Sony Memory Stick PRO-HG

Sony's PRO-HG flash technology bore its first fruits today and produced the Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo. Living up to earlier claims, the format doubles the bandwidth of the interface and makes for much faster performance than other cards. Writes take place at a minimum 15Mbps and reads are even better at 240Mbps. The speed is especially vital for owners of the upcoming CX7 Handycam, Sony says: transferring a 3.6GB HD video file takes only two minutes on a PRO-HG Duo stick.

The first Memory Sticks to carry the speed boost will ship in August at capacities of 1GB ($60), 2GB ($90), and 4GB ($150). A companion ExpressCard adapter for notebooks without a built-in reader will also be available at the same time but hasn't received its formal price.
