Transcend has introduced its latest line of speedy CF cards with a 400x speed rating. The cards come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB flavors and are capable of theoretical transfer rates as up to 90MB/s read and 60MB/s write speeds. The 400x label isn’t quite as speedy as we see in the latest SanDisk, Lexar and Photofast cards, but it’s still pretty darn quick and will require the latest UDMA mode 6 capable DSLRs to take full advantage of their speed.
