Why is this okay?

"big numba, big dolla"

products like this have always existed, the outlier that ignores cost effectiveness

i suppose there's just enough rich cunts to justify it

probably because it's the largest one available and thus a niece.
Ferrari's also go about twice as fast as my Volvo

If you don't want to pay for it, stop caring. Why does it bother you?
>>
It's because it's convenient, regular consumers would rather pay 4x more for double the storage than have to switch out cards. It's the same as people ordering takeout and tipping the delivery guy $5 instead of using a few cents of gas.

some retards out there believe everything has to follow the exponent of 2 when it comes to memory.

Mostly for the sake of filling up bits.

200 is 11001000 in binary so you have some zeros that are unused.

Thats it, you and me after school, we are gonna fight.

>>47045557
my guess is that it's internally 128G + 64G chips

128+64=192G, which is 206158430208b, or 206GB, minus a bit for spare blocks and rounding, and bam, 200GB
>>
>>47045848
Storage manufacturers never list the actual available space. The actual usable space of this card is probably something closer to 191GB.

>Storage manufacturers never list the actual available space.
that's not true at all
>>
>>47045314
Presumably because they couldn't manage to produce 256 GB chips with high enough yield to be viable, yet were able to have enough 256 GB chips with 200 usable to do that.

>>47045858
I bet this card has a little over 200 billion bytes of space. Just because the OS you chose doesn't measure storage in proper metric yet (1 KB = 1000 bytes, as opposed to nearest-power-of-two 1024 bytes) doesn't mean they're giving you less than they claim. Also filesystem data structures take up some space.
>>
>>47045314

Yes, because it costs money to develop that shit. Because they have to bin a lot of chips. And because of profit. Sure it's retarded to buy a 200gb sd card, but as long as people are willinbg to do it, why not?
>>
>>47045314
>GB
>exponent of two
You have been tricked
>>
>>47045926
They actually don't bin a lot of chips. A 128 GB chip with 98% bad sectors might be sold as a 2 GB chip. They just put a little microcontroller chip in with it to string together the good bits into a single usable block for you.

Someone doesn't know the difference between GB and GiB
