Lexar to Release Pro 1000X CF Cards

lexar-1000x

1000X means read speeds of up to 150MB per second (write speeds lower). While that seems to pale in comparison with Sony’s new XQD card at 1Gbps, Lexar’s┬ánew Professional 1000X CF cards are guaranteed to capture video at 20Mbps with no dropped frames.

The new Lexar CF card is based on the high-speed performance of UDMA 7 technology. The company said the new card’s performance is optimized to leverage the latest photo and video features available in high-end DSLR cameras, allowing capture of high-quality images and 1080p HD and 3D video, and then transferring them from card to computer at blazing-fast speeds.

The new Lexar Professional 1000x CF card will be available in February, with MSRPs of $170 (16GB), $300 (32GB), $530 (64GB), and $900 (128GB, this last one’s available in April).
