Kingston Ramps Up CompactFlash Card Speed to 266X

Kingston 8GB 266X CompactFlash Card

Kingston CompactFlash Ultimate now comes with 266x speed, that’s 45MB/sec. read and 40MB/sec. write specifically, to provide professional photographers the speed they need for high-res continuous shooting.

The new speed is twice the minimum sustained write speed previously available in the Ultimate line of Kingston’s CF memory cards.

The new Ultimate cards will also have an added feature of free MediaRECOVER data recovery software that serves as a recovery tool to help restore lost, deleted or corrupted image files, according to Kingston.

The new CF cards are available in 2GB ($83), 4GB ($144) and 8GB ($280) capacities.
