Lexar cranks up the gear a notch with the introduction of their latest memory card of the Compact Flash variety, proudly introducing the industry’s first 1000x CF card. Yes sir, just like cars, memory cards can never be fast enough, where it touts an eye popping 150MB/s read speeds, and has been tested to record data streams at up to 20MB/s. Videographers and photographers will definitely throw envious glances at this Lexar 1000x CF card, waiting for the moment where they can pick one up from the store and start shooting away, feeling the unity of great shooting skill, superb equipment and lag-free memory cards. At least, until the next, faster version comes out, that is.
Lexar has promised that their Professional 1000x CompactFlash card is capable of supporting the Video Performance Guarantee (VPG-20) specification, so that professional-quality video capture is made possible at high frame rates without having to endure the indignity of dropped frames. Not only that, each purchase will also be accompanied by the Image Rescue software that will come in handy to recover lost or deleted files. Expect to fork out $169.99, $299.99, $529.99 and $899.99 for the 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB versions. [Press Release]
