Lexar 600x Pro CF memory cards offer 90MBps speed

Lexar Media on Tuesday announced the release of its Professional 600x CompactFlash (CF) memory card, which allows for 90MBps transfer speeds using the UDMA 6 standard. With the announcement, Lexar is the second manufacturer to offer such speeds in a CF card, as SanDisk already offers a 90MBps product range. SanDisk offers up to 64GB capacities, while Lexar makes 8GB, 16GB and 32GB cards.

When plugged into a UDMA 6 enabled reader or other device, the Lexar card claims minimum write speeds of 90MBps and read speeds of 80MBps. Pro photographers with fast-shooting DSLRs can also benefit from the fast memory cards, as the camera's buffer can be cleared quicker during burst shots.

The new Professional 600x CF cards will be available in 8GB and 16GB capacities on October 22nd, with the 32GB version shipping in November. All will include a free download of Image Rescue 4 software for recovering potentially lost images from any card.
