Kingston outs Ultimate 600x with 90MBps speeds
Kingston has released its fastest memory card, the CompactFlash Ultimate 600x, which supports the UDMA mode 6 interface and offers read and write speeds of up to 90MBps. The card is designed for sports and action photographers who both shoot in high resolution and yet need burst modes often or capture HD videos, helping eliminate a bottleneck beyond the camera. The cards are available in 16GB and 32GB capacities.
The cameras and host devices need to UDMA 6 compatible as well in order to support the higher transfer speeds. Each card ships with downloadable MediaRECOVER data recovery software in the event the data is corrupted while still on the card.
The 32GB CF card lists for $270, while the 16GB version is priced at $154.
