Secure digital card USB-3.0 reader shootout: MacBook Pro embedded SDCard reader Vs rest of the world

New Secure Digital cards sport theoretical speeds up to 104 MiB/s, for UHS-1 cards, or even 312 MiB/s for UHS-2 cards. Now, those are only bus speeds, and actual speeds may be a far cry from it, but in some instances real performance isn’t that different.

UHD Premium – How to screw the consumer in favor an industry player

One of the big news during CES 2016 was the announcement of UHD Alliance Ultra HD Premium specifications. However, all said and done, it was a complete disappointment as far as consumer interests were concerned.
