According to B&H photo listing there seem to be full sized SD cards as well. Also this Lexar is not under Micron but rather a Chinese firm who has bought the brand name.

WARNING: Marketing headlines information contains misinformation, these can't do 120 to 160MB/s in camera's & other non-Lexar devices.
.. it's in the small print ..

These conform to the SD UHS-I spec which has a limit of 104 MB/s interface speed (half duplex).
These don't seem to conform to the UHS-II spec 312 MB/s max (half duplex).
Transfer speeds higher than 104MB/s are only available when using the Lexar card readers doing non-standard SD transfer frequencies.

Why do they even bother with UHS-I and go all out to do UHS-III (Feb 2017) with the backwards compatibility for slower specs? Even UHS-II was early 2013.
