article title is misleading...

USB drives and SD cards with 64GB or more capacity have been available for years...

I was kinda hoping this would provide useful information like data rates, prices, & USB 3.0 availability. Samsung really needs to pay more for better Toms Hardware Ads disguised as articles.

[citation][nom]princessolive[/nom]That is GBs per chip not per device.[/citation]
[citation][nom]ruffopurititiwang[/nom]Actually, it's 8GB per chip.[/citation]
Pedantic, he was rightly pointing out to the people who state they already have 64Gb SDXC cards, that if they crack it open it isn't a single chip but several.

We can't be far away from 1Tb USB3.0 flash drives, can we?

C'mon, guys, it's not that hard:

Gb = Gigabit= 1,024 bits of data.
GB = Gigabyte= 1,024 bytes = 8,192 bits of data

Please correct the article title; Word auto-correct probably capitalized it for Mr. Parrish automatically. If you read the article itself it makes sense.

That said, more storage per single chip with double data rate sounds good to me, especially if it leads to price drops.

I think you meant Kb and KB for those numbers, or you meant 1 Gb = 1,024 Mbits and 1 GB = 1,024 MBytes.
