SanDisk gets speedy with faster flash cards

Memory company SanDisk said it has introduced a range of Extreme Pro CompactFlash memory cards with faster read and write speeds than before.

The cards, which ship in capacities from 16GB to 64GB use a power core controller that can deliver read and write speeds of up to 90MB/s. That, it claims, doubles the performance from its previous high end camera memory cards.

The faster cards are shipping now and SanDisk also claims that they have better reliability using firmware algorithms and a 42-bit ECC engine. There are also fewer components on the cards, said SanDisk.

The Extreme Pro cards are priced at between $300 and $800, depending on capacity and on what retailers choose to charge.
