Samsung Unveils New PRO Ultimate Memory Cards for Professional Content Creators

Samsung announced its new flagship UHS-I memory card model ‘PRO Ultimate’ in microSD and full-size SD form factors, enabling professional photographers and content creators to maximize productivity in their creative workflows. The new PRO Ultimate lineup features a capacity of up to 512 gigabytes (GB) and a remarkable sequential read speed of up to 200 megabytes-per-second (MB/s).

“With the growing volume of high-resolution content generated from gadgets such as drones, action cameras and DSLR cameras, professional creators should be able to work with large–sized content seamlessly, whether they are writing, reading or transferring their data,” said Hangu Sohn, Vice President of Memory Brand Product Biz Team at Samsung Electronics. “As creators rely on high speed and performance of the memory cards, the new Samsung PRO Ultimate significantly reinforces such needs through enhanced controller technologies and multi-proof protection features.”  

Best-in-Class Read and Write Speeds with UHS-I Interface

The PRO Ultimate underscores Samsung’s technical innovations, setting an industry-leading standard with read speeds of up to 200 MB/s, the maximum speed achievable through the UHS-I interface, and write speeds of 130 MB/s. These reliable high-performance read/write speeds, regardless of capacity, allow for the seamless transfer of heavy-duty files such as 4K ultra-high definition (UHD) and Full HD (FHD) video with Video Speed Class 30 (V30) support. 

To meet consumer needs for the ability to manage large volumes of content and quick transfers to other devices, the PRO Ultimate microSD card showcases an Application Performance Class 2 (A2), facilitating high performance for random read and write operations as well as multi-tasking capabilities.

Increased Reliability and Durability

The Samsung PRO Ultimate provides professional photographers and creators with reliable performance, thanks to the controller’s enhanced Error Correction Code (ECC) engine and multi-proof protection features that ensure safer data storage over extended periods.

With an upgrade to the ECC’s Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) code from a 1-kilobyte (KB) to a 2KB engine, the PRO Ultimate offers enhanced durability for a higher volume of write-and-erase cycles.

The PRO Ultimate passes the industry’s most rigorous test settings and offers worry-free usage even in challenging environments, with features such as water protection for up to 72 hours in two meters of depth, drop-proof design from heights of up to five meters, wear-out protection for up to 10,000 swipes, as well as X-ray and magnetic protection. It can also operate in extreme temperatures ranging from -25°C to 85°C (-13°F to 185°F). Additionally, the PRO Ultimate SD card provides shock protection of up to 1,500g.      

Maximized Power Efficiency with 28nm Controller

A new 28-nanometer (nm) controller brings a 37% improvement in power efficiency compared to Samsung’s previous lines that include the 55nm controller. This gives consumers the ability to use their devices for extended periods without the need for frequent recharging, allowing users to make the most out of their device's battery life.

Multi-Device Compatibility

The PRO Ultimate SD card is compatible with DSLR and mirrorless cameras, camcorders, PCs and laptops, maximizing the ability to create, edit and transfer high-performance media across multiple devices.

Lenovo Introduces the Legion 9i, the World’s First AI-Tuned Gaming Laptop with Integrated Liquid-Cooling System

Lenovo announced its top-of-the-line Lenovo Legion™ 9i (16”, 8), the first 16-inch gaming laptop in Lenovo Legion’s ecosystem—and in the world—with a self-contained liquid-cooling system1, designed for gamers and creators with heavy graphic workflow requirements who need a full development studio in their bag. The Lenovo Legion 9i caps out the Lenovo Legion lineup that also includes the Lenovo Legion Pro series for competitive gamers and the Lenovo Legion Slim series for gamers who value agility, as well as Lenovo Legion displays and peripherals. Also announced today are the Lenovo Legion 16” Gaming Backpack GB700 and GB400, two backpack options that give gamers a choice between slim and lightweight agility or extra storage without sacrificing protection for their Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) or any other laptops and accessories.

“The introduction of the Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) marks the latest pinnacle of Lenovo Legion’s gaming laptop innovation. The Lenovo Legion 9i is first laptop in the Lenovo Legion ecosystem with an integrated liquid-cooling system and hardware AI chip tuning. The forged carbon A-cover, which in addition to its ‘unique-to-each-laptop aesthetics’ means a lighter laptop for gamers and creators who demand nothing but the best.” said Jun Ouyang, Lenovo’s vice president and general manager of the Consumer Business Segment, Intelligent Devices Group. “We are constantly challenging ourselves to push the limits when designing gaming solutions. The Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) has set a new benchmark for us that we are excited to meet—and exceed—in the future.”

The Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) redefines powerful luxury in the gaming laptop space. From the 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-13980HX processor, up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4090 Laptop GPU, and either 64GB Overclocked 5600Mhz Dual Channel DDR5 RAM or a blazingly fast 32GB Overclocked 6400Mhz DDR5 Dual Channel RAM, the laptop is equipped with remarkable processing hardware. But it’s how the power of these processors is unleashed that makes the Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) truly powerful.

The Legion Coldfront integrated liquid-cooling system—the first of its kind on a 16” gaming laptop1—allows the Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) to put out a maximum of 230W TDP while weighing in at just 2.56kg (5.64lbs). The system—co-engineered with Cooler Master—runs over the GPU VRAM to manage heat under extreme gaming sessions, turning on when the GPU hits 84°C to cool the GPU back down. Coupled with the AI-tuned, triple-fan air-cooling system with 6,333 individual intake vents, the Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) stays cool even under the most grueling of gaming and content creation sessions. To accommodate the added weight of the custom liquid-cooling system, Lenovo engineers had to design an innovative new A-cover made from forged carbon chips that not only saves weight, but due to the forging process means that every Lenovo Legion 9i has its own unique forged carbon chip pattern on the A-cover.
