Lexar Turns On the Jets, Launches World's First 1000x Memory Card

Paul Lilly

Live fast, love hard, and take a lot of pictures. If that's the motto you have tattooed on your arm, consider having it removed because that's a silly way to ink up your skin. Afterwards, take a peek at Lexar's new Professional 1000x CompactFlash (CF) card, the industry's first 1000x memory card serving up a minimum guaranteed sustained read speed of 150MB per second to help capture high quality images, 1080p Full HD video, and yes, even 3D video.

The Lexar Professional 1000x CF memory card is compatible with all UDMA CF and CF devices, so don't worry about your recently purchased DSLR tripping over itself. It supports the VPG-20 specification, which means Lexar tested and guarantees professional capture streams at up to 20MB per second, allowing you to record those Tosh.0 moments at high frame rates with no dropped frames.

Speed like this comes at a cost. Beginning February 2012, you'll be able to snag a 16GB Lexar Professional 1000x CompactFlash card for $170, 32GB for $300, 64GB for $530, and 128GB for $900.
