Amazon currently has a TEAMGROUP 512GB Micro SDXC card for only $23.99. That’s far and away one of the least expensive 1TB Micro SDXC cards we’ve seen, and it’s fully compatible with the Nintendo Switch.
512GB Micro SDXC Card (Switch Compatible) for $23.99
If you’ve started compiling a collection of digital games, you probably already know just how limited the Switch’s base storage capacity. The Switch and Switch OLED consoles have 32GB and 64GB of internal storage, respectively, with some of it reserved for the OS. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom uses up 16GB and Breath of the Wild about 13.5GB. If bought digitally, those two games alone would take up all of your internal storage on the OG Switch console. There’s only one expansion slot in the Switch console so you want to make sure you get the biggest card you can afford.
The TEAMGROUP Micro SDXC card is compatible with virtually any device that accepts the Micro SDXC card standard. That includes the Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck, ASUS ROG Ally, any recently released smartphone that supports expandable memory, GoPros, cameras and much more.
Despite its low price, the TEAMGROUP is faster than your average Micro SDXC card. It has a U3 A2 rating (which is faster than the U1 A1 rating you’ll find on, say, the SanDisk Ultra or any Switch branded memory card) and boasts transfer speeds of up to 150MB/s. That won’t matter on a device that can’t leverage such speeds (like the Switch), but it’s good for the GoPro, smartphones, and cameras that can record in 4K.
