Lexar has announced support for XQD memory card specification.
The announcement means that Lexar cards will be compatible with the likes of the Nikon D4 and future XQD based camera models.
Lexar XQD memory cards should be available later in 2012 and will offer a high speed performance in a range of capacities to effectively capture and store high quality images, including 1080p HD video and 3D video content.
XQD memory cards are based on the PCI Express specification, which offers 2.5Gb per second performance today with plans for 5Gb per second performance in the future.
