Lexar Media Announces 80X Professional CompactFlash Cards with 12MB/s Minimum Sustained Write Speed - Lexar Media doubled the minimum sustained write speed capability of its Professional Series CompactFlashä (CF) product line to 80X, or 12MB per second. With this introduction, Lexar Media is providing the fastest CompactFlash with guaranteed write speeds available, serving the needs of professional photographers and all digital camera users requiring faster image write times. Lexar is offering its 80X Professional Series CompactFlash cards in five different capacities, including 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2GB and 4GB.
The 80X cards also include an enhanced version of Write Acceleration, which optimizes the cards' firmware to reduce overhead associated with transferring data from the camera to the memory card, and improves in-camera performance in high-resolution CompactFlash based cameras. Lexar's new Write Acceleration also provides a larger controller buffer to accommodate transferring up to 32 sectors of data to the card in one command, in cameras supporting this feature. CompactFlash cards without Write Acceleration typically transfer only one sector of data at a time.
