Lexar intros 233x CF cards
Portable memory media manufacturer Lexar at the Photokina show on Tuesday revealed it has made its Professional line of Compact Flash memory cards 75 percent faster, increasing their transfer speeds from 20MBps (133x) to 35MBps (233x). The new, faster cards are available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities. Each card is also Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) compatible, and the company has introduced UDMA high-speed card readers along with the new products to take advantage of their faster download speeds.
Lexar includes its Image Rescue 3 image recovery software with each CF card. The Professional 233x CF cards will hit the market in October, though pricing information has not been announced.
