Difference between Micro SD, Micro SDHC, and Micro SDXC Memory Cards

Main Difference

With respect to the capacity limit, micro SD has the minimum stockpiling limit at just around 2 GB. Micro SDHC comes next with up to 32 GB of storage room. Micro SDXC has the most stockpiling limit at a potential 2 TB. Despite the fact that, being a micro SDXC, stockpiling limit at present accessible is just 200 GB. Presently for their velocity: it depends for the most part on their rate classes which are normally 2, 4, 6 and 10, with 2 having least serial information composing pace of 2 MB/s, 4 at 4 MB/s, 6 at 6 MB/s, and 10 at 10 MB/s. Also, for micro SDHC and micro SDXC, ordinarily, their pace is set apart by UHS 3 or a UHS 1. With UHS 1, least speed will be at 10 MB/s and UHS 3 at 30 MB/s.As to similarity, micro SD cards can consent to fresher host gadgets. This would now imply that micro SD cards are perfect for SD, SDHC, and SDXC host items. For micro SDHC cards, they are not perfect with SD host items but rather are good with SDXC and SDHC items. In conclusion, micro SDXC cards are only perfect with SDXC host items. So to outline, micro SDXC has a higher stockpiling limit than a micro SDHC and a micro SD card. For their paces, micro SDHC and micro SDXC have a speedier exchange rate than your micro SD cards. Costs then again will rely on upon their capacity limit and speed class.


Micro SD

micro-sd-fullThe SD card is the original of Secure Digital cards that were created to enhance our involvement with the MMC (Multimedia Card) standard. From that point forward, scaled down and micro SD cards have been created to target cell telephones and enhance their constrained storage room. MMC – a memory card standard utilized for capacity. Like the SD card yet has a wide assortment of capacity limit, more sticks, and lower speed in the exchange rate, and is not as progressive as SD cards. A micro SD memory card has a most extreme space of 2 GB. It has a standard size of 11 mm by 15 mm. This card has a most extreme read and composes rate of 25 MB/s, which is thought to be modestly quick considering its little size.It is for the most part utilized for cell telephones for putting away photographs, recordings, and basic applications. You can get one at around $7.


Micro SDHC

micro-sdhcOtherwise called Secure Digital High Capacity, it is much as the same as your micro SD cards, however, has a higher stockpiling limit of 4 GB up to 32 GB. It is still a safely advanced card that has the same standard size of 11mm by 15mm. It likewise has a higher exchange rate of conceivably 50 MB/s and up to 150 MB/S.In any case, while SDHC cards are physically and electronically indistinguishable with your standard SD cards, more established host gadgets for SD cards are not good with your SDHC cards, essentially on the grounds that SDHC cards are pre-designed with the FAT32 record framework while SD cards generally have an arrangement of FAT12, FAT16 or FAT16B. However, other host gadgets can oblige the more up to date SDHC cards. Particularly, with an FAT32 document framework or can experience a firmware overhaul. In the interim, micro SDHC host gadgets are required to acknowledge more established SD cards. It means you can utilize your old SD cards with new innovations that can agree to an SDHC card. Contingent upon the extent of your micro SDHC card, costs can go from $6 up to $20.

Micro SDXC

microsdxcOtherwise called Secure Digital eXtended Capacity, this micro SDXC card can bolster 32 GB up to a potential 2 TB GB of space. Like the other micro SD cards, it has a standard size of 11mm by 15mm. It has a rapid exchange rate of 50 MB/s and up to 312 MB/s. While it has the possibility to achieve 312 MB/s, it really relies on upon the variant of its outline and its class speed. At form 3.0 with a UHS-1 (Ultra-High-Speed transport), it can go to up to 104 MB/s. Also, with a more up to date adaptation 4.0 with a UHS-2 that was presented in June 2011, it can reach up to 312 MB/s. Cost changes at around $15 to $200.


Key Differences

  • The Micro SD card has the 2 GB of capacity space. You will get 4 GB to 32 GB of capacity space in the Micro SDHC. The capacity of the 32 GB to 200 GB of storage room (Potentially at 2 TB) is available in the Micro SDXC.
  • Costs differ at around $7.00 in the Micro SD. Prices fluctuate at around $6 to $20 in the Micro SDHC. While the Prices shift at around $15 to $200 in the Micro SDXC.
  • The micro SD card utilizes FAT12, FAT16 or FAT16B as a document system. The micro SDHC uses FAT 32 as record system. The Micro SDXC employs exFAT as document framework.
  • The Exchange rate is conceivably 25 MB/s in the Micros SD. The transfer rate from a potential 50 MB/s to 150 MB/s in a micro SDHC card. The Transfer rate from a potential 50 MB/s to 312 MB/s in the Micro SDXC.
