Sony Announces Fastest Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX

Sony’s new Memory Stick is its fastest ever made, chalking up data transfer rates of 50MB/s.  Sony claims the new Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX is faster than the fastest UHS-I SD cards when used in Sony cameras.  However, I’m not aware of any Sony cameras that are UHS-I compliant in the first place.

The new 50MB/s Memory Sticks should be available this May at the same prices of the previous generation cards in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB flavors.  Look for them at B&H Photo.
