SanDisk’s new high-speed Extreme Pro UHS-II cards are now available for pre-order.
Recall that this new line gets its major speed boost from the UHS-II bus interface. Most SD-compatible cameras currently on the market support UHS-I, at best. The only camera so far to support UHS-II is the new Fuji X-T1.
The new SanDisk UHS-II cards offer write speeds up to 250MB/s and read speeds up to 280MB/s. The Speed Class 3 rating delivers a minimum sustained write speed of 30MB/s, which is relevant to video shooters since it allows capture of the compressed 4K video formats we are starting to see on cameras. Expect this to become a bigger theme this year. [Read more…]
SanDisk has released a new 256GB Extreme Pro CF card with minimum sustained write speeds of 65MB/s and max write speeds up to 140MB/s. Read speeds max out at 160MB/s.
The cards are UDMA Mode 7 compliant for fast buffer clearance on supported cameras. SanDisk touts the new high-capacity card as optimized for 4K video capture, which is further highlighted by the VPG-65 specification (i.e., min. sustained write speed of 65MB/s). [Read more…]
SanDisk has announced a new 64GB Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I card to complement the existing line of 8GB to 32GB UHS-I cards announced earlier this year. With a max write speed of 90MB/s and 95MB/s read speed, the new 64GB UHS-I card blows away the Extreme Pro UHS-I cards that were announced in January, which clocked in at 45MB/s. [Read more…]
