The CompactFlash Association (CFA) has unveiled the latest CF specifications known as CF5.0. The new specs add expansion options and more performance to the CF storage media.

New features of the update include 48-bit addressing, data set management control/Trim, ATA references updated to ATA-6 and ATA-8/ACS-2. Performance control is options, and a change to the interface electrical specification to comply with the ATA standard.

The benefits of these new features include new capacity CF cards beyond the current 137GB limit and data transfers up to 32MB per transfer verses the 128K transfers now. The spec will allow for more efficient clean up of unused space. Other improvements are also added to the new specifications, but the ones mentioned are the most important.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
