Yesterday Fujifilm announced the launch of their new UDMA 310x CompactFlash cards that have the fastest sustained write speed of any card on the market. Thanks to a specially designed controller and the latest SLC (single layer cell) flash memory chips the new CompactFlash cards are capable of writing data at an impressive 46.5MB/sec.
You might think that a 310x card is a bit overkill, but considering that DSLR cameras are pushing towards 18 and even 24 megapixel resolutions, you don’t want to spend all day waiting for your camera to finish saving your photos. The new cards will be available in late July in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities and will cost around $100, $235 and $413 respectively.
