PNY XLR8 microSD Cards Launching March 1st

When you buy an iPad Pro in 2022, you'll have to pay $100 extra to go from 128GB storage to 256GB storage. But fortunately things are not that extreme with memory cards.

Unfortunately Apple doesn't let iPads support memory cards for that very reason, so they have no memory card slots.

But just about every other tablet computer does, from Windows tablets, Chromebooks, Android tablets, Linux tablets, to Amazon's Fire tablets and Nintendo's tablets or handheld consoles.

The latter ones are once again getting their own “certified for Nintendo” microSD cards once again, this time from PNY who are launching the PNY XLR8 microSD cards on March 1st.

They'll be available in 128GB and 256GB form, at just $16 for the 128GB version, and $29 for the 256GB version.

The standards for the PNY XLR8 cards are Gaming Class 10 U3 V30 A2 with 100MB/s read and 90MB/s write speeds, featuring compatibility for all Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch OLED, and Nintendo Switch Lite devices, as well as tablet PCs in general.
