SanDisk Unveils Extreme Pro CompactFlash Cards, Claims Double Performance


SanDisk today announced a new line of Extreme Pro CompactFlash memory cards the company says is designed for professional photographers.

To that end, SanDisk says it has outfitted its new cards with an advanced memory controller capable of boosting read and write speeds up to 90MB/s, or double the performance from previous SanDisk high-end memory cards.

"The new SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash line is the direct result of SanDisk's passion, commitment, and break-through engineering innovation to provide best-in-class flash memory cards for professional photography," said Eric Bone, vice president, retail product marketing.

In addition to raw performance, SanDisk says its Power Core Controller's firmware algorithms and 42-bit ECC engine also ensure data integrity and a longer life through optimized wear leveling.

The new Pro series will be available in capacities of 8GB to 32GB with an MSRP ranging from about $130 to $375.
