Ideal for mobile gamers who need additional storage to store and play games on their favorite device. HyperX Gaming microSD Cards feature read speeds of 100MB/s and write speeds of 80MB/s1, meeting or exceeding Nintendo Switch requirements. The new product line is available in 64G, 128G and 256G capacities.
“We are proud to expand our line of HyperX accessories with the new Gaming microSD Cards,” said Andrew Ewing, senior manager for console business, HyperX. “Our goal was to bring reliable, high-capacity and plug-and-play storage to mobile gamers and HyperX is excited to make that happen.”
The HyperX Gaming microSD Card is compatible with Nintendo Switch, mobile phones, tablets and other portable gaming devices that have a microSD slot for extended storage.
