HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology, introduces its first-ever gaming-oriented microSD card series for Nintendo Switch, Android phones and tablets and other portable gaming devices - the HyperX Gaming microSD Series. The HyperX Gaming microSD offers high-speed data transfers as demanded by gaming devices. The Gaming microSD feature read speeds of up to 100MB/s and write speeds of up to 80MB/s. Aside from gaming devices, the HyperX Gaming microSD cards are also ideal for video recording devices such as action cameras and drones that require fast read and write speeds.
Built For Mobile Gaming
The HyperX Gaming microSD Card is compatible with Nintendo Switch, Android mobile phones, Android tablets and other portable gaming devices that use a microSD expansion slot for extended storage. The Nintendo Switch with its limited built-in storage would lead users to use a microSD to added storage to install more games. Also, the demand for high-performance microSD cards is expected to grow as games grow larger in memory requirements. HyperX Gaming microSD Cards meet the needs of on-the-go gamers who download games and downloadable content (DLC) and don’t want to carry multiple cards or wait for long load times.
