Lexar Launch Higher Capacity CompactFlash Cards - Lexar has announced higher capacity versions of its 1066x and 800x CF line.
The new Lexar Professional 1066x 256GB CF card offers a read transfer speed up to 160MB per second and write speeds up to 155MB per second. The Professional 800x CF card is now available with a capacity of 256GB, as well as the industry’s first 512GB memory card, both with read transfer speeds up to 120MB per second and write speeds up to 75MB per second. The cards dramatically accelerate workflow and provide high-speed, reliable performance to capture and transfer high-quality photos and 1080p full-HD, 3D, and 4K video.
The new 256GB Lexar Professional 1066x CF card supports the Video Performance Guarantee (VPG-65) specification for professional video capture streams at a minimum guaranteed write speed of 65MB per second for compatible host devices and recording media, while the Lexar Professional 800x CF cards support the VPG-20 specification with a minimum guaranteed write speed of 20MB per second. Compatible with all CF devices, the cards help accelerate the digital photography workflow, especially when paired with a compatible card reader.
The Lexar Professional 1066x and 800x CF cards include a free copy of the latest version of the Image Rescue software, which recovers most photo and select video files, even if they’ve been erased or the card has been corrupted. The 256GB Lexar Professional 1066x CF card will be available in the first calendar quarter of 2014 with an MSRP of £719.99. The Lexar Professional 800x CF card will be available in the first calendar quarter of 2014 with MSRPs of £1,099.99 (512GB) and £479.99 (256GB).
