ProGrade Digital Unveils Dual SD Card Reader with Speed of Up To 1.25GB/s


The storage startup ProGrade Digital has announced its latest card reader, the SD Dual Slot USB 3.1 Gen 2 card reader. Files on each card can be transferred simultaneously at speeds of up to 10Gb/s, or 1.25GB/s.

ProGrade Digital now has four different USB 3.1 Gen 2 card readers: the dual SD card one joins the dual microSDXC, Compact Flash and SD, and CFast and SD card readers.

“Many of today’s professional cameras have two SD card slots, so it is only natural that ProGrade Digital’s newest USB 3.1, Gen. 2 workflow reader be a dual-slot for SD cards,” says ProGrade CEO Wes Brewer.

Features and specs of the new reader include UHS-I/UHS-II compatibility, an LED activity indicator, a magnetized bottom that lets the reader attach to laptops, a metal mounting plate, two 18-inch cables (Type A to Type C and Type C to Type C), backward compatibility with USB 3.0 devices, Windows and Mac compatibility, and a 2-year warranty.

The new ProGrade Digital SD Dual Slot USB 3.1 Gen 2 card reader is available now for $80 from the company’s online store and through retailers such as Amazon.
