previous UHS-I counterparts. Toshiba says that it will begin shipping samples to smartphone and device manufacturers soon, and the retail launch will take place later this year.
