Micron’s 1.5TB MicroSD card is more expensive than a diamond

More than seven months after it was announced, the world’s first 1.5TB micro SD card, Micron’s MTSD1T5ANC8MS-1WT, landed, also almost. Some tech wholesalers have listed the card also known as the i400 on their websites, and depending on how much you need and the territory you’re buying from, customers may have to wait at least four months. Mouser, arrow and Avnet (plus its subsidiaries Farnell (opens in a new tab), Newark (opens in a new tab), Element14) listed it with Newark as the cheapest in Newark, only $420.53, price includes free shipping.

Buy at least 12,000 of them to see the price drop to $381 (for a total cost of over $4.5 million), a not-so-bad price for 18PB (yes, that’s Petabytes) of stateful memory solid weighing no more than 4Kg (without packaging, of course). In case you were wondering, this microSD card costs the same as its weight in a 0.125 carat diamond ($1.1 million per Kg).
