ProGrade Digital has announced a new dual SD card reader round out its memory card reader lineup.

The Dual-Slot SD Card Reader is the fourth in ProGrade Digital's lineup that includes a CFast & UHS-II SD, CompactFlash & UHS-II SD, and dual UHS-II microSD card readers. It uses the USB 3.1, Gen. 2 interface and supports the maximum 10Gb/s (1.25GB/s) transfer speed.

The card reader also uses ProGrade Digital's patent-pending magnetic base and features LED indicators for both card slots to display data transfer activity. The device is backwards compatible with UHS-I cards and USB 3.0 devices.

In addition to the card reader, ProGrade Digital includes two 45cm (18in) USB cables: one Type A to Type C and one Type C to Type C. It comes with a two-year warranty and retails for $79.99.


Update (January 4th, 2019): a previous version of this article incorrectly stated the possible transfer speeds of UHS-II memory cards. While the USB 3.1, Gen. 2 interface is technically capable of supporting 10Gb/s (1.25GB/s) transfer speeds, UHS-II memory cards top out at 312 MB/s (HD312), which would make for a theoretical maximum transfer speed of 624 MB/s if offloading two cards simultaneously.
