Last June, the SD Association announced SD Express, an incredibly fast SD card standard that taps a PC's PCI Express bus for speeds up to 985 Mbytes/s. Virtually no one adopted it. Now, the SD Association has tried again, applying the same spec to the much more popular microSD card form factor: microSD Express. On paper, the SD Express standard should have succeeded.
