Sandisk has introduced its new 'Ducati Edition' range of high speed flash memory cards, inspired by its sponsorship of the Ducati Corse MotoGP team. Available in CompactFlash and SDHC formats with capacities of 4 and 8 GB for the CF and 4GB for the SDHC, the new media are Sandisk's fastest yet - claimed to reach speeds of 45 and 20 MB per second respectively. The SDHC card is of Sandisk's 'Plus' design incorporating a USB plug into the body of the card which is protected by a hinged section of the shell - until now this feature has been limited to the Ultra II range.

Quoted from the full article:

“These speeds allow for fast transfers of images from the cards, and are especially useful for professional photographers in their work-flow environments.”
The main advantage of fast cards is to speed up the download to the computer after shooting, not so much the in-camera writing speed (because of the buffers in DSLRs, you may not notice the in-camera write performance).
