SecureDigital-eXtended Capacity (SDXC) received another boost today with the announcement that memory vendor Kingston has launched its first 64GB SDXC card.

The card features class-10 speed (minimum 10MB/second data transfer speed) but will peak at up to 60MB/second read and 35MB/second write speeds.

Its designed to operate with the new exFAT (FAT64) file system and requires Windows 7, Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 or Windows XP with at least Service Pack 2 and the exFAT update. (You can download the update for Windows XP here.)

The Class-10 card will be aimed at digital still and HD video camcorders but will require an SDXC-capable device to be used. Digital camera giant Canon has already released its A3100 IS, that supports SDXC storage.

The new card will ship by the end of June and comes with a lifetime warranty, priced at $595 in Australia and $795 in New Zealand.
