I guess with all the camera announcements this week it is only fitting that some new CF cards aimed at DSLR users are announced as well. ATP has announced what they claim to be the world’s fastest CompactFlash card to support UDMA.
The new cards are capable of 300x write speeds, which is up to 45MB/s which makes them ideal for high-resolution continuous image shooting. Three storage capacities will be available, a 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB sizes all sharing the same read and write speeds. A special CF card reader is needed to get data from the card at speeds this high.
“Our ProMax II CompactFlash Cards deliver uncompromising performance for next generation DSLR cameras with UDMA feature. At the same time, we also wanted to give everyday users a convenient, cost effective way to take advantage of the new interface," said Michael Plaksin, ATP Vice President of Sales. "For this reason, we developed our USB2.0 UDMA card reader that allows for a performance increase on an interface that is widely used and adopted today."
