SanDisk, owned by Western Digital, hasn’t revealed details beyond stating that the capacity breakthrough was the result of WD “leveraging its proprietary memory technology and design and production processes that allow for more bits per die.” Western Digital set the previous record two years ago, when it launched a 200GB microSD card. The company was able to double the capacity of the 200GB card which made its debut two years ago by turning to a new production process.
