Pretec CompactFlash and SD cards (Not to scale)
Pretec has announced what it is calling the world's fastest 888X Compact Flash memory card and also the world's fastest 667x SDHC Class 16 memory card. The compact flash card is said to have a read speed of 133MB/s, while the SDHC card is said to read at 95MB/s and write at 80MB/s. For more information, visit www.pretec.com

From Pretec, the 1st in the world to offer SDXC 32GB card (2009), the creator of the fastest CF card in the world (667X) and the largest capacity CF card in the world (128GB), continues today its record breaking history to offer ultimate performance memory cards by unveiling the world’s fastest CF888X Card, and the world’s fastest SDHC667X Class 16 card here at Pretec Booth in CeBIT 2012 (Hall17, Booth C30).

Compliant with the latest UDMA7 standard, Pretec CF888X features the extraordinary access speed of up to 133MB/s, the highest speed CF card in the world and is breaking it’s own record of CF667X, the fastest CF card in the world previously (Read: 100MB/s, Write: 80MB/s) which was announced in CeBIT 2010. CF888X card is available from 64GB~128GB.

Pretec has announced the world’s 1st CFast™ since CES2009 in Las Vegas and later came out the 2nd generation - CFast Hypersonic, reaching even higher speed of more than 250MB/s today. By continuing the speed enhancement of CF card, the majority of PATA based CF card users, who uses digital bus instead of power hungry analog phi, has an upgrade path, to the level close to the performance of the practical SATA II today.

Prior to the announcement of SDHC667X card, Pretec has started shipping SDXC/SDHC 567X & 433X Class 16 full HD cards in November 2011. Compliant with the latest UHS-1 standard, the ultra high speed Pretec SDHC667X Class 16 cards can reach up to 95MB/s and 80MB/s in read/write speed, easily meeting the growing demands for full HD Video devices or 3D imaging capture applications without any shot-to-shot lags. Available from 16GB ~ 32GB, Pretec SDHC667X Class 16 card adopts the highly reliable SLC NAND Flash chips and thus is world’s most robust and fastest SD card in the flash industry.

The 1st in the world to offer highest capacity SD 1.0 card (4GB) and fastest (133X) in the world since July of 2005, Pretec has consistently pioneered the highest capacity and fastest SD card, with 1st SDHC (8GB) card in the world compliant with SD specification 2.0 working with video camcorders of Sanyo Electrical Co., Ltd. of Japan in Sept. of 2006, and the 1st SDXC (32GB) card in the world since March of 2009. The new SD667X complements the Pretec tradition of performance and reliability to be the fastest and most reliable SD cards in the world.
